Children invited to search for Ruby's lost dragon eggs
Families in part of Staffordshire are being invited to take part in an egg-stra special Easter egg hunt this April which will be taking place in and around the rooms and corridors of historic Tamworth Castle. And to make the seasonal event even more appealing for children, they are being given the task of helping Ruby the dragon find her lost eggs at the former medieval fortress. Ruby, Tamworth Castle's very own dragon, has disguised her eggs so that the dragon catcher cannot identify them. Her brother, Hafgrim has taken the extra precaution of hiding them in different parts of the castle but unfortunately, he cannot remember where he has hidden them!
Visitors to Tamworth Castle will be asked to scour every corner of the ancient building to find Ruby's lost eggs. Once discovered, the junior egg hunters can then record their findings on a quiz sheet. Once completed, they will be able to claim a small reward. The annual egg hunt, which promises to be a great activity to enjoy with children during the Easter school holidays, takes place each day between 11.30am and 4pm, starting from Friday 30th March and running until Wednesday 11th April. Normal admission prices to Tamworth Castle will apply for the Easter egg hunt. Entry is priced at £7.50 for adults, £6.50 concessions, £5 for children over five and £3 for children aged between two and four. Under-twos get in free of charge. Family tickets are also available for £23, based on two adults and two children. No pre-booking necessary.
