Hundreds of cheering fans gathered in Victoria Square to celebrate the achievements of the athletes who competed.
The event followed the official handover of the baton from the Gold Coast to Birmingham, which will host the Games in 2022.
Jade, Kadeen, Natalie and Beth took to the stage to talk about their historic gold medal-winning moment against the Australian Diamonds and also said they hoped their performances had inspired people across the country to give netball a go.
England Netball were running a stand during the event with the opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to have a go at shooting and recreating that famous Helen Housby moment.
Lots of people stopped by to find out some more information about when and where they could take to the court and picked up some top shooting tips from the coaches on site.
