There’s plenty of ‘egg-citing’ activities this Easter at Bolton’s museums and libraries.

From designing cards and making chicks, to listening to stories and following Easter Egg trails there is lots to do this Easter for your young ones.

On Easter weekend visit Hall i’ th’ Wood Museum, on Saturday 15 April and Smithills Hall, on Monday 17 April from 12.30pm to 2pm, to follow the Easter Egg Trail and take part in themed craft activities. Both events are free but please book on Eventbrite:

The programme kicks off with a collage-making event on Saturday 8 April: 1.30pm to 3pm visit the Making Landscape exhibition to see our newest piece of artwork ‘Bolton’ which was created by Julian Trevelyan in 1937. The collage is from the 1930s Mass Observation project. Come along and create your own collage.

Events include fish feeding in the aquarium followed by Easter crafts; making baby chicks, nests, rabbit cups and lamb-shaped storybook at High Street Library; Easter themed crafts, activities, egg decorating competition, and fancy dress at Farnworth Library; and making your own rabbit mask and play pin the tail on the rabbit at Westhoughton Library.
