The team performed a traditional lion dance to mark the arrival of the Chinese New Year on Thursday.

The dance, as well as being entertaining, aims to bring good luck and prosperity to the watching crowd.

The Chinese lion visit was part of a series of events held at Crystal Peaks during the half-term school holidays.

Activities included an innovation day where children turned into junior scientists to take part in a series of fun experiments, such as extracting DNA from fruit, live radio broadcasts and a pancake-eating competition.

The week ended with a Love Your Pet Day, where visitors got the chance to get up close to a collection of animals including guinea pigs, rabbits, reptiles, turtles and tortoises, ducks and a monitor lizard.
