March sees the return of the popular monthly street food event, Street Eats and Beats.

The Hastilow Drama Festival also returns, an exciting week of theatre where youth and adult groups show off their talent in this popular One Act Play Festival.
Family fun for Easter begins on April 13 at the castle, with an ‘egg-stra’ special egg hunt. Ruby the Castle Dragon has disguised her eggs so that the dastardly dragon hunter will be unable to detect them. As an extra precaution Hafgrim, Ruby’s brother, has hidden the eggs and now cannot find them!
