We've got plenty of events to suit the whole family happening over the Easter holidays.

To kickstart the holidays, follow clues to win a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat on a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt over the Easter weekend. Full details here.

Have a go at outdoor games and mini-sports activities for free on a Souter sports day. Try your hand at archery, badminton, orienteering, rounders, tennis or volleyball. Staff and volunteers will be happy to help if you want to improve your skills or pick up some tips. Click here for the full story.

On 4 and 5 April we're taking a time machine back to World War One - the home front. We'll be exploring what the war meant for those left behind on South Tyneside. Pick up an activity pack and meet a cast of wartime characters. You'll find all the details here.

Join a ranger to get hands-on with watery wildlife on our first Seashore Safari of the year. Rummage in rockpools to find some of the fascinating creatures that live there. Crabs, anemones or starfish - what will you discover? Find out more here.

If you visit on a day when no events are scheduled, you can grab a self-led family activity pack from the front desk. We'll provide everything you need for rock pooling (depending on the tides), bird watching, pond dipping and bug hunting.
