Hop on down to Guildhall Square this April as we present a fun family day out that is full of activities with the return of our Spring Easter Family Fun Day!

On Wednesday, 11 April from 11am, bring your family and friends for a great day out! We'll be filling the square with some really cool children's rides* and attractions. Look super-awesome and dazzle your friends by having your face painted. Sit back and enjoy some funny cartoons on the Big Screen and why not enjoy some gardening activities for you to take home. Not only that, we'll also be offering a kids Easter hunt, right in the square!
