Egg-stra special events in Kirklees this Easter

There’s a whole host of egg-stra special events at Kirklees’ museums this Easter.

There will be plenty going on at Tolson Museum in Huddersfield and Bagshaw Museum in Batley to keep children occupied over the Easter holidays.

What’s happening at Tolson Museum?

The Tolson Museum in Ravensknowle Park, Wakefield Road will be running its popular annual Easter trail from 13-28 April.

Youngsters will have to find the Easter eggs hidden around the galleries and rearrange the letters on them into a chocolate-themed phrase. The trail is free and children will receive a sweet treat for taking part. Correct answers will be entered into a prize draw.

On Wednesday, 17 April, fairandfunky will be back at the museum with their SCRAPtastic workshop, creating artworks from recycled materials. Families can drop in anytime from 11am-1pm or 2pm-3pm to make flower mobiles and juice carton planters.

The workshop is suitable for three to 12 years olds and costs £3.50 per child, payable on the day. Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer throughout.

Then on Easter Sunday, 21 April, the Friends of Tolson Museum are running an Easter Egg Hunt between 1pm and 3pm. Children have to find the answers to clues hidden in the museum, park and the Heritage Memorial Gardens. Completed sheets will win an Easter egg.

Children should register for the hunt in the museum. The cost is £1 per child.

What’s happening at Bagshaw Museum?

Bagshaw Museum in Wilton Park, Batley is celebrating Easter with fun crafts and an egg hunt of its own.

On 16 April, youngsters can get creative making Fabergé-style eggs, bunny collages and printing cards. There will be drop-in sessions from 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm; no booking required. The cost is £2 per child; all ages welcome.

Then, on Easter Sunday, 21 April, there is a Fabergé-inspired egg hunt. Youngsters have to find the eggs hidden around the museum to earn a certificate and a small chocolate prize.
