Easter is celebrated every year by young infants to the older generations, but what families will want to know is what kind of events will be taking place over the easter break.

From afternoon tea to Easter egg hunts and face painting, there’s plenty of exciting activities for you and the family to take part in.

  1. Chatsworth House

The Stately home is providing a varied choice of activities throughout the Easter period from Saturday March 28th to Sunday April 19th. Children can choose from an easter trail, face painting workshops, craft sessions and various Easter egg hunts.

The best thing about the Chatsworth activities is that many of the events are included in the admission price so you won’t have to pay extra!

After the Easter fun, why not go on a walk around the gardens and embrace the nature?!

2. Horsley Lodge 

The Lodge is advertising its family afternoon tea on Sunday April 12th at a price of £12 per child and £16 per adult. The Easter bunny is also paying a visit to the children to wish them a great Easter as well as bringing chocolate – of course!

To reserve a place, call 01332 780 832.

3. Kedleston Hall 

Is there anything better than chocolate? No? Exactly!

So why not take the family to Kedleston Hall for its Cadbury Easter egg hunt on Monday April 13th? Entry is £2.50 and the event is suitable for all ages. Dogs on leads are also welcome but as it is an outdoor activity be prepared to get muddy! There are four dates to choose from and more information can be found here.

Since Kedleston Hall is a National Trust hot spot in Derbyshire, why not go on a walk round the grounds after the egg hunt.

Markeaton Park 

On April 4th the park is offering a free Easter egg hunt trail. There are six eggs hidden around the park and to find these you will need the worksheet from the Mundy Play Centre Kiosk! After completing the worksheet, you will be put into a prize draw to win Mundy Play Centre vouchers.

5. Easter in Wonderland

Bluebell Dairy is hosting Easter in Wonderland between Saturday April 4th – 13th. Activities range from bottle feeding lambs (aw!) to the White Rabbit Easter Egg Hunt. The sessions last from 9.30am – 5pm so you can, for sure, make a good day out of the Alice in Wonderland inspired activities!

6. Pickford House

On Tuesday April 7th the museum is holding a craft session for children to make a beautiful basket ready for Easter. This is a drop in session and is suitable for families with children aged 5-12 years. Admission is free so why not come along and experience this unique and exciting workshop.
