You’ll even win your very own Cadbury chocolate bunny to take home with you. The trail sheet costs £2 with each one getting a Cadbury chocolate prize. Running 10.30am - 4.30pm.

Join in with one of our Artrageous workshops

Challenge the family with an egg and spoon race or channel your inner creativity with a special Easter themed Artrageous egg decorating workshop. It costs £1.50 and you'll get everything you need to create your masterpiece.....including the boiled egg! At the end of the workshop the Easter Bunny will arrive to pick their favourite decorated egg for a prize. Running 1.30pm - 3.30pm. High five the Easter Bunny as they head off for a wander following the workshop (around 3.45pm). Grab a photo or wave from afar.

And don't forget......

There’s still all the usual goodies to have fun with and explore. From wheeling along paths on one of Beningbrough’s trikes or bikes to building a den or escaping to the wilderness play area. Grab one of the new explorer back-packs from the hall - these come with all the kit you might need for a themed adventure like hunting for bugs or going birdwatching. 

* The Easter weekend gets very busy and we often need to use the overflow parking. We recommend you arrive early. The parkland gates open from 9am and the farm shop opens not too long after that. You can get into the gardens from 10.30am if you want to beat the rush.
