Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt & Easter adventures at Sudbury Hall

paper frog craft activity

This Easter it's all about nature as the garden here at Sudbury springs back to life! From our Spring trail in the gardens over the whole Easter holiday, to nature themed crafts and of course the ever popular Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt over the Easter weekend.

Children can let their imaginations run wild during the Easter holidays on one of our outdoor trails or in a drop in craft session. There's plenty of opportunity to burn off some spring energy in the outdoor play area too. The Hall will be looking very different to last year to as we begin to tell the untold stories of some of Sudbury's women with the help of Derby college.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt - Who eats what?

We all know what we eat, but have you ever stopped to think what the animals you see living in your garden eat? From the tiny insects hiding in the plants to the squirrels in the trees, follow the clues and learn more about the animals around us. The Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt will only run over the Easter weekend and there's no need to book, just come along and join in - each hunt costs £2.00 and each child will recieve a chocolatey Cadbury prize.

Easter crafts and activities

We've got all sorts planned outside of the Easter weekend to keep you busy throughout the school holidays. Come and see us in the Museum meeting room to make your own hopping frog, just like the ones we see along the edges of the lake.

Get those green fingers in action and practise your gardening skills by making your own rabbit planter and plant a lettuce! Why not head into the museum and see if you can find Betty Cadbury's rabbit and lettuce mechanical toy, the inspiration for the craft workshop!


Spring flowers and a slice of cake

Add a splash of colour to your garden with some potted spring favourites, lovingly put together by our local suppliers. You'll find them for sale just outside the gift shop along with all sorts of other seaonal goods. Our tea room will of course be open to keep you fuelled up for your adventures from hearty lunches to light bites and of course, cake!
