The annual event, organised by the Friends of Archbishop's Park, this year included a dog show in aid of the Guide Dogs charity.

Rabbits, ducklings and chickens from Vauxhall City Farm proved to be a popular attraction.

The event also served as a preview of The Tyger Cafe – a new permanent food and drink outlet soon to be established in the park.
