Have you had the kids climbing the walls over the winter months? Do they stare longingly through the glass of your downstairs windows, pining for the space and fresh air that the outside offers? Do you long for the days that they can run around on the grass rather than climbing all over your furniture? 

Well, you'll be glad to see that Spring has sprung, the days are getting longer and the weather is picking up!

To celebrate, Stray FM's Family Show invited Sally Haselwood from Harrogate Mumbler into the studio to give you the lowdown on what's happening for families as we hurtle towards the Easter Holidays.

Among the topics up for discussion were:

  • Lambing
  • Easter bunny hunts
  • Cinema
  • Sports camps
  • Gymnastics
  • Beer

Wait, beer? For families? Well, parents deserve a treat too! Get everything you need to know about all the above, and a special mention for the Harrogate Beer Festival, by listening to the chat:
