Big Charity Rock Hunt

On April 17th, Easter Sunday, we are hosting a giant rock hunt and fun day for all the family.

We have hundreds of beautiful hand-painted stones which will be hidden around the amazing quarry gardens, in the spooky forgotten maze, and a gentle meadow alongside the gentle river Sowe, where Otters and Kingfishers play. Rock Artists from all over the UK have been sending us their work by the boxload, and local artists have painted special animal themed boulders as part of an extra challenge.

There will be a treasure hunt competition with prizes to be won, including £50 CASH and afternoon tea for two at a luxury hotel, and Bridge View Miniature Railway to enjoy as it tootles around the lawns.

Why not paint some stones yourself and bring them along to hide on the day?

Please note that the Garden Centre itself, and ALL the additional businesses on site will be CLOSED all day, but the Potting Shed Cafe will be open for refreshments, and an awesome Bavarian Swing Grill will be on site for tasty burgers, including vegan and gluten free options.

Gates Open at 10am on April 17th, but rocks will be hidden throughout the day, so no rush to all arrive at once!

This event is being held in order to raise funds for two local childhood cancer charities.

Entrance to the event is just £10, which covers one family or group in a single car. All proceeds from the event are going to the charities.

Important Information About the Venue

Although dogs are normally very welcome, we request that only assistance dogs be brought on this special day, thank you. All under 12’s MUST be accompanied at all times, and please be aware that after wet weather it might be best to come in Wellies to enjoy all of the areas to the full. The gardens are set in an ancient rock quarry and are great fun to explore, however there some deep pools and steep drops around the garden, so please ensure your little ones are under close supervision at all times.

Here’s a link to the event on our Facebook page, it’d be really helpful if you let us know if you are coming,  thank you 🙂

We hope you can make it, Tickets are limited this year and places are selling out fast!

Here’s a quick preview of just some of the 1000’s of rocks that have been up for grabs at these events!
