Easter 2017 is rapidly hopping our way, folks, and if you’ve not found the perfect short-break vacay, then you’re going to need some egg-cellent ways to keep your little bunnies amused over the long Easter weekend. So once you’re done making those oh-so-cute Easter hats (try not to get too competitive, mums), you’ve visited a farm for an obligatory cuddle with a rabbit, and you’ve checked out all the blockbuster movies happening, we’ve come up with a basket-load of Easter activities, egg-hunts, and celebrations for a fun-packed weekend. Check back often, folks: we’ll be keeping our long bunny ears to the ground for new events and activities happening, and we’ll keep you in the loop!
A Peter Rabbit Tale
Go on a musical adventure with Peter Rabbit as his constant mischief-making leads to him hopping off into the big wide world rather than facing his mum when he gets into trouble. SRT’s The Little Company brings us A Peter Rabbit Tale, based on everyone’s favourite children’s classic by Beatrix Potter, and we caught the opening show last weekend. Read our review of A Peter Rabbit Tale before bouncing over to catch the show for yourselves.
