Hop to Tatton Park this Easter for lots of chocolatey fun !


There is so much happening at Tatton Park this Easter with chocolate trails in the Gardens, Mansion and at the Farm (29 March – 1 April). With a ewe-nique Shaun the Sheep arts trail through the Gardens together with Shaun’s Easter championsheep games, Little Grey Fergie the Tractor at the Farm and an Easter Bunny trail in the Mansion, families will be spoilt for choice. Retail therapy is also on the agenda with a four-day Easter Pop Up Market in the bustling Stableyard where you will discover artisan food producers, local artwork, and beautiful homeware.

Find the flock!

Visitors to Tatton Park will be able to follow an exciting arts trail of 12 super-sized Shaun the Sheep sculptures, each of which will be uniquely designed and painted by a group of artists from across the region. The trail is the result of a collaboration with BAFTA® award-winning production studio, Aardman, and global art producer, Wild in Art, which sees one of Aardman’s much loved characters, and star of film and television, ‘Shaun the Sheep’ coming to Tatton Park this spring. The sculptures will be positioned in Tatton Park’s iconic gardens and will represent a colourful celebration of everything visitors love about Tatton’s glorious gardens. In addition, visitors that flock to Tatton on Monday 1 April will have the chance to meet Shaun himself!

More baa-rilliant fun at the Farm!

Those who haven’t had enough of sheep spotting will be able to meet the adorable newborn lambs at the Farm during Lambing Week (5 – 12 April) and listen as Farm staff share their expertise with visitors, giving informative talks at the lambing shed. They will also have chance to see Ewe-Tube sensation Little Grey Fergie, the Tractor, making the Farm his home in 2024, and trying to avoid the scrap dealers who are after him! For Easter Aunt Mary will be in her Cottage decorating the egg tree, and visitors can enjoy storytelling and meeting the chicks.


Follow the Mansion trail or strut your stuff at the Easter Family Silent Disco!

From 29 March – 14 April families can join the hunt for Easter eggs for the Easter bunny in a family friendly trail around the Mansion’s state rooms and servants’ quarters. A tempting chocolate reward will be on offer for children during the Easter weekend 29 March – 1 April. Or if dancing is your thing Saturday 30 March sees the return of the popular Easter Family Silent Disco with Our Kids Social.  A chance to enjoy dance challenge games, props, bubbles and more! Dress to impress in your favourite Easter outfit. Visitors can choose which channel to listen to as they party, whether its kids’ pop or adults’ guilty pleasures!
