Everyone’s favourite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen is in the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
Film starts at 5.30, refreshments and crafts available from 4.30. Booking advised.

You will learn how to use fresh flavours and combinations of ingredients to make dishes that look and taste so good they will become as much a part of your Christmas as the turkey!
