AN AWARD-WINNING artist is bringing her wildlife illustrations to Croome this Easter.
Visitors can meet renowned artist Hannah Dale as part of the National Trust site’s Easter celebrations this Friday and Saturday.
They can enjoy her designs depicting some of Britain’s most loved animals, in the walled garden in Croome’s grounds.
Visitors to the walled garden can enter a free prize draw with a chance to win one of Hannah’s prints and children can get creative and enter an Easter drawing competition.
The festive weekend will also see the return of Croome’s popular Cadbury Easter egg hunt, where children can explore the parkland following clues to unravel the mystery of the ‘giant’ lost eggs.
There is also an activity cabin where youngsters can make something to take home or have their face painted.
Hannah Dale, of Wrendale Designs, said: “I’m very excited about visiting Croome over Easter. It’s a part of the country I really love.
“My designs are very much inspired by the British countryside and all of the wonderful wildlife we’re lucky to share it with. We’re extremely proud to supply the National Trust with our cards and gifts.
“I’m looking forward to meeting Croome’s visitors over the weekend and hopefully inspiring some of the younger visitors as they create their own Easter pictures.”
Hannah will visit Croome from 11am to 3pm on Friday and 11am to midday on Saturday.
The Easter egg hunt costs £2.50 and runs from 10am to 4pm from tomorrow (March 24) to Sunday, April 10.
Easter activities and face painting cost £1 each and run between 11am to 3pm this Friday to Monday (March 28).
