Our guide for an action packed Easter Holiday!

14 March 2016 | London Calling

With the Easter holidays just round the corner we bring you a whole host of ideas from across the North West,  so that you and your family can make the most of it:

Horrible Histories take to the stage at the Liverpool Empire on the 30 and 31 March. Discover the truth about growing up in Greece as actors and 3D special effects bring historical figures and events to life!

Follow an inquisitive caterpillar into a beautiful garden where together your family can experience live music and playful movement in this fun and visually striking show. Book your tickets today for Where Caterpillars Go at The Horse + Bamboo Theatre in Rossendale on 3 April.

At the Museum of Science and Industry, your family can book in a 90 minute session at PlayIt! and try out the 180 games and consoles on offer. Play some of the greatest video games of the past 30 years, from Pacman to Mario.

Set sail aboard the Pirate Express at the East Lancashire Railway, with their Pirate Adventure Family Fun day! A cast of characters will lead you in a day of high adventure with activities galore to keep the whole family occupied.

Over in the amazing surroundings of Jodrell Bank, there will be experiments to watch and take part in as you and your family travel through the solar system. The Planets Science Show takes place 4 – 8 April.

Mascot Pickles the dog will be in the party mood over at The National Football Museum this Easter weekend. It is 50 years since he tracked down the stolen World Cup Trophy, so on Good Friday, take part in the trophy trail with sweet treats for everyone. Then on Easter Sunday, you can take your own dog into the museum as the National Football Museum are joined by Manchester Dog’s Home.

Lullaby Lane is a unique theatrical experience, mixing the feeling of a music concert with the intimacy and magic of theatre. Book your tickets now at the Edge Theatre for 8 April.

The Storybarn at Calderstones is Liverpool’s first interactive story-centre for young people to explore and set off on a literary adventure! This is a perfect day out for all families with children under the age of 12.
