Easter events in Cornwall

With the sun set to shine, all our properties fully booked and plenty going on, it’s fair to say plenty of people will be wanting to make the most of Cornwall this weekend – us included! We’ve got a few things planned and a few others we’d like to try and fit in, and we want to share them with you so you know where to head and what to enjoy over this long weekend – here’re our top picks…

    1. Official Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt
      When: Sunday 21st April, 10.30 – 15.00.
      Where: Meet by the footbridge at the back of the sand dunes on Holywell Bay (between Perranporth and Newquay).
      What: Easter egg hunt on the beach! With an easy route for little ones and a trickier one for the slightly older hardened hunters, this hunt will suit everyone! Dogs on leads are also welcome. A Cadburys chocolate treat will be your reward!
      Admission: £2.50
    2. Wild Gin Safari
      When: Sunday 21st April, 14.00 – 17.00.
      Where: Porthmeor Bowling Club, St Ives.
      What: A ramble along the St Ives coastal footpath, exploring the uses of wild edible plants in a range of alcoholic drinks. Learn how to safely and responsibly harvest wild plants and make your own alcoholic infusions at home, enjoy some wild canapes and make your own Wild Gin on the spot!
      Admission: Tickets are £30.00 on Eventbrite. Over 18’s only!
    3. St Endellion Music Festival
      When: Saturday 13th – Sunday 21st April.
      Where: St Endellion Church, near Port Isaac.
      What: With a whole programme of events, this long-running spring festival celebrates classical music. With daytime and evening concerts and recitals, in the historic church of St Endellion, the atmosphere and talent is not to be missed if you’re in the area.
      Admission: Limited tickets on the door, and pricing varies. Expect to pay between £10-£20.
    4. Trevaskis’ Good Food Friday
      When: Friday 19th April, 10.00 – 16.00.
      Where: Trevaskis Farm, near Gwithian.
      What: With tasters and samples of a whole host of artisan food and drink makers for the adults, and a farm trail (including new lambs and calves!), crafts and games for little ones, this looks set to be a great day out in the sunshine to celebrate Good Friday.
      Admission: Free!
    5. Trewidden Gardens’ Easter Trail
      When: Wednesday 17th – Monday 22nd April, 10.30 – 16.30.
      Where: Trewidden Gardens and Tearoom, Penzance (Mount’s Bay).
      What: One of the Great Gardens of Cornwall, Trewidden is a great day out at any time of year. Over the Easter weekend, however, they will be bringing an Easter Trail to the garden! With the promise of a chocolate treat at the end, plus an excellent tea room for the adults, this is will be a lovely way to explore the gardens and keep kids entertained in the spirit of Easter.
      Admission: Standard admission fees apply – £7 for adults, under 16s go free. Trail is also free.
