A choc-o-bloc programme of Easter family fun especially for the Easter holidays.  The Easter Bunny will be visiting every day, there’s an Easter Egg and Bunny Hunt with free chocolate treats for the kids, NEW Pig Racing and Goat Milking, family shows, adventure play, funfair rides, Tristan the Runaway Tractor and plenty of farmyard animals in our outdoor pens and our under cover animal barn.
