Fairytale Farm's unique Easter event is back for 2023, and they have loads of new attractions for visitors to see throughout the Easter holidays.

Farm owner, Nick Laister, says: "As always we have lots going on over Easter, with some changes for 2023. We have various activities running right through the entire Easter holidays (1st to 16th April 2023). See our beautiful new interactive Easter display for 2023, where Mother Goose has been joined by some friends for an egg hunt. Join Ribberty Rabbit Crafting in our Craft Corner and get creative with a selection of Easter-themed crafts. Join in the Easter Garden Games trying to complete the obstacle course with Bunny Hop sacks, Bean Bag Tossing and Easter Egg and Spoon racing. And we have an Easter Scavenger Hunt; the Easter Bunny has hidden several Easter-related items around the trail for you to find."

In addition to this, there is a chance for children and adults to pet the Farm's adorable animals (you won't want to put them down!).

And for the Easter Weekend itself (Good Friday 7th April to Easter Monday 10th April 2023), there are additional activities, as Nick explains: "Over the Easter Weekend, visitors are invited to join the Easter Bunny in Bunny Hollow within the Giant Rabbit Burrow to hear an Easter tale, and every child will receive a full size Easter egg."

There is no charge for adults, but due to the size of the Burrow it is limited to one adult per family group.

Nick is also excited to announce the return of Breakfast with the Easter Bunny: "We first launched Breakfast with the Easter Bunny in 2022 and it proved very popular, so we are doing it again with some changes. Last year the breakfast was a bap. This year it is a full cooked breakfast. And while you have your breakfast there is a chance to meet the Easter Bunny and listen to his Easter story. And every child will receive a full-size Easter egg."

"Breakfast with the Easter Bunny is expected to be very popular and there are only 48 places per day, so book early to make sure you are guaranteed a place at the breakfast table."

Other new attractions at Fairytale Farm include the Musical House, a new covered picnic area, new theming for our indoor play area and new dinosaurs in Dino Valley.
