The first activity to kick start the 2017 season at Bowhill is its Hot Cross Bun Fun Run on Saturday, April 8. Earn a medal and work up an appetite for a chocolate egg or hot cross bun after completing a 5K or one mile course through the picturesque country surroundings.

Families can fully immerse themselves in the theme as Easter fancy dress is highly encouraged - all lambs, chicks and bunnies welcome.

Pre-registration is essential for the fun run which starts at 11am and costs £5 per person.

On Monday, April 10, families can enjoy a fresh and funny retelling of the traditional tale Jack and the Beanstalk.

The interactive show titled, Garlic Theatre: Jack and the Beans Talk, is packed with props to engage the senses and entertain all the family from the age of three.

Performance starts at 3pm, tickets £5.

Bowhill’s Easter Sunday Fun Day runs from 11am-4pm. All activities are inclusive of estate entry fee. Brand new this year are the trailer tours of the estate for visitors to see the spring buds and spot lambs and bunny rabbits up close, costing an additional £2.50 per person or £8 for a family of four.
