Easter activities in the North West

Easter is a great time to spend with friends and family, and there are some super events taking place across our region. Whether you engage in Easter activities with children or prefer more adult-orientated activities, you're sure to find something to suit over the holiday weekend.

Out and about at Easter
There’s not a village or town that isn’t geared up for activities over the Easter period, and so you’re sure to find events that meet your needs. From religious services, village hall events, farm-based activities, local markets, concerts or simply a wonderful Easter walk.
