The Opera House pub was the focal point for the launch of the Tunbridge Wells Festival.
Batman abseiled down the front of the pub, a landmark building in the Kent town, to officially mark the start of the inaugural two-day festival.
Batman said: “I am always up for having fun, at times being a little bit mad. Abseiling down the Opera House on the first day of the Tunbridge Wells Festival was a good way of combining the two.”
The festival, which supported localcharities, featured more than 80 stalls, including street entertainment and a huge inflatable sleeping sow theatre.
