Hedingham Castle is set to host a variety of family-friendly activities this Easter.

Starting on Sunday, March 31 and running until Wednesday, April 3, participants can enjoy two different trails - the Dragon Egg Hunt and Fairy Door Trail.

Both the trails are within the castle grounds, requiring people to explore through the woodlands and gardens as they hunt for hidden treasures.

Anyone who successfully completes the trails can look forward to a "delicious treat".

On Tuesday (April 2) and Wednesday (April 3), Eden Falconry will host a static display of their birds of prey at the castle.

Visitors will have a chance to meet the birds in person, and gain an understanding of their distinct abilities and traits.

On Wednesday 10 and Thursday, April 11, the castle is to run the Knight School, providing one-hour coaching sessions on medieval combat using 'cushioned' weaponry.

Suitable for those aged six and over, the school will provide expert guidance about the art of swordplay as well as chivalry.

Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, will see the return of Knights of Middle England at the castle.

The event will include a jousting exhibition showcasing displays of medieval combat in front of the historic Norman keep.

Besides jousting, there will be a host of other activities such as archery, axe throwing, falconry displays, arts and crafts, and a medieval village for attendees to enjoy.

The castle is offering an Easter pass or Easter pass plus for those planning on frequent visits over the Easter break, with unlimited access to all the activities over the two-week period.
