Published: 02/04/2019 By Jessica ChalmersWe’ve got a few ideas to keep your Easter chicks amused over the next couple of weeks in Chiswick and the surrounding areas:#
Sunday Stories at Kew
Enjoy an entertaining story from across the globe in the Davies Exploration House. Get lost within your imagination on an enchanting journey, inspired by some of the rarest plants in the world.
Tower of Colour
Learn why light and colour spectrums are vital for plant survival whilst decorating ornaments with UV pens. Once your masterpiece is finished add it to the vibrant Tower of Colour. Don’t leave before you’ve got your hands dirty planting seeds to take home.
Head to the Pier House for the annual race between Oxford and Cambridge. The Fullers bar opens at 12:30 so grab a drink and a bite to eat from the BBQ and still have time to nab a good spot before the 1st race begins at 2:15. If you arrive after the masses fear not there will be a big screen so you won’t miss the action and you can still soak up the atmosphere. Live music will keep the festival atmosphere going!
Chiswick Food Market
Swing by the brilliant food market on Sunday between 10-2pm; A social enterprise set up by the wonderful Chiswick Community. The delectable market offers fabulous produce from around the country. On Sunday 14th April there will be a Treasure Hunt for children. Top tip: Arrive hungry!
