Guildford Fringe Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Theatre Workshop

We recommend getting them signed up for this musical theatre workshop. Give them the chance to express themselves and blow off steam in a way that doesn’t involve running around the house. The days will be led by a professional actor from the West End’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory production and promise to be filled with singing, dancing and acting.

If your little ones are fans of the animated series of Peter Rabbit or you’ve been reading the much loved Beatrix Potter stories to them, they will love the adventure playground at Willows Farm. The playground has been designed for imaginative play and learning. There is also a Peter Rabbit Woodland Trail and a chance to meet the characters after live performances at the Peter Rabbit theatre.

Guildford Easter Egg Hunt

Get into the Guildford community spirit by joining the town’s annual Easter egg hunt. The Easter bunny has been busy stashing eggs around the town centre, so it’s time to team up and find those egg boxes. The colourful boxes can then be exchanged for an Easter goodie bag worth £20. Keep tabs on the Experience Guildford Facebook page too, as the Easter Bunny will be posting clues to help you discover where the eggs are hidden!
