Easter Bunny Hunt 2020 @ Highfield Park Visitor Centre

The Easter Bunny Hunt takes place during the Easter school holidays and is run from the Visitor Centre. It is a fun event and requires no pre-registration. We only ask for a small donation of £3 per child, which is payable on the day.

Children are asked to follow a trail around a small area of the park in order to find a number of wonderfully painted animals, which inturn leads them to the location of the mysterious blue Easter Bunny. They will also be provided with a questionaire, which each question relating to the hidden animals in the hunt. Each question relates to the specific animal on the trail and should be completed whilst at the location. It’s a great way to encourage young children to explore their local park and the great outdoors, although everybody attending this event seems to enjoy it!

Outside Edge - 10th July Evening @ Highfield Park Cricket pavillion

Roger’s having trouble assembling his cricket team to play against the British Railways Maintenance Division Reading East. But these complications pall before those occurring among the team’s various wives and girlfriends. And just when it seems things couldn’t get any worse – it starts to rain!

Fans of Alan Ayckbourn in particular will love the way writer Richard Harris presents us with clearly-drawn, recognisable characters. The Bucks Free Press calls the play ‘very funny… the laughs come thick and fast as this very witty play unfolds’.

Company of Ten take their version of the play to the cricket pavilion at Highfield Park.
