AN AWARD-WINNING artist is bringing her wildlife illustrations to Croome this Easter.

Visitors will have a chance to meet renowned artist Hannah Dale as part of the National Trust site’s Easter celebrations today (Friday) and tomorrow (March 26), where they can enjoy her designs of some of Britain’s most loved animals in the walled garden set within Croome’s grounds.

As part of the event, children can get creative and enter an Easter drawing competition and visitors to the walled garden can enter into a free prize draw with a chance to win one of Hannah’s prints.

The festive weekend will also see the return of Croome’s popular Cadbury Easter egg hunt, where children can explore the parkland following clues to unravel the mystery of the ‘giant’ lost eggs.

Youngsters can also get creative in the activity cabin, where they can make something to take home or have their face painted.

Hannah Dale of Wrendale Designs said: “I’m very excited about visiting Croome over Easter. It’s a part of the country I really love.

“My designs are very much inspired by the British countryside and all of the wonderful wildlife we’re lucky to share it with. We’re extremely proud to supply the National Trust with our cards and gifts.

“I’m looking forward to meeting Croome’s visitors over the weekend and hopefully inspiring some of the younger visitors as they create their own Easter pictures.”

Hannah will visit Croome from 11am to 3pm today and 11am to midday tomorrow.

The Easter egg hunt costs £2.50 and runs from 10am to 4pm until Sunday, April 10.

Easter activities and face painting cost £1 each and run between 11am to 3pm today to Monday (March 28).
