There was also a Harry Potter look-a-like and appearances from Game of Thrones actress Elizabeth Webster and Emmerdale star Bhasker Patel.

Amber Valley Mayor and Mayoress Councillors Richard and Susan Iliffe also attended to meet local heroes from Derbyshire, who had been nominated for their dedication to local causes or helping family members.

Marketing manager Amanda Blair, said: “The event was packed full of family activities each day and it was the last week of the season, so it was great that so many people visited before we close for the winter.”
