Debenhams hosted superhero face painting throughout the afternoon while Comic Connections on Parson’s Street had art and crafts activities.

Paul Jackson, centre manager, said: “Batman and The Joker were a huge hit with everyone at Castle Quay. Although they definitely got up to their fair share of trouble, popping in to shops and scaring staff.”

The shopping centre is now looking forward to its Pop-up Planetarium on Thursday, May 31 and Friday, June 1.
