We’ve got an eggs-clusive for the upcoming Easter school holiday – a host of events and activities to keep children, families, and young people of all ages egg-cited!

Hatfield Town Centre

On Tuesday 9 April Hatfield’s White Lion Square will have a whole host of egg-citing activities for children of all ages to enjoy between 11am and 3pm. This includes Pump Traxx, face painting and the Booster Cushion Theatre (timings for which are between 2pm and 2.45pm).

Moneyhole Lane Park and King George V Playing Fields

Xplorer sessions take place on 3 April at King George V Playing Fields and at Moneyhole Lane Park and on 10 April – 11am-2pm. This free family navigational challenge is where children can explore the park with their maps to find the hidden markers. Just look out for the blue WelHat Sports Gazebo to collect your maps!

Campus West 

Children are in for a different kind of treat this holiday with the ‘Cartoon Circus Live’ show! It features Britain's funniest clowns, traditional slapstick comedy, illusions, the amazing girl in the spinning bottle, magic, a huge giant dancing bear, as well as puppets, prizes, and surprises – phew! Alternatively, young people can take advantage of the egg-stra Holiday Roller Skate Discos that run throughout the fortnight at RollerCity.
