Visitors of all ages have been flocking to the Eden Project to take part in a sports day themed around family favourite Shaun the Sheep.

Championsheeps Live! features a range of hilarious activities including Shirley sheep space hopper races, cabbage football keepy-uppy, a farmyard assault course and a naughty pigs sack race.

It was launched at Eden earlier this month by Shaun's Oscar-winning creator Nick Park, director of Aardman Animations.

There are also Get Fit with the Flock sessions where hundreds of visitors can join in hula hooping, aerobics and line dancing.

Emma Hogg, Eden's programme producer, said: "Championsheeps is a great fit for Eden as it encourages families to play and communicate together in a vibrant and exciting environment. It's been a real hit with our visitors."

Championsheeps Live! is staged at Eden until May 2 and is included in the price of admission.

It is produced by SGA Productions Ltd in association with Aardman Animations.
