The Pavilion Gardens gets ready for Easter fun

As Easter approaches, look to the Pavilion Gardens to entertain you and your family for the whole weekend.

This year the popular Easter Fair covers the whole weekend from Good Friday to Easter Monday. Here you can wander round a fabulous variety of stalls from food and drink, home and garden ware to gifts and jewellery. There will also be lots of plants to buy from one of many local garden suppliers who are willing to share their expertise and offer advice on planning your spring garden.

Over the weekend 70 stalls will fill the Octagon Hall and outdoors on the promenade there will be hot food stalls, children’s fairground rides, music and dancing. Well know black and white photographer Dave Butcher, who has been making photographic images since the early 70’s will be there signing his fourth book, ‘city light’ throughout the weekend.

In addition, on Good Friday there will be an Easter Egg Hunt and Face Painter (which continues throughout the weekend) and live music between 11 am and 1.30pm. On Saturday the Tideswell Brass Band will be playing on the Band Stand between 2pm and 4pm.
