Meet Cedric in his home, filled with confectionery curiosities, and then explore a secret hideaway of bouncing, colorful, chocolatey delights!

Spring has sprung in the woods so get ready for a hopping good time! Bounce your way through the Tricky Tunnels, bundle into one of our Twiggletastic tree houses and try to find all five Easter eggs in the woods (before the Pesky bunnies eat them!)

And don’t forget to bunny-up when you visit with our fun filled range of inclooosive activities! The Big Hat is hosting Boggle Bunny Ear crafts, which coupled with Bouncing Bunny face paint will ensure lots of fun and giggles! Be sure to catch the terrific tale of The Pesky Bunnies at our Storytelling Stage, where you can meet a whole host of wonderful characters!

Hop on down this Easter Holiday and see what all the nose twitching is about, Cedric can’t wait for you to meet him and explore his hoppy-home.
