My Easter Top Ten (ish)

So the Easter school holidays are very nearly here, mostly I like to wing it as to what we do and where we go, but with two boys aged 7 and 11 to sort out I have to get my stuff together just a little bit, so here is what we will be doing at some point.  I admit, it’s boy heavy, so I need some things that may or may not be more appealing to the girls!

1. Crocky Trail – @crockyT – outdoor adventure playground

2. Dunham Massey – @dunhammasseyNT – back to WW1 Stamford Military Hospital

3. Muppet Movie – OK Kermie? – nationwide showings

4. Warrington Museum – @warringtonmus – Cabinet of Curiosities.  Curious?

5. Oulton Park – @oulton_park  – 19th & 21st April – British GT Championship

6. Sandbach Trasnport Festival – 26th & 27th April – FREE ADMISSION –

7. Severn Sisters Ice Cream Farm – @poshicecream – THE best ice cream in Cheshire, no other reason needed

8. Blakemere Village – @visitblakermere – lots to do, see, shop & eat

9. The White Horse at Chester Racecourse – @TheWhiteHorseCR – great gastro pub, excellent staff & adventure playground. Tick, tick and tick.

Something quite wonderful is happening in the Whirligig Woods…

Run riot and rough it in style, play wild and feast like kings. Abandon all other plans, cancel swimming club, ditch domestic life and run for the woods! Wild Rumpus has teamed up with fresh air adventurers Canopy to create this boutique, theatrical getaway unlike any other.

 Throughout the course of the weekend you will become part of an intriguing adventure, witness exclusive performances and engage in a myriad of activities. Leave reality at the forest edge and prepare to expect the unexpected. At Feast of the Farewells anything is possible: shadow puppets come to life amongst the trees and the forest transforms before your very eyes. There will be den building, epic treasure hunts for the bold hearted and stories that come in all shapes and sizes. The weekend will culminate in a dramatic, all singing, all dancing raucous feast.

Out-door mayhem, stories and family time are what we do best. So whisk your loved ones up and away to the Whirligig Woods for an unforgettable weekend in our storybook accommodation. Cosy warm beds and hot home cooked meals mean all you have to remember to bring is yourself, your family and your sense of adventure!
