LAST weekend hundreds of children met their idols, Captain Barnacles and Kwazii, from the Octonauts at the Parade in the town centre.

Both Captain Barnacles and Kwazii spent time meeting their young fans and having their photos taken. Many of the children had brought their Octonauts toys with them and some even dressed up as a Octonaut for the occasion.

Brian Morris, Centre Manager said: “It was great to see so many children and parents enjoying themselves at the Parade, many couldn’t believe the Octonauts were in Swindon.
