Ade Bowen, who runs Action Pussycat, organised the event in Ashcombe Park after securing funding from Weston Lions Club and Mendip House Nursery and Preschool.

Families took part in science experiments with Mini Professors, and learned forest skills in sessions run by Play Wild.

Around 100 children also took part in dance workshops.

Ade said: “Every time I looked at the circus skills there were hundreds of children and adults enjoying the equipment, and the queue at the Travelwest smoothie maker never stopped.
