Hackney’s oldest home - Sutton House - hosted an Easter eggstravaganza at the weekend, with an egg and spoon race and a pin the tail on the bunny competition.

Over 500 parents and children turned up to Sutton House in Homerton High Street to make Easter crowns, cards and chicks.

People were also invited to dress up for a Tudor-themed banquet in the 16th Century house built in 1535 by prominent courtier of Henry VIII, Sir Ralph Sadleir.

Learning intern, Laura Sear said: “Given the cold weather we are really pleased we managed such a turn out, it’s a really nice way to get families coming to this local property.”

The National Trust runs the free family fun days at Sutton House on the last Sunday of every month.
