We have a cracking line-up of activities for the whole family to get involved with including a Hetty the Hen treasure hunt around The Garden Centre and Growing Nursery, live readings of Hetty the Hen Who Couldn't Lay from author Sarah Igo, live illustrations from artist Rebecca Williamson as well as an Easter Colouring Competition plus much more.

Come along to our heated marquee and listen to Sarah Igo bring Hetty the Hen to life with a live reading of her debut book Hetty the Hen Who Couldn’t Lay at 10.00am or 2.00pm. Artist Rebecca Williamson, who illustrated the book will also be in the marquee demonstrating some live illustrations. Additionally, a station will also be set up in the marquee for little ones to create their own Hetty the Hen character before or after the reading.
