TREASURE hunting in the grounds of castle will be the theme of Easter fun at Eastnor.

The much-loved annual family treasure hunt at Eastnor Castle will take place over the Easter weekend, every day between Good Friday April 18 and Bank Holiday Monday April 21 between 11am and 4.30pm each day.

This year the event will have an extra special and timely theme.

Castle manager, David Littlewood said: "This year the event marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and to commemorate the heroes, we invite families to take part in our Hunt for Heroes.

We need you to search for the brave bunnies and chickens around the castle and grounds, solve the clues and you may be a lucky winner of a giant chocolate egg!"

He added: "This is our favourite weekend of the year where local families come to Eastnor Castle to enjoy the annual treasure hunt and this year we are going back in time to World War 1.

" We have lots of new and exciting events planned for this summer and we have a new full size play Land Rover Defender and mini zip wire”.

Every child taking part in the Easter Hunt for Heroes will win a chocolate treat.
