Babbacombe Model Village Easter Egg Trail – 29th March – 15th April
The world famous Babbacombe Model Village – and its award-winning gardens – is one of the most popular attractions in Torquay. This highly detailed model village gives visitors a humorous insight into the last 60 years of British life and is loved by adults and children alike.
This Easter there’s been some new additions to Babbacombe – though they might be hard to spot. Hidden around the village are 20 Easter eggs, spot all of them and be rewarded with a chocolate prize – a great way to spend a warm spring afternoon with the kids!
Babbacombe Model Village is also running their evening illuminations from March 29th. Pay a visit on any Thursday evening and see this tiny world light up in all its glory.
Kents Caverns Dinosaur Quest – Easter Underground – 30th March – 15th April
Kents Caverns is the most impressive cave systems in the UK and is considered one of the most important Stone Age sites in all of Europe – being recognised as a nationally important archaeological site in 1957.
This Easter, the Caverns are running a variety of activities as part of their “Easter Underground” event. Young explorers can take part in a dinosaur quest and get up close to a full-size cave dinosaur. They can also help out the cavern caveman, Cavog, who’s managed to drop his Easter eggs around the cave – when he gets them all back he’s sure to give a generous reward!
Grinagog Music Festival – 20th – 22nd April
Entering its second ever year, the Grinagog music and arts festival combines the quirky elements of Glastonbury, family fun and a beachside location. Set in the grounds of the historic Torre Abbey, the Grinagog festival brings a colourful and creative festival experience to Torquay – something exemplified by the sea-monster Grinagog mascot itself.
With this year’s headliners including grime star Big Narstie and reggae legend Macka B, Grinagog is an exciting new entry in this year’s musical calendar.
