Puxton Park has unveiled a new attraction to the public this week, bolstering its all-weather offering.

The 30,000 square foot Discovery Adventure Barn hosts a range of creatures and an auditorium for indoor shows.

A healthy crowd was in attendance on Saturday to meet Ardman Animations’ television and film star Shaun The Sheep, who was on hand to entertain youngsters.

The 250-seat auditorium was packed for birds of prey demonstration, which was delivered by the resident falconry experts at the park.

Animal handlers also provided guests with animal grooming classes.
