Please visit the Hornsea Freeport website for further information.

  1. The Easter Bunny at Southwood Garden Centre

This charming garden centre is a good place to start when you’re thinking about revamping your backyard for spring.

Meanwhile, children can enjoy exciting activities across the Easter break.

Hunt for bunnies and prizes and enter their colouring competition to be in with a chance of winning a giant chocolate egg.

  1. Music with Mummy Hedon Easter Special

These relaxing sessions are perfect for anyone who has a little one under the age of four. It’s a chance to explore the world of music with your baby.

On Friday there’s an Easter parade special, where all are welcome. Themed games, activities and refreshments will be put on at Alexandra Hall.

Until Sunday 23 April there will be a Turtle Trail, where children can find egg-shaped clues around the aquarium. The winner will receive a turtle adoption pack.

On top of this, join in with crafts and touch pool sessions, watch films and feed the penguins.
