Easter Online

For us, Easter is one of the most wonderful times of the year; we’re really going to miss the bustle and buzz from our staff and visitors.

Unable to welcome you all in for the fun filled activities, games and events that were planned, we wanted to try to still involve you somehow. Up steps the power of digital. Over the coming weeks, here’s what we can still celebrate together...

The Re-Opening of the Hall

The doors will remain closed for the foreseeable, unfortunately. Any exploration of the wonders it beholds will have to wait. However, we are giving you a chance to get a glimpse of some of the unseen secrets via our social media channels, in a game we’re calling #SecretsOfBC. Some of these secrets will be from areas not accessible to the public or out of sight for many - much like this one

Easter Bonnet Competition 

Originally scheduled for Easter weekend, we would’ve had 3 different winners for our Easter bonnet competition. The prizes are already bought, so we still want to give them away. We’re assuming many of you have all the decorations ready to go, so  all you have to do is post a picture of you wearing your creation on social media, tag in Burton Constable or use the hashtag #EasterBonnetBC - we’ll then choose our winners! 

Easter Crafts

Again, we had lots of activities planned for you all. Some of which we can still share the ‘how to make’ instructions and images with you via our social media channels, so you can try them at home. These include Bird Feeders, Wildflower Seed Bombs & Wooden Bugs! We have also created a shared drive that we will be adding to, in case you wanted to download and print some of our colouring activities. 

Farmyard Friends

It’s devastating that we will not be housing the animals from Rand Farm this year. Seeing you all interact, admire and learn from them is one of our favourite things. Instead we’ll be looking to post some of the cutest pictures of our favourite Farmyard Friends with some interesting information and stats alongside - feel free to share your favourite Easter animals and interesting facts back with us on our social channels! 

Quizzes & Polls

For further entertainment and engagement, we’ll be delivering a series of quizzes and polls surrounding all things Burton Constable - we may even try a digital Easter Egg Hunt! Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram stories for your fix. 

Let’s hope at least some of this will keep you and the kids entertained over the coming weeks. Keep a close eye on our digital and social channels for updates - we’ll be running it on a similar schedule to how it was planned for Easter. 

If you have any other ideas for us or any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

In the meantime, stay safe and look after one another.
