This article was created for our Easter 2019 activities and has now finished. It's almost here, a weekend of exploring the outdoors, nature quests and a delicious chocolatey prize as we team up with Cadbury over the Easter bank holiday.

The carpet of daffodils and bluebells surrounding Smallhythe Place are a colourful backdrop to our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts taking place across the Easter weekend. On your quest around the garden discover spring bulbs surfacing by the ponds and the pale pink and white apple blossom sprinkling the orchard floors.

Family Theatre - Friday 12 April

Over the Easter holidays join us for some family theatre at 1pm, as we explore the story of Snow White and Rose Red – sisters, twins, best friends – who have lived in the forest since they were Babes in the Wood.  When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear a new chapter begins.  But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows?  Why is there sadness in his eyes?  And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping in to? All questions will be answered by Professor of Gnomology - Andromedus Silverbeard -  using puppets, storytelling, and original music. A new show from Theatre of Widdershins. Suitable for ages 4 and up. 

Book your tickets here and unravel the mystery.
