Weston’s Tropicana was a land of fantasy and wonder at the weekend.

The venue, in Marine Parade, hosted a two-day Magic of Fantasy festival which saw families enjoy some weird and wonderful attractions.

Visitors were able to enjoy magic by The Great Jaydini as well as some impressive displays from the Bubble Man and Bubble Faerie.

The audience was also captivated by some sensational storytelling by children’s author Beth Webb.

There was also music from Anna Tam and celtic folk band Vervain.

Many people opted to attend wearing some fantastical fancy dress costumes so there were capes and masks aplenty on show.

The event raised money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The charity arranges experiences for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
