Batman announces visits to Gotham and Nottingham – first 30 fans get gifts!

 It has been announced today that Batman will be touring the UK in an eye-catching mobile Batman inspired van, in an alternative to Santa’s grotto this Christmas. 

The Caped Crusader will first appear in Gotham, and will then stop at Nottingham and Birmingham on Thursday 9th December, and Manchester and Leeds on Friday 10th December, delivering DC gifts to the first 30 fans in each location.

Everyone who visits Batman and enters the competition, will be in with the chance of winning one of the five full DC bundles this Christmas, with those unable to attend in person being able to enter online. 


The tour will start in Gotham, in Rushcliffe that – despite the name – is a far-cry from DC’s Caped Crusader’s home town.

Following this, the touring van will visit Nottingham and Birmingham on Thursday 9th December, and Manchester and Leeds on Friday 10th December. 

Santa and Batman have a surprising amount of similarities with both living reclusive lifestyles, being spotted on rooftops and knowing who’s been naughty or nice. The touring Batman themed van will be instantly recognisable with the iconic Bat-Symbol emblazoned on the side. Inside you can take a peak at Batman’s festive display, with Christmas decorations to fit the Dark Knight himself, including black Christmas trees. 

Look out for the Batman inspired van on 9th December at: 

  • Gotham Village (9 – 9.30am) 
  • Clumber Street, Nottingham (11.00am – 11.40am) 
  • Outside the Hippodrome Theatre, Birmingham (4 – 5.40pm) 

And 10th December at: 

  • Printworks Manchester (10 – 11.40am) 
  • South Side Parade, Leeds (2.50 – 4.30pm)
