Staff at Normanby Hall Country Park are pulling out all the stops with a packed programme of events with Beatrix Potter’s beloved Peter Rabbit taking centre stage.

Activities include free storytelling sessions of Beatrix Potter’s classics, a free Easter egg hunt, Peter Rabbit-themed afternoon tea and from 30 March to 15 April Normanby will play host to an Easter petting farm.
