This year, the two weeks of glorious Easter fun are from Saturday 1st April – Monday 17th April. For kids, it’s bliss. For adults, it’s ‘oh dear, what on earth are we going to do with them?’. Never fear! We’ve put together a big old bumper list of fun for all, for the weans, the grannies, and everyone in between. Enjoy!

It’s not the school holidays until mum and dad have been thoroughly shown up by their kids’ skills at an obscure sport. Get yourself along for a roller disco which may or may not feature the Easter bunny on skates. If that’s not worth a visit then I don’t know what is!
