On Saturday 9th July Victorian Arcade in Walsall will be hosting a very special Superhero Fun Day featuring the iconic Batmobile to entertain the whole family. From 11am until 4pm a replica of the famous Batmobile, from the original 1989 movie starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson, will be situated at the entrance of the shopping arcade for shoppers to pose and take pictures with.

Visitors are also invited to dress up as their favourite superhero character on the day and a free face painter will be on hand to complete their final look if desired.

Staff from Victorian Arcade’s retailer Bennetts toy store, who stock a wide variety of superhero memorabilia, toys and games, will be hosting a fancy dress competition on the day at 2pm. Those wishing to take part in the competition should meet outside Bennetts where the store’s owner, Bryan Miller will present a prize to the best dressed winner.

Darren Griffiths, Senior Regional Facilities Manager of GBR Phoenix Beard, the managing agents for Victorian Arcade, commented:

“At Victorian Arcade we pride ourselves on providing a truly unique retail experience for visitors so we are very excited to be hosting the replica Batmobile - it is such a rare treat to see and is sure to delight Walsall shoppers of all ages. With the addition of our free face painter, the Superhero Day is set to be great fun and we look forward to welcoming everyone in their best costumes.”
