1. Easter weekend at Blenheim

If you only do one thing over Easter, go to Blenheim: it is always a fantastic treat with an array of great activities.  If you go on Easter Sunday or Monday, both the Easter Bunny and Peter Rabbit will be in attendance. This year’s events include

  • An Easter egg hunt
  • Victoria fairground
  • Punch and Judy
  • Circus skills workshops
  • Craft activities


2. The Earth Trust, Little Wittenham

A little outside Oxford, but it’s worth the trip as there is a whole host of activities going on during the holidays, to suit all outdoors adventurers.

  • 21/22 and 28/29 March - Lambing weekends
  • 5 April - Easter bunny hunt.

There is also Clumps Club, Little Explorers, Discover and Play, Woodland Adventure and Family bushcraft day.  

3. Frozen Sing-a-long

If you can’t escape the strains of ‘Let it go’, then take your little Anna’s and Elsa’s down to the Phoenix Picture House on 28 March for a full sing-a-long experience.
