Easter at Castle Ward

Easter activities at Castle Ward

Get wild about nature this Easter at Castle Ward with our larger than life nature trail, and crafts in the theatre.

From Monday 15 April to Sunday 28, discover the sights and sounds of nature at Castle Ward. Follow the trail to explore the estate, make some wild music and see if you can spot the creature that lives in the giant nests we've spotted!

The Theatre will be open daily from 12noon to 4pm for crafts and rainy-day shelter.

The Great Castle Ward Easter Egg Swap

Roll up, roll up! From Friday 19 - Tuesday 23 April our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts will be running daily from 12noon to 4pm. This year you'll need to keep a hold of your egg while you follow the trail through the estate, with lots to keep you busy on the way. If you keep hold of your egg, you might even be able to swap it at the end for a tasty chocolate version. Hunts cost £1.50 per child.

Easter Sunday, Monday and Tuesday

The Armagh Rhymers will be leading the Easter celebrations for three days with stories, songs and dancing - join them to decorate the Maypole. See cuddly bunnies from Phil’s farm, enjoy music in the Stableyard and find out which member of your family is the champion egg-roller.
