To keep the children entertained why not take them to see The Croods (U). Set in the prehistoric age, Grug Crood, voiced by Nicolas Cage, has taught his family to be afraid of the dark and new experiences, and tries to save them from the prehistoric lands by ushering them into a cave to keep them safe. However when the cave is destroyed, the family has to embark on a journey through the wilderness to find a new home. Great comic relief comes from the pet sloth called Belt, who offers up some great reactions to funny situations. Along with energetic vocal performances and amazing visuals this is a film that will entertain both children and parents.

Folk Music returns with family fun to the Raveningham Easter Folk Day and Grand Egg Hunt on Sunday (11am–5pm, egg hunt at 2pm), at Raveningham Centre. Local music will feature, along with dancing in the Ravenous Café, and of course the Easter egg hunt on the meadow which starts at 2pm. Some of the main acts will include East Anglian traditional musicians Rig-a-jig-jig, and young folk duo Will Glenn Duo. Entry for the Egg Hunt is £2 per person, and with no age limit its fun for all the family. For more information visit www.mdcannellantiques.com

Happisburgh Lighthouse is one of Norfolk's most famous landmarks, and this Sunday and Monday the Lighthouse will be open to the public to experience the lovely views of the Norfolk coast. For safety reasons children must be at least a metre tall and capable of climbing up and down the steps unassisted. Entry for adults is £3, and ages 8 to 16 costs £1.
