The Senior British Bouldering Championships was among the main attractions, while the climbing walls and zip wires proved popular with all ages.

Matt Heason, one of the organisers of the event, which is arranged by Sheffield Council, said: “Most of our activities are aimed at families and just about all the feedback tells us that people who come here enjoy themselves.”

Among the local organisations taking part in the event for the first time were the team from the Onboard Skatepark in Little London Road.
