Easter holidays at Dudmaston

Spring has finally sprung and to celebrate we've got lots of fun things planned this Eastertime at Dudmaston.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt through daffodils

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

On Monday (4 April) and Wednesdays (30 March & 6 April) Bunny will be needing your help. His Easter egg has broken and all the pieces have been hidden throughout the orchard and garden at Dudmaston. Join us as we hunt for the missing pieces to help him put his egg back together again. You'll also have the chance to get crafty in the activities marquee. Trails cost £2.50 per child and there will be a small charge for the craft activity.

Enjoy the parklands in Spring

Stroll around the Estate as it reawakens for Spring. Spot the sunny patches of daffodils that have emerged in the garden, or head down into the Dingle for a refreshing walk. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Lend a hand

Want to work off those chocolate easter eggs? Then help us do a bit of gardening. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1.00-3.00pm during the local school holidays help our Ranger team plant spring bulbs down in the Dingle and on the Dam. All equipment and bulbs will be supplied, just turn up with gardening gloves and a bit of digging determination.
