Free Easter Fun at The Meadows!

At The Meadows there will be loads of fantastic FREE events on this Easter for the whole family to enjoy!

Visit our GIANT inflatable egg in the mall. Not only will it look amazing, but inside we’ll have story time for the little ones from books such as The Gruffalo and the Hungry Caterpillar, as well as giving out tasty chocolate treats!

Story telling will take place regularly during these times, so not to worry if you miss one slot, there will be plenty of other ones to join in with.

Local author Sibel Beadle will be doing special guest readings from her new book ‘Witchy Tales 2’, and hosting a competition for children to design their own fictional story book character too.

The fun doesn’t stop there, as to welcome the start of Spring we’ll have a small petting farm brought in to The Meadows where you can meet baby lambs, stroke chicks and cuddle little bunnies inside our mini indoor petting farm.

Please note that a petting farm within the Meadows means that there will be some live animals on the site from 7th to 9th April, as detailed above. While this is exciting and fun for many, we appreciate that if you are allergic, pregnant, visiting with a newborn or of a nervous disposition, you may wish to take extra care and thought around being close to farm animals during this period.
