Easter events for children.


Easter egg hunts at National Trust properties Barrington Court, Lytes Cary & Montacute House take place over the four days of the bank holiday weekend, Friday 14 until Monday 17 April 11am - 4pm.


Hunt for eggs in the orchards at Barrington Court or discover a chocolate bunny in the grounds at Montacute House or Lytes Cary Manor estate.


The Easter bunny really needs your help, so hop through the grass, look behind the trees and shrubs, solve the clues as you make your way around and find your own chocolate prize at the end.



Everyone will be rewarded with a delicious chocolate treat at the end of each completed hunt. And every time you head out on a National Trust Egg Hunt, you’ll help fund vital conservation work to protect special places for future generations to explore.

Hauser & Wirth Somerset welcomes children’s art charity The House of Fairy Tales bask to Durslade Farm for another interactive adventure for all the family.


Playing in and around the current exhibitions ‘Elisabeth Frink Transformation’ and ‘Djordje Ozbolt A Brave New World’ The House of Fairy Tales and their cast of characters invite visitors on a brand new adventure, leading to surreal, befuddling and brilliant flights of imagination all about Spring – Planet Earth’s most buoyant and mysterious season.




Rumbling up from underground this Spring are the Swevenaughts – dream recyclers. They travel far and wide to find leftover bits of dreams so that they can feed them into their amazing machine: the Oneiric Re-combombulator, and use them to build their faraway, underground Dreaming City… but something is going wrong – the dream seasons are getting all muddled up. They only have two days to fill their machine with dreams of Spring, and save the Dreaming City! Carefully tuned radars and introspectrosopes tell them that this is just the right place to come. But dreams are tricky things and Spring dreams, doubly so – they are going to need help!


Join the House of Fairy Tales for two days of colourful investigation, live characters, puppetry, game-playing, story-seeking, and music.


This is a free event and booking is not essential, just simply turn up and enjoy the adventure. Children should be accompanied by adults at all times.


The Roth Bar & Grill will be serving refreshments throughout the afternoon.



FRI 14 – SAT 15 APR 2017, 11 AM – 4 PM
