Forty Hall Easter Events
Over the Easter weekend we did not one, but Easter events at Forty Hall, our local stately home.
Mad Hatter’s Arty Party
The Mad Hatter’s Arty Party was the first event. Run by the Funky Festival Company, this was an Alice in Wonderland inspired hour of crafting (just look at the cute Alice tea cup Seren made) ….
… followed by bonkers games led by the White Rabbit and Mad Hatter in fabulous costumes!
All finished off with juice and a biscuit.
This was for Seren & I only as we though Imogen was a bit young. Though she hung out with Andy at the nearby play area and joined us for the last 5 minutes and met the characters.
She was obsessed with this prop of Alice, half fallen down the rabbit hole.
We’ve been to a few events run by this team and the attention to detail regarding props, costumes, crafts and activities is fantastic. They are super friendly and fun too.
The annual Away With The Faeries weekend is their next event, happening at Enfield Town Park.
Forty Hall Easter Egg Trail
An Easter trail around Forty Hall – house and gardens – was next. Both girls could participate in this. We were given a map to follow which told us where to find hunt clues and each clue was a letter to spell out a 17th century sweet marzipan treat (Marchpane).
It was fun to go round the house and see how it had changed since our last visit and read some educational bits about Easter. It was also cool to watch Seren read the letters and write them down unaided for the first time!
We finished in the garden, after a bit of help!
A Creme Egg was our reward! The trail was not only fun, but only cost £1 and there were timed tickets all weekend which meant there wasn’t tons of people doing it at the same time as us.
I would recommend the trail for next year if they run it again!
Did you head out to any events over the Easter weekend? I hope you have come down from the Easter chocolate high!
