 * Kids will be entertained this Easter at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley on Thames, where two weeks of Spring festivity will take place.

 Between March 31 and April 15, the museum’s galleries will be the setting for an intriguing trail of clues set by the Easter Bunny himself. Children can explore and solve puzzles to track down their delicious prize.

On April 10, there’s also the opportunity to get up close to fuzzy springtime animals at Whiskers and Wildlife, or to have an afternoon of muddy fun by the river while learning about local wildlife in Birds Roc! Find out more about these activities and lots more Easter fun for kids and adults alike on the museum website rrm.co.uk or call 01491 415600.

* A classic American play will be celebrated in its 75th year anniversary by one of the region’s newest and most exciting theatre companies.

The Apollo Theatre Company performs Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, the life-long story of residents in fictional New Hampshire town Grover’s Corners.

It’s an interpretation of ordinary life that, through strikingly normal characters, encourages us to question how much we value our time on Earth.

The play will be performed on April 5 and 6 at the Old Fire Station. Tickets are £12 and can be purchased online at oldfirestation.org.uk, from the OFS shop in Gloucester Green or by calling 01865 263980.
