Churchill Island – home of the Easter Fun Festival

Churchill Island Heritage Farm will once again be transformed into a wonderland of imaginative inventions as the annual Easter Fun Festival plays host to a series of the ever-popular LEGO® brick play sessions. 

Expert play leaders from Inside the Brick will run hourly LEGO® brick play sessions for children between 10am and 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Inside the Brick fosters and promotes the benefits of construction play for cognitive and social development offering children access to play and experience social opportunities, and above all – just have fun. 

Last year’s LEGO® brick play event was so successful that every session booked out, so get in early and secure a space for your budding creators. 

There will be plenty of other activities for the whole family to enjoy, with the return of some Festival favourites.  Working horses, vintage cars and caravans, wagon rides, wood crafting (Saturday), historical machinery (Sunday), kids’ activities, face painting, and even a roving clown or two will keep everyone entertained. 

Of course, an Easter Fun Festival wouldn’t be complete without an Easter Egg Hunt, so bring those chocolate loving kids along between 10am and 1pm on Sunday.
