Don’t worry if the Easter Bunny forgets to deliver eggs this Easter because the BIG Sheep, at Bideford, North Devon will have enough chocolate eggs hidden throughout their world famous family attraction to share with everyone this Easter. The BIG Sheep will be open to visitors for its annual Easter Eggstravaganza Festival from the Friday 25th March to Friday 8th April. As well as having over 30,000 chocolate eggs to find, there will be something for all the family to enjoy this Easter.
Fluffy bunnies, choccie eggs, bulbs bursting into colour and cute new born lambs are just some of the wonderful things to see at the BIG Sheep this Easter.
Everyone will have their own favourite place to search for their egg – Dad might hunt out his egg in our brewery while mum busies herself hunting in our sheepy shop or Shepherd's Restaurant! A trip around our Ewetopia indoor playground might unearth a few eggs or some maybe hidden among the spring daffodils in bloom across the site. The outdoor Battlefield Live may also be the perfect place to find one. Who knows, maybe our horse whisperers will give you some clues where to find one, or one of our friendly staff just might have one hidden under their hat? There will also be a special area for toddlers to find their own little eggs.
As well as having the chance to find your own delicious egg, visitors may also experience Spring first hand, because Easter is the time when many of our new born lambs arrive and children will never forget the magical moment of seeing a new born lamb take its first steps and will love helping bottle feed some of our orphan lambs. Our indoor animal barn is full of lovely friendly animals – baby chicks, rowdy roosters, pygmy goats, adorable pups, perky piglets and fluffy bunnies.
Whatever the weather this Easter the BIG Sheep will be full of fun and laughter. Rick Turner, Director of the Flock says, “Easter is one of my favourite times at the BIG Sheep, it’s the arrival of Spring, the start of a new season when all our friendly staff are fresh and enthusiastic, and I love to hear the squeals of delight and the look of sheer pleasure on the faces of the children when they discover a chocolate egg!”
Friday 25th March - Friday 8th April - There will be free face painting and a chance to meet the Easter bunny. Don’t forget to bring your camera as the Easter Bunny loves to have his picture taken with children and adults.
The BIG Sheep’s Easter Eggstravaganza Festival has now become a firm fixture in the West country’s calendar of events when visitors explore every nook and cranny of the fun family attraction in search of one of 30,000 chocolate eggs which will be hidden throughout the site, take part in eggciting Easter events and enjoy a magical spring day to remember!
