Children will be able to dust off their capes and train in animal strength, night vision, agility and speed at ZSL’s special centre for superheroes. Once inside, junior recruits will learn how to harness the superpowers of the world’s most incredible wildlife in four training areas. After collecting their mission pack and mask, kids will step into their first class to learn all-important night vision Jae Jae and Melati, Sumatran Tigers at ZSL London Zoo. skills from the nocturnal owl – using special goggles to spot potential food in its woodland home. Next, they will unlock the power of super speed, racing against the world’s fastest land animal, the cheetah, before mastering the leafcutter ant’s super strength in time to lift a three tonne taxi safely out of the way. Finally, students can climb their way to completion like the incredible gecko, mastering their toughest skill yet – defying gravity to crawl across the bedroom ceiling. After completing the Superhero Academy training, young heroes can have their own graduation photo taken. New recruits will then need to use all their new superskills to help ZSL’s own superhero Captain Z tackle The Maze – a tricky series of obstacles and challenges made by his archnemesis Plastico, a fiendish villain trying to overwhelm the environment with plastic pollution. Once junior superheroes have finished saving the day, they can spend their downtime exploring the Zoo, discovering even more about the 19,000 super-animals who call it home. Superhero Academy is part of ZSL’s 2018 Superhero Takeover, a year-long celebration of incredible wildlife and the ZSL superheroes working to protect animals around the world. www.zsl.org/superheroes THE 2018 NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL The iconic Notting Hill Carnival returns bigger and better this year on 25 August - 27 August. It starts with the Panorama event on 25th, the main event is on Sunday 26th (family day), followed by the traditional celebrations on Bank Holiday Monday, 27th August. Notting Hill Carnival is Europe’s largest free street festival and is a vital date in the diary for any visitor to London. It features a spectacular parade that showcases London's rich and varied multicultural heritage with masquerade bands, steel bands and samba bands as well as live music stages, sound systems, children’s activities, and an array of delicious Caribbean food stalls to choose from. Notting Hill is an all inclusive celebration of Caribbean culture and symbolises the effect the Windrush generation and larger local community has had on Britain. These people are its heartbeat and not only laid the foundations of Carnival, but also the wider community groups that are now a vital part of Notting Hill. Although Notting Hill Carnival is still a very community-lead event, its everincreasing popularity over the last 5 decades has seen it swell to become the wonderfully diverse and vibrant event it is today. With over a million expected over the August bank holiday, it’s second only to Brazil’s Rio carnival in size. t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e
