Parkour - The Parkour Generation Team will be running workshops throughout the day to coach all ages and abilities in this stunning and exhilarating sport.

Graffiti art - James Mayle of Image Skool will bring to life spray paint mural and canvas work in a fascinating graffiti workshop.

l The Belton horse trials runs from April 1 to 3 and this year is on the theme of Food, Fashion and Family.

Food will be the focus of the Friday, with demonstrations from local chefs planned throughout the day.

Organiser Stuart Buntine said: “We thought this a great opportunity to promote local chefs, their hotels or restaurants and the local produce.
