Scores of families enjoyed a day filled with music, dance, demonstrations and workshop yesterday, at an event looking at how children growing up in the 21st century are raised.

About 100 families turned out to support the event, which was organised by 21st Century Child,

Mia Philips, of the organisation, said: “It was great, it was a fantastic festival and there was a great response.

“Everyone that I have spoken to has said it has been amazing.
