MERRY Hill is pulling out all the stops for a cracking half-term this Easter.

The Brierley Hill shopping centre will be choc-full of free activities to keep youngsters entertained.

Children's favourite, Peppa Pig will make an appearance at the centre on Monday (April 14) for her special Muddy Puddles party, taking place at Quest, near Debenhams, at 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

Wristbands are free but must be collected from Quest from 9am on the day of the event.

Hopalot Bunny, a loveable version of the Thornton's chocolate treat will be bouncing in to store on Tuesday (April 15) and on Good Friday there will be a Muppets face painting session, in celebration of the release of Muppets Most Wanted, currently showing at the centre’s Odeon cinema.

A Muppets-themed treasure hunt will also take place at the centre every day from April 12-25.
