As well as musical performances which included Gabrielle, Morcheeba, All Saints and Pixie Lott, visitors to this year’s Meraki Festival could slide down a giant inflatable water slide, explore a mobile cave, ride the ferris wheel and get behind the wheel of the dodgems.

Festival-goers could also have their faces painted with glitter, get a relaxing massage, ride around on rollerskates and more.
