Youngsters gathered clues from ogres and professors in the 15th century Moat House and gardens.

Other activities included creating mystical potions led by magic Professor Robert.

There was also wand making classes which involved decorating them with a range of materials.

Birds of prey, such as owls, were showcased in the Raven Class.
