What's On for Kids in North East England | Easter 2022

what's on for kids in north east england - Easter 2022


This post is currently being updated for 2022 and contains adverts. 

Attractions regularly change their opening hours, admission fees, booking policies and offerings. I try to keep this post as updated as I can but it is important that you check updated details with the venue direct before setting off. 
This post covers Friday 8 April 2022 - Sunday 24 April which is when my own children are on holiday. Please check with your own school for your exact dates, apologies if they aren't exactly the same as ours. Finally, apologies if an event linked in here has sold out. I always check for availibility when I first add and share the events but availability obviously will change over time. 

Bedknobs and Broomsticks at Sunderland Empire 


Bedknobs and Broomsticks, the Magical Musical is showing at Sunderland Empire this Easter from 19-24 April. By special arrangement with Disney Theatrical Productions, you can expect to be wowed with bewitched broomsticks and a magical flying bed as you join an adventure from Portobello Road to the depths of the beautiful briny sea.

Recommended for ages 6+, this is my top pick for family theatre this Easter. Find out more and book here.
