Hundreds of people flocked to St Ives for a playtime through history event hosted at the town’s corn exchange.
More than 300 people attended the event, held on April 11, which gave visitors an insight into the sort of fun and games people enjoyed from the medieval period right through to the modern day.
The event was organised by the Norris Museum.
Hannah Vandrage, learning support officer at the museum, said: “It was a lovely day. We had a great turnout and there were lots of very happy and enthusiastic children playing with toys from the medieval times through the 1980s.
“We also had some fantastic re-enactors who taught us all how to dance and everyone got involved.”
