FAMILIES and friends can design their own Victorian Easter card and enjoy a trail around York Castle Museum.

The attraction's entertainment begins on Good Friday, March 25 and runs until Sunday, April 10, and includes an egg and spoon race, Easter hunt and a trail around the museum with a prize draw competition.

The hunt runs over the bank holiday weekend only.

Lucy Knock, assistant curator of history, said: "We have great activities for all the family to enjoy from learning about traditional Victorian Easter cards and having a go at your own, to an Easter hunt and egg and spoon races in our activity yard.

"Don't forget; kids go free to York Castle Museum so the Easter holidays are a perfect time to visit."

Admission is £10 for adults, children under 16 go free with one paying adult. Free entry to YMT card holders.
