Steel City Firewalk
Hillsborough Arena // October 28th

No this isn’t a form of torture, but an adrenaline-fuelled challenge, raising money for local youth homeless charity Roundabout. All you have to do to take part is raise a minimum of £75 in sponsorship and full training will be given, so no experience is necessary. Apple bobbing, stalls, face-painting and a fancy dress competition will all be on hand to entertain whilst the daredevils amongst you get ready for the main event.

Now he is the newest recruit to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, adding a fantastical, sci-fi twist to proceedings.
