Cadw has announced an eggs-travaganza of events at a number of its historic sites this Easter bank holiday weekend (18 – 21 April 2014).

Raglan Medieval Festival

From Easter egg hunts to archery trials and even a full scale battle re-enactment, there are 20 fun filled events taking place at Cadw sites across Wales, offering entertainment for the   whole family.

One of the highlights of the jam-packed bank holiday weekend will be the Easter pageant at Raglan Castle, featuring a full scale spectacular battle re-enactment, dozens of stalls and hands on activities.

On Easter Sunday (April 20) families can hop along to a number of Cadw’s impressive monuments to take part in Easter egg hunts, with  prizes up for grabs for younger visitors.

John Griffiths, Minister for Culture and Sport, said: 'More than two and a half million people visit Cadw’s 129 sites every year, and with events planned across Wales, Easter is the perfect time for local communities and visitors alike to explore these fascinating monuments to see and experience history coming to life.'
