An Easter Egg Hunt, full of egg-citement comes to Blake House Craft Centre this holiday time. From Good Friday to Easter Monday (14th - 17th April) we are celebrating with Easter fun for the kids.

The Craft Centre will be open from 10am until 4pm with activities and crafts the kids will love, including face painting, bouncy castle, rides and egg decorating. The Easter bunny herself will be joining us over the weekend and looking forward to meeting all the children. You can make your own bunny mask, decorate an egg, then of course join in our Easter egg hunt around the craft centre! There will be various stalls, including a charity raffle to win a scrumptious Thornton’s chocolate egg, with all proceeds raised going towards the life saving work of the Essex Air Ambulance.

On Good Friday and Easter Saturday, there will be a petting zoo, where children are invited to come and meet the animals, whilst on Sunday and Monday, you can meet the adorable rare breed piglets!

All of our exclusive shops will be open and full of Easter gifts and inspiration as well as the restaurant offering a welcome cup of coffee or tasty lunch. Parking and entry to the centre is free, with activities costing from just £2, so for all round family fun this coming Easter Holiday, make sure you visit Blake House Craft Centre.

In addition to this special weekend, over the Easter holidays, Circling the Sun have a fabulous range of kids workshops going on from drumming to fairy gardens and on 14th & 15th at 9am, Timbers Restaurant are offering the chance to enjoy a delicious breakfast with the Easter Bunny! Find out more and get booked in quickly to avoid disappointment.
