Easter Activities at Newgrange Farm

April 11, 2020 - April 13, 2020


Easter time on the farm is action-packed too with plenty of eggs-tra activities to enjoy. Unleash your inner artist – paint eggs or design an eye-catching Easter bonnet and bring it with you to enter our competitions over the Easter weekend – prizes for the best entries.

You can enjoy the sheepstakes too. At 4pm on each day (weather permitting) see our teddy jockies urge their sheep down the stretch and across the finish line. It’s guaranteed to make you smile. Got a shepherd’s enquiry? Sheep racing also takes place every Sunday and bank holiday too (again, weather permitting).
