Children’s favourite Peter Rabbit will be hopping along to Letchworth’s Standalone Farm for a special Easter celebration as part of two weeks of holiday events.
The farm is offering daily Easter egg hunts, story time, a maze, arts and crafts, sack racing and a bunny hop, as well as the special one-off appearance by Peter on Saturday, April 4.
There will also be two days of vegetable planting on Good Friday and Easter Saturday, themed to tie in with the Beatrix Potter story.
Standalone Farm manager Andrew Milich said: “We’re really looking forward to Easter. As well as all the special activities, we have newborn lambs and our lively piglets, who are really proving popular. We are hoping there’s something for everyone.”
Peter Rabbit will perform five guest appearances throughout Easter Saturday, bringing his own brand of mischievous fun as he hunts for radishes and adventure.
Local artist Kitty Dinners and Anne-Marie Stijelja will run workshops to help children make bouncing bunnies and chicks over the two school holiday weekends and here will also be face painting on offer Monday to Wednesday each holiday week.
The farm has a new partnership with Letchworth business LunchMate to supply the café at Standalone with light lunches.
