Youngsters posed with Batman and the replica Batmobile, and created their own superhero outfits at pop-up craft stations, complete with a mask, a shield and a cape.

The Ninja Turtles, Spiderman and Wonder Woman were also on hand for photographs, delighting the children in attendance.

Harriet, 7, after posing with Superman and Wonder Woman, said: 'I like the costumes because they look really cool. I liked them both equally.'

Adam Lockhurst, 24, who dressed as Batman with his family, said: 'Batman was my idol as a child. It gives the kids something to look forward to and it's a chance for them to meet their heroes.'

Cinema tickets were given to children with the most creative outfits, with many dressed as the Hulk, Iron Man and Thor among others.

The Batmobile proved to be the main attraction, and there were long queues for photos with the custom-built automobile and the protector of Gotham City.
