Another fantastic party-within-a-party is the Chocomania weekend, held over the Easter Long Weekend.

Feast on chocolate eggs in fields of brightly coloured flowers, head out to the awesome Easter Bunny Show (Alice has lost the Golden Keys and needs help from the kids! Plenty of singing, music and dance in this journey), go on an easter egg hunt (pre-bookings essential), or rock out to the live music: Cheek to Cheek bring jazz tunes, and Tracey Roberts brings the singer/songwriter piano tunes.

As on the family fun days, enjoy roving entertainment, giant garden games, maze, craft activities, delicious food trucks and stalls, animal petting zoo, face painting, tractor train ride, fairy garden, flower crown crafts with Emma Kate Creations, and garden displays
