The Mum's guide to Hitchin Easter Holidays Guide - Week 2


I swear I blinked after Half Term and the Easter holidays are here! 

I've updated the guide for everything that's on in Week 2.

The good news is there is so much going on locally that you’ll have no chance to be bored with all the events lined up!

Don't forget we are lucky to have an amazing array of local Holiday Clubs, Camps and Playschemes, so do check out the Holiday Clubs section here.

You can find all the events, by day, in the What's On Guide here (and don't forget you can jump to a specific date using the handy Calendar tool)

Please do check event/attraction details before travelling, as I can't keep this entire list updated I'm afraid.

Follow my pages on Instagram and Facebook where you'll find all the latest news on the grid and in my stories and highlights.
