Children learnt how to light fires, make boats, use tools and create stick men and mobiles from natural materials.

The event was organised by Play Wild CIC – an outdoor education and forest school – which took over the Beach Lawns on Saturday.

Families climbed trees, had their faces painted and enjoyed some wild arts and crafts before dancing to some music.

Those with a sweet tooth were able to toast a marshmallow over an open fire and visitors also enjoyed an Easter egg hunt.
