28 + Best Easter Events West Midlands 2021

Welcome to our what’s on guide for Easter in the West Midlands, 2021. This includes events and places that are open in the counties of Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, West idlands and Worcestershire. Please check with the attractions that they are open and their events are running before you leave home.

The government’s road map currently permits gardens to be open. However, attractions with animals and theme parks (outdoor rides) aren’t permitted to open until the 12th of April (all going well, this is subject to change). From the 29th of March, the Stay at Home order ends. This means people will be free to go outdoors for non-essential reasons with the recommendation to stay local. Easter School Holidays vary across the West Midlands. I will include anywhere that reopens from the 29th March through to the 12th April, your school may not necessarily be closed. Below you will find ideas on where to visit/where will be open.

If you have an event or an attraction that you would like included please do get in touch. If you would like a larger, more detailed, event/attraction listing including photos please see this post. I also offer Facebook advertising to my large engaged audience.
