Easter Bunny Fun! 15th - 17th & 22nd - 24th April 2014

 

It's the second major Family Event of the year and the Easter Bunny will be visiting the CFR! Every year we make our family events bigger and better and this year is no exception! Thomas and his Friends will be out and in action for the return of Drive A Train but it's bigger than ever before. Joining Thomas, Percy, James and Emily is Toby who will be ready for you to drive when you visit on this event. There will be lots of other things to see as well. Which famous TV characters can you see in Priory village, maybe Postman Pat or Snow White? I wonder where everyone's favourite little green welsh engine will be hiding, Ivor? There will also be some traction engines on display! The main attraction, as always, will be our Drive Thomas and Friends, £2 for 5minutes. For more information on this, CLICK HERE!!

ARE YOU BRINGING YOUR TEDDY? IF YOU ARE DRIVING THOMAS OR ONE OF HIS FRIENDS, YOUR TEDDY CAN TAKE A RIDE IN A TRUCK!!*

We look forward to seeing you then!! Moshi Mosh...
