There will be some ‘eggstra special events on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, with Fairy Enchantica, The ‘Egg’cellent Magic Hatter and the Easter Bunny.

Amy Thornton, General Manager at Stockeld Park says: “We’re very excited about our first Easter adventure filled with ‘egg’stra special events. It should be an Easter to remember with it being our first ever time opening and with such amazing events in store. I personally cannot wait to get on the Easter catwalk sporting my very own home made bonnet. After having focused mainly on the Halloween and Christmas adventures in the past it’s fantastic to have something else on the calendar with such potential.”

With a strong emphasis on providing visitors with an Adventure, Stockeld Park blends outdoor activity pursuits with original sights, sounds and sculpture – all based in one of Yorkshire’s most ancient woodland locations, a real hidden Gem.

Here’s a guide to what’s on at Stockeld Park during our first Easter Adventure.

Giant Egg Hunt – Throughout the whole of the Easter Adventure you can take park in the giant unique egg hunt around the Enchanted Forest with prizes up for grabs. Activity sheets will be given out upon arrival at the ticket office to be completed and returned to the shop for your chance to win a giant Chocolate Easter egg. The prize draw will be done on Easter Sunday... Don’t miss out on the chance for over indulgence on the perfect day for chocolate!
