Families enjoyed a wide range of children friendly activities at the inaugural Meraki Festival last weekend.

Herts Showground hosted a zipline, a ferris wheel, a climbing wall, rockaoke, theatre, hula-hooping, swimming pools, hot tubs, massages, laser tag, graffiti artists, a maze, a movie house, and a virtual reality beach.

The Herts Ad team tried everything out for size - watch the video to see how we got on.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable.
