30th Mar to 2nd Apr
Easter is just around the corner and here at The Rare Breeds Centre we are preparing for all the usual Easter fun and frolics.
Our friendly Easter bunny will be here to say ‘hello’ and help you find the clues on the choccy bunny hunt and when you have finished she will reward you with a special Easter chocolate. This is great fun for grown-ups, too! Later on join the Easter Bunny for some fun activities in the Main Arena at 11.30 am and 1.30 pm.
Wiley Wolf productions will be here again, performing ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, our Easter panto’, in the big barn next to soft play. Poor Goldilocks…what an adventure she has. Oh! Yes she does! Performances are at 12 noon and 2 pm.
We start our lambing season just before the Easter weekend, so pop along and see all our cute babies and their mums in The Lambing Tunnel. You may be lucky enough to see a lamb being born and there could be a ‘sock’ lamb to help feed. There will be more Spring babies to meet in our ‘Meet the Animals’ sessions in The Children’s Barn (10.30 am – 4 pm) and around the farm, too.
At 11 am and 1 pm - are you brave enough to join in with pig washing? Be sure to bring suitable clothing…the pigs love it and everyone gets very wet, but it’s great fun!
And there’s more! Easter sees the start of our famous Pig Racing which takes place every day at 3.15 pm on the main paddock….. it’s hilarious and you may be picked to run with the pigs.
There’s so much more to do, including, the Creepy Crawlie’s Room, Falconry displays at 2.30pm, trailer rides from 10.30 am – 4 pm and exciting outdoor and indoor play areas. Take a walk through our beautiful woodland and see if you can spot the wonderful wildlife up to the Secret Lake ….why not take a picnic or you can eat yummy food at very reasonable prices in The Granary restaurant and other catering outlets on the farm.
There will also be a face painter here and for a small extra charge you too could be an Easter Bunny.
