This family fun day showcases all the good work that is happening in our local communities by real-life superheroes who go above and beyond the call of duty.

Hosted by Ron Hogg, the Durham Police, Crime and Victims' Commissioner, the family event is free to enter and parking is free, too.

In addition to familiar faces from the Police (and the Police Interceptors), Fire and Rescue Service, Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Service and other emergency services and local community and voluntary organisations, visitors will have the opportunity to get involved with a range of activities and demonstrations.

There will be lots of competitions taking place throughout the day, including a children's treasure hunt and a Halloween and superhero fancy-dress competition (the judging takes place at 12.00).

Adults are encouraged to share their comments, photos and videos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #CelebrateLocalSuperheroes.

Picnic tables are also available if families prefer to bring food with them.
