Mothers' Day, Rugby, three course meals and some art

If you want to something more for Mothers Day then just the usual burnt toast in bed with luke warm tea and some daffodils picked from the neighbours garden, then there are a few events on which may be of interest.

Beverley Racecourse is hosting a Mother’s Day on Sunday which includes a three course lunch and family fun day. Tickets do cost £22.50 per adult and £11.25 per child, but you do get face painting, balloon modelling, a children’s entertainer and all mum's in attendance will also receive a gift of two complimentary Premier Enclosure badges, for the race meeting on Monday May 7.

KC Stadium is hosting a Mothers Day special which includes live Rugby League (Hull FC vs Widnes Vikings) and a three course meal and chcolates. For more information phone 01482 505600. tickets are still available but do cost £50.

For a cheap but nice trip, a visit to Ferens Art Gallery is well worth it, especially as entry is free!!

Hockney Trail and Humber Pies!!

Wow what a great week for the weather.
If you want to make the most of it this weekend, then I recommend the Hockney Trail The website contains the locations of lots of the Hockney paintings. I am looking forward to doing the trail again in the different seasons. It should really allow us to see how our lovely countrysides changes.

Another visit which is well worth it is the Humber Bridge Farmers Market on Sunday. There are loads of stalls and loads of pies!! Just ready for Pie week which is the 5th- 11th of March. Maybe I should walk to Hockney Trail to burn off some of the calories from the yummy pies.
Whilst you are there you can go the the nature reserve under the Humber Bridge, there are some great sculptures hidden down there.
