Eagle Radio was also broadcasting all the action live from the home where they were joined by special guest, mascot Eggbert the Eagle who proved very popular with the younger visitors.
As well as taking part in garden games and activities, guests had the chance to do a spot of shopping at the different stalls. There were also plenty of tasty treats on offer inspired by cuisines from around the world.
