Easter Fun & Crafts

Weston Park, the magnificent stately home on the Shropshire \ Staffordshire border opens to the public for Easter fun from Saturday 12th April to Sunday 27th April promising plenty to do for all the family including Easter themed craft activities. Set in 1,000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland Weston is a woodland fantasy, adventure playground and stately home all rolled into one. The Woodland Adventure Playground has something to appeal to all ages with slides, zip wires, cargo nets and a climbing wall for older children and sand diggers for little ones to hone their skills digging in the sandpit. The Miniature Railway takes riders through Temple Wood on a journey through some of Capability Brown’s beautiful landscapes. On Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursdays during the Easter holidays Weston’s Education team will be running a series of craft activities where kids can get hands on making Easter bonnets, masks and decorating egg candles to take home. Sessions run from 11am in the Activity Room with places allocated on a first come, first served basis. Visitors to the House will also have the opportunity to see the newly re-decorated historic Drawing Room which contains some of the most important items in the collection including portraits by Sir Peter Lely and the famous stuffed parrot! The House, Park and Gardens will be open to the public from Saturday 12th to Sunday 27th April.  (The House is closed on Saturdays). Easter craft activities cost £1.50 per item in addition to standard admission. Admission to the Park and Gardens is: Adults £5.50, Children £3.50 and Seniors £5.00.
