Young participants eagerly await the judging.

As part of our Easter festivities last week, we invited young visitors to take part in our Easter Bonnet parade. Children of all ages created their very own Easter bonnets and entered a competition for the best Easter Bonnet with classes for those over and under 8. We saw some fantastic bonnets from children of all ages. Congratulations to all who took part on some very impressive creations!

Here are just a few photos from the day. You can find a few more images in the East London Advertiser. Well done to all of our participants!

Why not come down and celebrate at the park and farm this bank holiday weekend! We are open every day and free to the public (more on planning your visit here). And don’t forget your camera! This weekend we are holding the first ever Mudchute Farm Flickr photo competition! The winning photographer will win a VIP tour of the farm, where you’ll have a chance to ask us all of your questions, meet your farmyard favourites, and have plenty of handling opportunities and photo ops!

Everyone is welcome to take part, whether you’re a professional or just manage to snap a photo on your camera! To enter, just upload your photos from around the farm to our flickr pool by midnight next Wednesday, 6th June Sunday, June 11th*. We’ll contact the winner on Wednesday the 13th to arrange your private VIP farm tour (on any Saturday in June). Good luck and enjoy the long weekend!

* UPDATE! We’ve extended the deadline for the photo competition through half term. Note the new deadline is this Sunday, the 11th of June.
