Easter in North Bristol

We’ve picked a few fun things to do this Easter…

With the cold, snowy weather hopefully behind us now, it’s time to look forward to spring and the Easter holidays. As you would expect, there’s plenty going on in North Bristol over the next few weeks to keep all members of the family entertained.

Passion Play at Winterbourne Barn

ToFF (Together for Fromeside) Productions will be performing a traditional Easter Passion Play at the medieval barn on Good Friday (30th March) at 6pm. This is a retelling of the Easter story written by Emily Capstick and directed by her mother Jean. Entry is free but you do need to book a ticket.

Blaise Castle House Museum reopens

Blaise Castle House Museum opens for the season on 1st April (Easter Sunday) so you’ll once again have the chance to look around this fascinating house. Collections include artefacts from Bristol homes over the last 300 years and a Victorian school room. On 5th and 6th April, you can really explore the house and grounds by following the Easter Fairy Door Trail.

Gaming hub at Bristol Hippodrome

Something a bit different is coming to Bristol Hippodrome this Easter as it hosts a Reload, Relive, Replay gaming convention. The theatre will be converted into zones and you can roam them all and play wherever you want. You can even game on the Hippodrome stage. The Retro Zone will allow you to relive those favourite old classics and then you can come bang up to date in the Virtual Reality Zone.

Spring fun day at Willow Brook

On Tuesday 27th March, there’s a spring fun day at Willow Brook Centre. The highlight will be a petting zoo with giant rabbits, lambs, chicks & a miniature donkey but there’ll also be facepainters and an Easter treasure trail.

Aerospace Bristol

Although Aerospace Bristol haven’t got any special Easter events planned, it’s still worth putting this great new attraction on your list of things to do over the Easter holidays. It’s packed with exhibits showing Bristol’s aviation heritage and of course, features the last ever Concorde.
