Children’s TV star Mr Bloom attracted around 15,000 visitors to Falkirk’s Callendar Park at the weekend.

The Mr Bloom and Friends’ Big Day Out event was a free, family fun day, giving tots a chance to see Mr Bloom himself and other TV kids’ favourites like Rastamouse and Da Easy Crew.

Mr Bloom and ‘the Veggies’ performed a special 20-minute show, ‘When Julian Lost his Wiggle’, throughout the day, while Rastamouse, Scratchy and Zoomer got kids dancing to their tunes.

And there was plenty of fun-filled, healthly activities to keep little ones occupied at the event which took place in front of Callendar House.
