A country park saw record numbers of visitors enjoy a magical day of enchanting events.
Brandon Country Park welcomed more than 1,000 visitors on Friday as it held the Enchanted Forest event.
The event saw families explore the park's beautiful forest setting, with a host of accompanying activities including a fairy trail, a wishing tree and goblin-themed orienteering.
Becky Reavill, visitor development officer at Brandon Country Park, said: 'Enchanted Forest was a truly magical day; we were delighted to see so many new faces enjoying themselves at the Park.
'It was a fantastic opportunity to engage with new audiences, and with over 1,000 visitors on the day, we reached many more than we expected.
'My favourite was hearing the sound of drumming, rumbling through the forest - but there was so much to see, with imp shelters, goblin-teering, willow wands, magic webs and storytelling. Thank you to everyone who joined us and made it so magical.'
The second part to this event to celebrate the Brecks landscape is Enchanted Heath and will see West Stow Country Park get the enchanted makeover on the weekend of October 22 and 23.
