HUNDREDS of people visited events ran by The Dock Museum and The Forum in Barrow.

On Thursday Professor Pumpernickel performed his 30-minute show that involves science experiments from the materials in his cart at the museum.

The Dock Museum described him as: "If you like fire, explosions, loads of mess and mind-bending magic you'll love Pumpernickel."

He performed in the round with kids and adults enjoying his show in the sunshine. 

Afterwards, a violinist from Lake District Summer Music played in front of the Clyde Hopkins Exhibition.
