Easter fun at Cumbrian castle
Last updated at 11:21, Saturday, 19 April 2014
A Cumbrian castle is putting on a colourful and fun-packed programme of Easter activities this Bank Holiday weekend.
On Easter Monday, Muncaster Castle will hold a giant Easter egg hunt and there will also be a chance for children to take part in circus skills workshops.
Other entertainment will include walkabout tricks from award-winning magician Jay Rollins, whose entertainment incorporates magic, juggling skills, mind control and elements of cold reading.
Storyteller and theatre maker Ian Douglas will delight audiences with tales of Easter delivered in his unique style and there will also be a chance for adventurous children to try out a ride on a husky sled.
Muncaster Castle, with its 70 acres, is known for its stunning grounds so there will also be an array of floral displays including rhododendrons and bluebells.
Peter Frost-Pennington, whose family owns Muncaster, said: “There’s a real splash of colour and so much for people to see and do at the castle this Easter weekend.”
Muncaster Castle is believed to be one of the most haunted in the country and is open to be explored. As well as the castle and gardens there is also the World Owl Centre and the Meadow Vole Maze.
The Easter egg hunt will take place on Easter Monday at 12.30pm. People are urged to register free of charge in the Carriage House Gift Shop at Muncaster Castle before 12.15pm on the day.
