Easter weekend 2019: things to see and do

The clocks are spinning forward, the weather is getting warmer (sort of) and the Easter weekend is fast approaching! It’s the perfect time to indulge in loads of hearty food, spend quality time with friends and family, and best of all enjoy the long weekend. Whether you want to host a party, burn off all that choccy, or simply relax, we’ve got lots of ideas making Easter 2019 even more fun.


Join an egg hunt


Let the games begin with Easter egg hunts. Visit one of 350 National Trust properties where you can join the national Cadbury Egg Hunt. Whether you’re searching for a chocolate treat in the local woodlands, or on a nature trail through beautiful countryside, you’ll have a day filled with adventures. Find the nearest park and head there now, before your neighbours find all the treats!


Host an afternoon tea party


Fancy a party? Then host one! You only need four essentials: tasty snacks, drinks, decorations and a few games to keep everyone engaged. For the most important part – food; get creative. Pair tasty dishes with exotic, unusual tea, and go for nibble plates full of flavour, texture and colour. Why not try Grabits Chicken on a Stick? It can be easily transformed into canapes, snack-size bites and paired with other nibbles including wraps and quiches. For decorations and games, check out Pinterest, which has lots of ideas for any themed party.


Go on an adventure


Whether it’s hopping on your bike, hitting favourite trails for the day or going for a quick walk, Easter is the perfect time to get outside. It can help you feel refreshed after feasting an all that chocolate. There are lots of cycling and walking routes available, and many of them are pet-friendly, so there’s no need to travel far to enjoy beautiful landscapes.


Spend a day at a fair


Local community events are great for finding out what’s on in your local area and connecting with new people. Take part in craft workshops, engage in storytelling seasons, listen to live entertainment, try some great food or take kids to get their faces painted in animal prints.


Make your own entertainment


If you want to take time out, then have fun at home. Get crafty with the kids, settle in and watch a film, bake your staple Easter cake, or simply enjoy a book in the comfort of your own bed – whatever works for you. Whichever way you choose to celebrate have a fun and egg-cellent Easter weekend!
