Easter is the oldest and most significant feast day in the Christian year, and was a time of great festivities in medieval manor houses.

This tradition continues at Haddon Hall.

This Easter, Haddon Hall will be charmingly decorated with spring flowers and we shall be hosting a wonderful Easter weekend of archery, music, fun and festivities for all the family.

From 1st April to 1st May, we shall also be presenting our ‘Easter at Haddon’ Exhibition.  Found throughout the hall, this written exhibition uncovers the origins of Easter traditions from pre-Christian beliefs and folklore to biblical accounts of Christ’s death and Resurrection.  Join us and discover why we eat chocolate eggs at Easter and why the Easter bunny should really be a hare!
