Spring into Easter, running from the 22nd to 25th April, promises a range of Easter-themed events for groups of all ages, from a trail through the groups to craft activities on the pavilion lawn.

Commemorating the wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton, groups can join in the Royal Wedding Celebration on the 29th April, as it is broadcasted live on a big screen. Festivities will continue into the evening, with an open-air screening of musical comedy film Mamma Mia!, and a magnificent fireworks display.

The popular Home and Garden Weekend on the 21st and 22nd May offers a range of home furnishings, kitchen and cookery items, fashion, garden equipment and plants to buy. Groups can also enjoy the picturesque grounds in late spring, with a variety of entertainment and catering on offer.

Featuring medieval activities and entertainment for parties of all ages, the Jousting Tournament returns to the castle from the 31st May to 5th June. With twice-daily jousting tournaments from knights on horseback, medieval weapons and displays, the festival promises something for everyone.

Groups visiting throughout the season can so enjoy additional activities such as the World of Wings flying displays, aviary talks, and the chance to Go Ape! with the high wire forest adventure located in the castle parkland.
