Acrobats, performers on stilts, and a slew of canapes all featured at last night's official opening of the Riverside Kingston development.

The £30m development has four new restaurants already open, with a fifth to be up and running in June.

The Canadian & Portland Estates-owned Riverside will also provide space for arts performances.

Kingston-born photography pioneer Eadweard Muybridge's work overlooked the crowd by Kingston Bridge.
