The event sees more than 200 members of the club participate showcasing what they have learnt in their training sessions.

The gymnasts range between 18 months and 14 years old and they have been preparing for the show in their classes since before Christmas.

Groups perform routines including dance and gymnastics to music.

The show lasts around two and a half hours and packs in a full crowd on the night.

Although the event is primarily to show family and friends what the gymnasts have been learning, it is also used as a fundraising event.

In previous years, the club, which is also a registered charity, has been able to buy equipment with the money raised.

Two years ago they managed to pull in more than £4,000 to help buy them start building funds for a larger facility.

The event took place over the weekend of February 2.
