School holiday fun begins on February 16, when visitors are invited to join the castle’s Dragon Hunt at Tamworth’s award winning castle. Come and help with the search for the castle’s dragons and learn how to decorate the dragons den and brush up on your dragon hunting skills!

Family fun for Easter begins on April 13 at the castle, with an ‘egg-stra’ special egg hunt. Ruby the Castle Dragon has disguised her eggs so that the dastardly dragon hunter will be unable to detect them.  As an extra precaution Hafgrim, Ruby’s brother, has hidden the eggs and now cannot find them!

Save the date for this year’s St George’s Day celebrations on Saturday, April 20, in the stunning castle grounds. The day promises a host of activities for all the family which attracts thousands of visitors each year. This year will see the return of crowd favorite’s such as live-action Medieval Jousting and a living history encampment featuring a host of medieval games and displays. An epic adventure for all the family!

As well as Tamworth’s own 14 nature reserves; the town is bordered by a number of parks which hold their own spring, half term and Easter events which are brilliant for families. These include Kingsbury Water Park, Pooley Country Park and Heritage Centre, Rosliston Forestry Centre and Conkers Discovery Centre.

Don’t forget the town will begin it’s preparations for the award-winning Heart of England in-Bloom competition. Tamworth is proud to hold the gold award for the past nine years and will be ensuring that floral displays will not disappoint visitors and judges this year.
