Free Easter Holidays Family Fun Event

2 April @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

Free Easter Holidays Family Fun Event

Come and join us for Free Family Fun at St Machar’s Cathedral this Easter. There are two activity sessions over the school holidays –  Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd April from 10.30-14.00.

There will be family friendly Cathedral tours with costumes and props telling the ancient history of this cathedral in the heart of Old Aberdeen. Explore the Legend of St Machar, the pursuits of Robert the Bruce, the builder bishops and the collapse of the tower with a guided tour suitable for all ages.

Visit the craft table and make an Easter themed souvenir to take home. Delve deeper into the Cathedral’s past with our touch screen that has history, timelines and interactive puzzles for children and adults to enjoy. There is a dressing up rail for the more dramatic and an Easter trail around the Cathedral for the curious… and perhaps a few chocolate eggs too.

Free entry and no charge for the activities. Please note that children need to be accompanied by an adult. There is a shop selling souvenirs and local gifts and a warm welcome.
