Fun seekers were treated to mesmerising fire performances, enjoyed vintage fairground rides and sampled the wide range of food and drink on offer.

Highlights this year included a giant walk-in mirrored infinity cube and a tulip garden with larger-than-life illuminated blooms, among the many sculptures dotted around the venue.

But the main attraction was the fireworks displays, with a quieter show for little ones in the early evening before a full-volume show set to music bringing the event to a captivating close each night.
