ANIMALS of all shapes and sizes will be on show at Hartlebury Castle on Easter Monday.

Visitors to the All Creatures Great and Small event at the historic building, which will run from 11am until 5pm, will be able to get up close with baby meerkats, skunks, armadillos, snakes, scorpions, spiders and more.

Young and old will be able to enjoy ferret racing, falconry and heavy horses will also be on show while children can get their hands on the bones of 250,000-year-old woolly mammoth Frank or make mosaic coasters to take home.

Worcestershire County Council’s visitor experience manager Rachel Robinson said: “It's not often you get a chance to see such a huge variety of creatures in one place but at our event visitors will meet everything from creepy snakes and spiders to cute lambs, meerkats and beautiful heavy horses.

“Plus some of the animals you will be able to touch and hold so it's a real opportunity for a unique and memorable day out."
