EVENTS AT PICKHAMS: Following on from the success of Summer Trifle, the mini arts festival in the gardens, we have decided to have some other events at Pickhams (Wilmington). In April we are planning a special Easter Family Weekend on Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday (April 21 and 22). There will be something quite different to the scramble for chocolate eggs, a Reverse Egg Hunt. Following the clues, search the gardens for the hidden nests and place beautifully decorated eggs in the nests to complete the display. Refreshments, entertainment, prizes. We hope to also have some storytelling.
