To Do List: HELLO!'s pick of events and new releases

It's finally Easter weekend! Now, not only can you indulge again in whatever you may have given up for lent - whether it was chocolate or a cheeky tipple - but it's also the ideal opportunity to get out with the family. From an Easter Egg hunt perfect for children of all ages, to the best books and films of the week, HELLO!'s pick of events and new releases will help you indulge in all of the best things the UK has to offer...


If you're London-based why not head to the chic Knightsbridge area and the Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel for a special afternoon tea based around last week's release of the family favourite Cinderella - or if it's a hunt of a different kind you are after, London's Regent Street will be hosting an Easter Cocktail Hunt. It's a fun yet grownup alternative to buying a chocolate Easter Egg - but even if you do still crave some chocolate, then you're in luck, as some of the cocktails do indeed come with a sweet treat.

A different kind of Easter Egg hunt is happening across the country at National Trust properties. Perfect for those who fancy a day trip out of the city, over a quarter of a million Cadbury eggs have been delivered to National Trust properties - but with thousands of eggs to store, staff had to get creative about where to conceal the eggs. From grandfather clocks and pianos, to vases and bookcases - how many will you find?

If you're after some culture, the acclaimed drama Twelve Angry Men makes its way to the Theatre Royal Bath with Oscar-nominated actor Tom Conti playing juror number eight. For a different kind of culture, head to your local cineplex for the seventh outing of the hugely popular Fast & Furious franchise. It will be an emotional watch for many fans, as its star Paul Walker tragically died in a car accident in the middle of filming, but the film is also one of the franchises most action-packed and exciting films to date.

If after all of that you need some relaxation time, then Tracy Rees, winner of the inaugural Richard and Judy Search for a Bestseller competition, will see the release of her debut novel Amy Snow on Thursday 9 April. A gripping and sad tale set in the 19th Century, a life-changing discovery awaits Amy after her only friend passes away.
