Children and their parents piled into an unoccupied store in the High Street, which became the base for another adventure organised by Retail Revival and funded by Royston First.

Families were set the task of finding 12 toy instruments hidden in various shops across the town.

After a good old hunt, children were rewarded for their efforts with a music themed goodie bag.

Photographer Clive Porter said: “The treasure hunt and the craft activities provided the effects for an extra busy Saturday for the town centre.”

Meanwhile back at base, delighted children were encouraged to exercise their imagination by painting cardboard drums. They also got the chance to have glitter tattoos decorated on their wrists, with a musical theme attached.
