A one-stop-shop for entertainment and crafts

Where: Taurus Crafts, near Lydney in the Forest of Dean

When: Saturday, April 6, to Sunday, April 28

Taurus Crafts is a place of opportunities this Easter holiday as visitors will be able to join in on the many hands-on activities and try something new or discover a new hobby.

With activities every day from Saturday, April 6, until Sunday, April 28, this is the go-to venue for families looking for an easy one-stop-shop for entertainment, local crafts, art, and a café serving delicious lite bites, coffee and cakes.

With 26 activities on offer this April, joining Taurus Crafts' ever-expanding range of activities are seven brand new and exciting activities, including hunting for fossils, making your own wind chimes, and eco-friendly and all natural nature-themed activities with workshop leader Jaymee who will show you how to make your own origami plant pots, seed bombs, and pine cone birdfeeders.

Once again, the creative opportunities aren't limited to 'making' or 'performances'. Visitors can also try their hand at 'edible crafts' too. Visit the Hospitality School for the chance to make tasty treats by dipping fruit and marshmallows into chocolate and then decorating. Plus, there is cupcake decorating and Easter biscuit baking with Isabell's Bakehouse or painting your own chocolate with one of our onsite independent traders.

Not to be missed are regular holiday favourites Arnie Kazzam magic show, fairy & dragon homes, puppet show & puppet making, squishy painting, slime making, reptile handling, a free trail, pottery painting and pottery throwing on a wheel.

The list of activities often gets added to, so it's well worth keeping an eye on Taurus Crafts' Facebook page and website.

Before the Easter activities kick off, Taurus Crafts is serving Mother's Day Special lunches this Sunday from 12 non to 3pm. So why not treat your mum, nan, step-mum or the important women in your life to lunch. There is a free gift with every group booking for every mum in your party.

Taurus Crafts is located on the A48 near Lydney and has a large, accessible car park. It is open 10am to 5pm daily.
