We had a cracking day when families from across the region joined us to celebrate Easter at our Easter Eggstravaganza Family event.

Children from as young as two, up to twelve, had a fun-packed time and also got the chance to meet the Easter Bunny during the exciting day of activities.

Our chapel was the place to be for the obligatory egg decorating competition, and we received some fantastic entries from all age groups. We were delighted to award 11-year-old Gabriella as the winner with her fantastic peacock egg creation.

There were also seven different craft stations for the little ones (and, let’s be honest some parents too) to join in with, including paper plate decorating, Easter card making and build a bunny.

After a tasty barbecue lunch, the afternoon started with an Easter canvas making workshop run by Jayne Stafford from The Creation Station. There were many different designs with some parents helping little ones to use their painted hands and feet to create some fantastic images.

Face-painting was also on offer throughout the day and most children sported fun quirky designs thanks to Sue Parker at Painted Face.

Our young guests then got the chance to take part in a woodland egg hunt in our beautiful scenic grounds. They were joined by parents who helped them to work out the clues, hidden within eggs. Children had 6 coloured plastic eggs to collect, before returning them to the Easter bunny to receive a novelty chocolate egg.

Lynn Sanderson, Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager, said it was a great day.
She said: “The sun was shining, and we had a lovely time. There were lots going on and parents said they really enjoyed being here at the Hall because there was so much for their children to enjoy in a beautiful setting. This is our first family event this year at the Hall, and we are looking forward to our next event during the summer holidays.”
