Hero Quest is returning on Saturday, March 7 after a similar event last year was a big hit with youngsters.

The free event will run from 10.30am to 2.30pm. Hero HQ will be on the Cornhill, but the superheroes and villains will also be appearing at the Sailmakers and Buttermarket shopping centres. Altogether, 18 characters will be taking part in the day.

Last year's Hero Quest event was originally planned as one of the first events on the Cornhill after its refurbishment, but moved to Sailmakers because of bitterly cold weather.

Disney Princesses and heroes including Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman were among those who took part, delighting their young fans, while virtual reality activities added to the fun.

A number of other special events at the Cornhill are also planned over the coming weeks, including an Easter Fun Day on Thursday, April 9, which will feature a chance to try climbing walls and music from All Star Rock School.
