After the incredible success of last years Easter Eggstravaganza when hundreds of folk turned out to enjoy  the day’s events including the fabulous now world famous  Glenfinart Walled Garden  expectations are high for this Bank Holiday Monday’s  Eggstravaganza


Steven Gillen from the Forestry Commission Scotland has promised “Bigger & Better” with this year  more  unique Local Arts and Crafts presented for you by some of Cowal’s finest Artist with all manner of things to look at from Art, Ceramics. Pottery , Wood, jewellery and many unique items crafted especially for this event and you may  even purchase some of them  ……….Of course  the main attractions will be to entertain the young  and young at heart members of the family, with competitions galore  such as the Decorated Egg  and Bonnet Competition,  you can even have your face painted.

The big attraction again this year will be of course the Bunny Hunt and with so many children competing  last year and finding all the Bunnies, this year some bunnies have found really good places to hide from you.

No local Outdoor  event would  be complete without the famous Walking Theatre Company  with their unique brand of  interactive outdoor theatre for everyone to join in,  Mum’s and Dad’s look out for the WTC and enrol the children –what will the theme be year ?



 Glenfinart Walled Garden’s plans for participating in Forestry Commission Scotland’s Annual Easter Eggstravaganza at Ardentinny on 21 April are well underway.  After the winter storms which flooded parts of the garden, the volunteers (with the help of the Payback Team) have been hard at work constructing paths, installing edging in the vegetable plots and constructing raised beds in the polytunnel.

Claire’s innovative Children’s Garden is set to become a favourite with the kids this summer. Joining Bug Hotel, Elfin Cottage, the cycle wheel sculpture and the amazing flying fishes will be real flower beds complete with bed ends!
