What's on in the North East for kids and families over Easter

The Easter holidays are one of my favourite times of the year - the weather is usually nice enough to get out and about and as always, there is a lot going on in the North East. This year, along with a 'what's on' guide I have created an event over on my Facebook page where people can post recommendations for places they've visited over Easter or events that they have spotted.


Before we delve into the full what's on guide, here are some previous posts that may be of interest:-
