You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do over Easter, whether you’re visiting with children, friends, partners or parents, there’s something for everyone.

Head to Funstation, for the Hologate VR Experience or Rock Up for some competitive fun. Or kick back and relax in front of the big screen with an Easter cinema trip to Vue to enjoy new releases including Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

Vue mini mornings run all through the school holidays showing a specific film, as long as there's at least one child in your group, the whole family pays the same price of £2.49 per person. 

During the Easter holidays why not get active together at Air Haus or Jump Inc.

Finish your Easter day out at one of our restaurants, with options for everyone including Fridays, wagamama, and Frankie & Benny's.
