With the school Easter holidays fast approaching, Normanby Hall Country Park have revealed their packed Easter programme, with events sure to keep the whole family entertained.
This year, Beatrix Potter’s beloved Peter Rabbit is taking centre stage for many of the events.
Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member responsible for Normanby Hall said, “The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the first book delivered to children in North Lincolnshire as part of our Imagination Library programme, so what better way to celebrate this than having this beloved bunny take over our Easter activity programme at Normanby Hall Country Park.”
From 30 March to 15 April, rabbits, lambs, goats and a calf will be calling the park home for our Easter Petting Farm. Families can see the baby animals in the Stableyard and each day there will be chick handling and lamb feeding sessions.
Visitors are also invited to join us for free storytelling sessions of Beatrix Potter’s classic stories – The Tale of Peter Rabbit and The Tale of Benjamin Bunny – near the Rabbit family’s cosy burrow in the Walled Garden.
Eager treasure hunters will also want to take part in the free Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter Bunny has hidden wooden eggs around the grounds; see how many you can find.
Other exciting activities include a screening of the Royal Ballet performance of Tales of Beatrix Potter, a Peter Rabbit-themed afternoon tea, and even veggie beats music making sessions, perfect for music loving children.
Some activities will incur a small charge to cover costs and advance booking for these is essential.
Cllr Carl Sherwood continued:
“There will be so many activities to keep children – and their grown-ups – entertained at the Hall this Easter, so be sure to come along and join in the fun. Our activities at Normanby Hall always prove to be very popular, so I’d recommend booking early to avoid disappointment!”
This is just a flavour of the packed programme of events taking place at Normanby Hall Country Park over Easter. You can see the full list events by visiting the Normanby Hall website.
