Comment on this story on the

Chiswick House and Gardens is a national treasure at the heart of a community and, as part of its ongoing commitment to providing a resource for that community, Chiswick House Gardens Trust has launched its 2010 fundraising event programme.

This year’s programme kicks off with children’s events on Easter Sunday April 4th and Easter Monday April 5th, sponsored by Cath Kidston. The fun begins at 10.00 a.m. on each day with an Easter bonnet parade, followed by a packed schedule of activities to entertain children and capture their imaginations.

This year, children can join in a “Guess How Much I Love You” Easter egg trail based on Sam McBratney’s wonderful story; there will be a Teddy Bear’s Picnic; and everyone’s invited to join in the “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” activities, inspired by author Michael Rosen. In addition to the events themselves, there will be other attractions such as face painting and Easter activities, and an opportunity to win a Cath Kidston dolls house.

Sarah Finch-Crisp, Director Chiswick House and Gardens Trust said, “We are delighted to be able to offer such a wonderful start to our community events programme and we are immensely grateful to Cath Kidston for sponsoring such a full and entertaining Easter programme. Our aim is to provide an ongoing series of engaging events and activities for all the family throughout the year, keeping Chiswick House and Gardens firmly at the heart of our local community”.

Whisk Cooking Solutions will also be sponsoring the decorated Easter egg competition. Bring your pre-decorated egg along with you on the day to take part.

Company of Cooks at the Chiswick House Café will be offering special picnic lunches for the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. These can be pre-ordered direct from the café.

Tickets cost £5.00 per child (age guide under 9) for each day and will go on sale in March when they can be purchased either from Chiswick House Café or from Cath Kidston at 125 Chiswick High Road. (The organisers advise that all children participating should be accompanied by an adult.)

So start making your Easter bonnet and decorating those eggs, and head to Chiswick House and Gardens for your Easter weekend entertainment. See for further information.
