Not sure what you’re doing yet this weekend but fancy doing something Easter-themed? I’ve already published my bumper guide to more than 100 family-friendly activities in and around Cardiff this April, and a guide to events in Cardiff city centre during the school holidays. This guide collates 25 Easter-themed events, including egg hunts and craft sessions, happening locally between Good Friday 14th April and Easter Monday 17th April.

If I’ve missed any, do let me know.
