Family The Stick Man Easter Family Activities

About this event

Event info

Spring into the joys of Easter at the National Memorial Arboretum, where family-friendly activities await, all FREE of charge.

Inspired by Julia Donaldson's award-winning novel the Stick Man, families can embark on an exciting outdoor adventure trail, followed by an indoor screening of the animated children’s film.

Young visitors are invited to put their artistic skills to the test in creative arts and crafts drop-in sessions, making their very own Stick Man creations to take home. A music making workshop is also available for families to take part in, giving budding composers the chance to craft their own soundtrack to the story.

Picnic packs are available for parents to pick up from the Arboretum’s restaurant, and two outdoor play areas are available for the children to enjoy.

Visitors are advised to book parking and screening tickets in advance to guarantee entry.
