Clarks Village in Somerset will be hosting a series of free "make and take" craft workshops this Easter, where children will create their own chickens, rabbits, lambs and suncatcher butterflies out of various materials.

Over the Easter weekend, Clarks Village will be welcoming local businesses in their pop-up market.

Traders include Wells fudge makers Go Fudge Yourself, treats from Shepton Mallet’s Sean the Chef, Glastonbury gin from the Somerset Crafts Distillery, and gourmet Scotch eggs from Bridgwater’s Chickies, as well as animal artist Emma Keys Portraits, Yeovil’s Shelden Glass showcasing its fused glass products and Smiley Myley selling its luxury lifestyle products for dogs.

No booking is required for the arts and craft sessions, which take place on March 29 and 30 from 11am to 4pm at the outlet's Homeware Pavilion.

From April 1 to 8, the shopping outlet will hold a family fun Easter trail where guests can hunt out 11 Easter eggs hidden within the window displays of the outlet's brands with the opportunity to claim a Lindt chocolate treat as their prize.

Free trail activity sheets will be available from the Clarks Village Guest Services team across the outlet, who will be wearing bright pink for the duration of the trail or from the Guest Services Hub located in Pear Court.

Chris Davis, Centre Director of Clarks Village, said: "It is our pleasure to welcome guests to visit Clarks Village over the Easter holidays. Our line-up of brands with exclusive-to-outlet discounts and dining is a huge draw - alongside our adventure play park, outdoor space and Central Square Gardens, which comes into its own during spring.

"We know that our guests have enjoyed browsing artisan stalls on their Clarks Village trips, from our previous successes, and we're sure the pop-ups will be a welcome addition this Easter, as well as our Easter egg trail and craft workshops."
