Join the Easter hunt 28 March – 12 April
He’s behind you! Keep a look out for the Lindt Gold Bunnies
at RHS Garden Harlow Carr this Easter
Hop down to RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate this Easter and enjoy a host of family fun activities – and, if you’re lucky, a chocolate treat!
The main holiday fun kicks off on Saturday 28 March and runs until Sunday 12 April with the Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt (10am – 4pm daily). Youngsters can hop through the garden and follow in the footsteps of the Master Chocolatier in this fun family trail. Follow the clues closely and see how many of the famous golden bunnies you can spot on your adventure. If you stay on the right track, you’ll be rewarded with a tasty chocolate treat.
In addition to the trail, there will be plenty of fun-filled indoor craft activities, including the chance to make your very own bunny ears and Easter eggs as well as outdoor workshops for all ages to enjoy.
And over the long Easter weekend (Friday 3 – Monday 6 April) there’s an extra-special treat for youngsters as the Easter bunny himself will be visiting the garden from 11am to 2pm.
For the grown-ups, the Easter Arts and Crafts Exhibition is running in the garden’s historic Bath House from Tuesday 17 March to Sunday 12 April (10am – 4.30pm). Handmade jewellery, ceramics, textiles, photographs and much more will be on offer, and there will also be opportunities to meet the talented makers and see craft demonstrations.

About the RHS
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1804 by Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgwood for the encouragement and improvement of the science, art and practice of horticulture. We held our first flower shows in 1820, were granted a Royal Charter in 1861 and acquired RHS Garden Wisley, the first of our gardens, in 1903. From our first meetings in a small room off London’s Piccadilly, we have grown to become the world’s largest gardening charity.
Today the RHS is committed to providing a voice for all gardeners. We are driven by a simple love of plants and a belief that gardeners make the world a better place. 211 years on we continue to safeguard and advance the science, art and practice of horticulture, creating displays that inspire people to garden. In all aspects of our work we help gardeners develop by sharing our knowledge of plants, gardens and the environment.
RHS membership is for anyone with an interest in gardening. Support the RHS and secure a healthy future for gardening. For more information call: 0845 130 4646, or visit www.rhs.org.uk
