Another school holiday, another great line up of things to do with the children in and around Norwich.
With Easter comes eggs and lots of Easter egg hunts in a variety of guises. You can search for dragon’s eggs at Dragon Hall in Norwich. You’ll need to make a helmet, sword and buckler and learn sword skills with the help of a professional knight first though before you can tackle the challenges in the labyrinth of Dragon Hall. (23rd April 2011)
At BeWILDerwood join in Swampy’s Steady Spoon Dash, if you complete the dash across the course with your egg and spoon you win an eggy prize. There’s also a WILD egg hunt with eggs to find, hidden by the BeWILDerbats. Or you can get creative and decorate Easter egg cards. (April 16th-25th )
The majestic Blickling Hall is holding Easter fun days with chicks, bunnies, eggs and trails. (22-25th April). Or for something really different you could try an Easter egg canoe trail. Canoe the broads with The Canoe Man and see how many hidden eggs you can find. (24th April River Bure)
Once you’ve tired of chocolate you could try something more energetic. Whitlingham Broad has a Spring Family Adventure Day on 17th April and a whole host of water-based activity courses (sailing, windsurfing, kayaking) for youngsters throughout the holidays. Or you could try ‘tubing’ at the Norfolk Snowsports Club – slip and slide down the ski slopes in giant inflated rubber rings! (www.norfolkskiclub.co.uk)
Chapelfield Gardens in Norwich is hosting its annual Easter Fun Fair from 22-25th April and on the same dates the city centre will play host to a speciality market with over 30 stalls selling authentic produce from a range of countries.
Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum is also hosting its popular annual fair where you can celebrate the onset of spring with music, crafts, fairground rides, hands-on activities and the popular grand Gressenhall hat parade. (25th April)
On stage at the Theatre Royal in Norwich is The Gruffalo’s Child a great stage adaptation of the popular story book offering songs, laughter and scary fun for children aged 4+. (23rd–24th April)
At the Norwich Puppet Theatre you can get creative or watch the creativity on stage with a great choice of puppet making workshops and stage productions. Make your own monsters, princesses, dragons and scarecrows or watch puppets in action in Peter and the Wolf, Little Red Robin Hood or the Punch and Judy Magic Show.
Have a very Happy Easter…
