Donkey-tastic fun at Redwings Aylsham this Easter!

free activities for kids this Easter holidays at Redwings Aylsham

Adoption Star donkeys Wiggins and Wacko along with their pals Derek and Harry can’t wait to meet you this Easter, when Redwings Aylsham, just north of Norwich, hosts three fun-filled weekends of activities themed around all that we love about donkeys.

The activities will kick start on Friday 30th March with the launch of Aylsham’s newest Adoption Star, adorable appaloosa pony Cookie, who's being welcomed to the Adoption Scheme to commemorate 10 years since he was rescued from Spindle Farm in Amersham. From 11:30am, Cookie will enjoy a lovely relaxing groom before his parade and tucking inot a “Welcome to the Adoption Scheme” cake.

During the holidays, you can also have a go at donkey grooming during one of our special grooming sessions, learn all about our long-eared friends during fascinating talks and tours, and meet Frieda and Fruska, two very special girls who were rescued with Cookie from Spindle Farm.

Visitors will also have the chance to help make enrichment toys filled with carrots on Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April in celebration of International Carrot Day.
