THERE was plenty of fun for all the family at Artrix when the venue played host to a variety of summer-themed activities, attracting well over 100 people.
As part of the Family Fun Festival Fridays, there was a bouncy castle, craft table and balloon-modelling with popular magician Magic Russ.
All of those events were free and there was also face-painting and a nail bar which organisers said went down really well.
In the morning, youngsters got to make different animal models and masks and paint them and, in the afternoon, there was a paper craft animal workshop and a Jets Ceramic Painting session. Participants could paint a clay model which is now being fired and will be available to collect shortly.
There were also two theatre shows - one from Magic Russ who was accompanied by his ever-faithful Dave the Wonder Dog and Storybox Theatre's spell-binding production of Hans Christian Anderson's The Steadfast Tin Soldier.
Pottery workshops also took place throughout the afternoon for six to nine-year-olds who were able to make their own models to take home and decorate.
And the curtain was brought down on the day with a performance by students who have been taking part in the week-long Rock School workshops.
The finale of Club Creative - the children's holiday club- will be held today (Friday) and feature a family dance session, a DJ workshop session for budding disc jockeys aged between ten and 16 and a talent show.
