The Heroes In Motion Challenge

It’s sixteen years since Waterside opened in Trafford but as we are currently closed, we asked you to help us mark the occasion from home by celebrating the remarkable heroes all around us in our Heroes In Motion challenge.

Waterside houses the Cosgrove Hall Films Archive with some of the best loved animated TV heroes and characters from the 80s and 90s. To mark our 16th anniversary, we asked you to have fun in creating something special for us at home, taking inspiration from our wonderful archive to celebrate the heroes in your lives.

We shared all the brilliant entries we received with animator and founder of Cosgrove Hall - Brian Cosgrove OBE - who was delighted to review them for us, saying "My congratulations to all involved. I think the future of animation is in good hands if these films are anything to go by.”

We hope you enjoy them as much as we have.
