Happy Easter

Animal magic, music, dance and puppet theatre all share top billing at the National Botanic Garden of Wales this Easter.
 
The meerkats are back and the Quack Pack is returning as is the Black Mountains Birds of Prey display team to wow holiday visitors at the best garden in Wales.
 
Small World Theatre, Cardigan, will present their wonderful puppet showTales from the Taiga and dancers from Tipyn o Bopeth will strutting be their traditional Welsh stuff.
 
In charge of events at the Garden is David Hardy. He said: “It’s a pretty mouth-watering line-up over the bank holiday weekend and throughout the Easter holiday. We also have our ‘Garden Explorers’ offer where young visitors can grab a back-pack, select from a range of activities and then head off into the Garden and enjoy themselves.”
 
He added: “We will be very busy as the season cranks up with a wedding, wood-turning demonstrations a fabulous new show in the Gallery entitled New Sylva – celebrating a major new book about trees and forestry for the 21st century and our first Woodland Walk Weekend.”
 
The Woodland Walk Weekend is on April 26-27 and features two, expert-led walks in the Pont Felin Gat woods looking at wildlife and the ABC of wild flowers: anemones, bluebells and celandines. And if you go down to the woods that weekend you can be sure of lots of fun family activities, too.
 
 
The Garden is open from 10am-6pm with plenty of free parking

    Hi,
    Could you send me a full listing of what’s on over the Easter bank holiday as I’m unable to access this information on the website?
    Many thanks

    We have activities, daily, through the Easter hols, and these are quite a lot about trees. Today (Monday) for instance, it’s all about family fun activities (AND for the next week): You can Make a May Whistle and a walking stick; try our Tree Identification Challenge; get to grips with Quills and Ink. 12noon-4pm. What larks!

    Next week will be Teddy Bears’ Picnics, Den-Building, Tiny tea parties, wonderful weaving, Easter nests, butterflies and stars. Good Friday itself sees the return of Jugglestruck, the marvellous Folly Farm magician; the world-famous Quack Pack and Llanarthne Dancers. There’s more of the same on Saturday while Sunday features Falconry displays, Fiddlebox and a Tractor Safari. The Falcons are back on Monday along with the Dyfed Carriage Club and their annual Easter bonnet parade.

    There’s also magical shadow puppet theatre on the 26th and 27th and that’s our first ever Woodland Walk Weekend, too.

    How’s that sound, Lowri?

    If you want more, just ask
