SOLD OUT: Easter Bonnet Workshop and Garden Easter Egg Hunt

SOLD OUT: Easter Bonnet Workshop and Garden Easter Egg Hunt

Join us for a family-friendly drop in Easter Bonnet decorating workshop and Easter Egg Hunt in the Mulberry Garden at Hogarth’s House!

PLEASE NOTE: This event has now sold out! We will have further programming for families and young people in the near future!

Did you know that, in the 18th century (when the Hogarths lived in the house), it was considered bad luck not to have new clothing at Easter? Well – you are in luck…

Get ready to create your own whimsical Easter Bonnet to wear on your quest to retrieve hidden Easter Eggs in the Mulberry Garden at Hogarth’s House!

Join us for our drop-in workshop and egg hunt at the museum, come rain or shine. All materials will be provided, with staff assistance on the day to make your new hat be the talk of the town. Plus, there will be hidden eggs around our Mulberry Garden for you to retrieve, in exchange for a little treat… (we can’t guarantee that you won’t have to share them!)

Plus, we have a special offer – tickets are £6 for one child, and, if you bring a friend or sibling, there will be a combined price of £10 for both (excluding Eventbrite fees).

All ages welcome (the young and the young at heart!), though we do require every two children to be with at least one adult carer / parent / guardian. (Further details below)

THE FINE PRINT: (This will also be available on the day to all participants, and will be reminded of you by staff)

Bonnets and decorations will be provided as part of your ticket price. Members of staff will be on-hand to facilitate using hot glue on the day. Please note that, due to precautionary safety measures, the hot glue guns will only be used by staff at Hogarth’s House, and therefore there will be a queueing system for children to have elements added to their hats.

Easter eggs will be hidden throughout the garden at Hogarth’s House, and will be hollow with a message inside. Please bring the message to the reception desk to exchange for a chocolate or treat, limit 5 per child. Eggs will not be hidden at the back of the garden beds or in the Mulberry Tree, please refrain from stepping through the planting and climbing the tree when searching for the eggs. There will be a barrier in place to dissuade anyone from climbing the Mulberry Tree (as it is over 300 years old!), but staff will remind participants of this.

We would like this to be an enjoyable experience for all participants, however, behaviour which results in failure to adhere to safety measures and ignored staff guidance will not be tolerated.
