Easter Eggstravaganza

6 Apr 2019 - 22 Apr 2019

Easter holidays – family event

This is an ideal time to visit Pensthorpe, during the school holidays, where you can follow an eggciting Easter egg treasure hunt around the reserve and get stuck into our Easter-themed craft activity. 

Each day we will also be hiding ONE golden egg which, in order to find, you will need to work together as a family to hunt it out. Whoever finds the egg and brings it back to our shop will have the chance to win an eggclusive prize!  The golden egg will be hidden in a different top-secret location every day. 

So, with Spring in the air, what better time to hop over and see us!
