The weekend is fast approaching and for those still deciding how to spend their Friday through to Sunday, we pick 5 of the best ways to spend your weekend in Somerset

1. Mells Daffodil Festival

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, Mells Daffodil Festival will once again provide a fun and exciting day out for all the family on Easter Monday. There will be great food and drink, exciting street stalls, live music and entertainment, and fun, family-friendly activities. This year's festival will be opened by ITV weather man and Dancing on Ice star, Alex Beresford.

2. Rock of Ages at Bristol Hippodrome

Smash hit musical Rock of Ages comes to the Bristol Hippodrome for one week only – and you enjoy the production from Tuesday, April 16-Saturday, April 20. Blue's Antony Costa and Pop Idol alumni Zoe Birkett star in the ultimate 80s rock 'n' roll smash hit, with over 25 classic rock anthems played by a fantastic live band.

3. The Time Machine, Mumblecrust Theatre in Clevedon

This brilliant new family show and re-imagining of HG Wells' thrilling sci-fi classic will be performed at the Theatre Shop's Mumblecrust Theatre on April 19 and 20, and features lashings of humour, award-winning puppetry, music and storytelling.

4. Annual Easter Fun Day at Secret World Wildlife Rescue

There are plenty of activities on offer at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill from April 20-22. As well as getting to meet some of the animals who live there, over the three days expect family-friendly games and nature activities, painting your own pixie door, BBQ and market stalls.

5. Once Upon A Time – Easter Trail at Forde Abbey, Chard

Characters straight from your favourite fairytales will be making an appearance at Forde Abbey over the Easter weekend (April 19-22). Search for clues and solve the challenges, with friendly faces bound to capture your imagination along the way. Chocolately treats await everyone who participates.
