Easter Events

Easter holidays in Cheshire this year will be a little different to the norm – but with places hoping to reopen on 12th April, there will be day trips to be had during the second week of the holidays (all being well!)

Here are some pleaces we know are hoping to reopen, along with some events and other things to keep you busy in Macclesfield, Congleton, Knutsford, Wilmslow, Poynton, Sandbach and surrounding areas.

If you are running an easter event or club and would like us to add it to our list please get in touch here.

If you’d like to search by day, all Easter events as well as other local family friendly events are on the Events Calendar.

Discover Tree Climbing

Discover Tree Climbing arose from the need for tree climbing experiences in the North of England. Co-director Neil was looking for somewhere to learn tree climbing but there was nowhere available locally, so after going further afield to learn the techniques, he is bringing it back home and making it available to you. Terry jumped at the chance to put his knowledge of trees and climbing techniques gained from years as an arborist to use in a socially conscious and exiting new way.

As seen on Blue Peter!! 

Neil has 25 years’ experience as a teacher, he has been running outdoor and environmental education events with the Wildlife Trust since 2010 and loves climbing trees in his spare time.
Co-director Terry has been working as an arborist since 2002 and has a passion for all things tree. His office space is the tree-tops of North West England and he would like nothing more than for you to share the experience of looking at the World from the crown of a tree.

Why not come and experience recreational tree climbing with us at the following locations this Easter?! This is a fantastic experience for anyone aged 6 and above to safely ascend into the canopy of a tree!
