Plenty for the family to do in Canterbury over the Easter holiday

Plenty going on in Canterbury this Easter

The weather in Canterbury is set to be rainy for at least for the next week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun over the Easter school holiday.

Starting on Friday, March 30, the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in the High Street is holding an Easter themed create a BFG “art y fact” around Roald Dahl’s Big Friendly Giant. It costs £1.

It costs £1 and visitors can just drop in. The event runs until Sunday, April 15.

Running on the same days at the Beaney is a “create your own duck feet event”.

It invites youngsters to “come and make your own wearable duck feet inspired by our resident four-legged duckling. Parade around the museum and see if you can find the duckling on display in our galleries”. Entry is £1.
