Great family events this spring at RHS Garden Bridgewater
There’s lots of fun for all the family this March and April at RHS Bridgewater!
Celebrate Mother’s Day on Sun 27 March with a visit to the garden, and, while you’re there, why not also enjoy Ramadan Kareem, a fun, interactive storytelling show inspired by Hiba Masood’s charming children’s book, Drummer Girl. Devised and performed by Hina Qureshi, Ramadan Kareem will transport audiences to Karachi in Southern Pakistan to tell a joyful story all about following your dreams. It’s ideal for little music-makers aged three and over. Take along your drums (or a pan and a spoon) and join in the fun!
There will be two 60-minute performances at 1:00pm and 3:00pm in the Welcome Building. Entry to the event is free - book online to reserve your place.
Then, this Easter, enjoy a supersized family adventure in the garden as some larger-than-life hand painted eggs await discovery on the Giant Egg Hunt from Sat to Sun 18 April. Explorers of all ages can follow the trail, and every child who successfully finds all the hidden eggs will be rewarded with a free chocolate treat from PLAYin CHOC to take home. This delicious chocolate is free from the top allergens, is organic, vegan-friendly, and ethically made here in the UK.
Additional activities on offer throughout the Easter holidays include fun planting and craft activities for the whole family. Normal garden admission prices apply.
The garden also has an ideal weekend lined up for keen gardeners and plant collectors. On Sat 2 and Sun 3 April, visit the Plant Heritage Spring Fair. With stalls from 10 specialist plant nurseries in the North, plus expert demonstrations, and talks, it’s also great for families too, with a spring garden mini trail to follow for the chance to win fun plant prizes.

RHS Garden Bridgewater is one of Peel L&P’s most significant legacy projects which secures the future of the Duke of Bridgewater’s historic estate. The 154-acre site on the grounds of Worsley New Hall is the fifth RHS garden and opened to the public in May 2021. The project was enabled by Peel L&P as the Bridgewater Estate landowners alongside Salford City Council.
It will create around 140 new jobs and is anticipated to bring an additional 700,000 visitors to the north west by 2028. RHS Garden Bridgewater is part of the RHS’ wider 10-year £100+ million investment programme to make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
