The organiser said weather warnings had been issued before the weekend, but there was 'glorious sunshine throughout the day – so we lucked out there'.

Other activities included a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, a fairytale ball, mask-making workshops, treasure chest creating, the chance to meet a dragon and a photo booth.
