People who came brought their favourite cuddly toy to enjoy activities such as zorbing, rafting, zip wiring and bungee jumping.

Marketing, communications and events executive Megan Allen said: “The turnout was excellent considering the weather. Sunday was definitely the better day.

“It’s definitely one of the favourite summer events here and we had great support.

“It’s a fun way to round up what’s looking to be a record-breaking summer at Sacrewell. We’ve had 20,000 visitors since the mill opened six weeks ago.
