The Batman Bonanza in the Castle Mall featured a replica vehicle, based on the model used in the 1989 Batman film, Batman and Batgirl stilt walkers and craft activities.

Hundreds of children, some of whom were dressed up as their favourite superhero characters, flocked to the free event today.

Batman fan Luke Thompson, 32, from Sadlers Way in North Walsham, was visiting with his three-year-old son Oscar and eight-month-old son George.

Mr Thompson said: 'We came down for the Batmobile. Oscar loved it. The craft activities are brilliant. The event is a bit of entertainment.'
