We can’t help have a spring in our step now the days are longer and the weather is milder! What plans have you got for the long Easter weekend?

If you’re still looking for something to do, either with or without the kids, have a look at these ideas to make the most of wonderful Wakefield over the long weekend.

Easter Explorer Backpacks at The Hepworth
When? Saturday 19th March – Saturday 4th April
Are you wondering how you’re going to keep your little ones entertained this Easter? Why not head to The Hepworth where they’ll be able to pick up an Easter explorer backpack from the picnic area and put on their best spy impression for the day! They’ll be kitted out with all the investigator tools they’ll need and you’ll be able to explore the gallery while they follow the spy trail.
Suitable for ages 5-12 years.

Fossil Frenzy at NCMME
When? Monday 21st March – Friday 8th April
If you’re looking for something other than the usual picnic-in-the-park or playground adventure, then head to the National Coal Mining Museum this Easter and give your children a taste of local history over the past 300 million years! They’ll be able to create their very own fossil impression to take home (it beats egg decorating!). Book ahead and you could even find yourselves exploring the underground world of coal mining…

Live music at The Hop Wakefield
When? Friday and Saturday nights
Get your fix of live music at The Hop in Wakefield. Head down on Friday and Saturday nights for live cover bands who perform hits from across the decades – everything from blues and soul to funk and pop!
Coming up on Friday 25th March is cover band ‘Blade’ to get you in the mood for the long weekend!
