A JESTER and wizard conjured up balloon animals, tricks and illusions during a Spring Fun event in Prestatyn. 

Erwyd Le Fol, the Conwy Jester and Jay Gatling entertained shoppers and visitors with their street performances. The two-day event, which ran last Thursday and Friday, also featured a high street treasure hunt. Crafts and activities were held in Artisans Collective at the Old Library.

Spring Fun was the first event organised by new events coordinator at Prestatyn Town Council, Kimberley Edmunds.

Kimberley said: “Everyone had an extremely fun filled time. People travelled from outside the area as well as coming from within the town due to the fact that the event took place towards the end of the school holiday rather than the main Easter weekend when there is a lot of competition for activities to get involved with.

“It was lovely seeing families working together to solve the treasure hunt and seeing the joy on the faces when they solved the clues to create a word and win their prizes.

“The street shows and walkabout entertainment provided by Erywd Le Fol and Jay Gatling was hugely successful. Many families returned for the second day of the event just to see them perform again.”

She added: “We would like to say a huge thank to Pete Harrison and Steve Fenner at Artisans Collective and Mike, Freddie and Sian – the fabulous volunteers.”
