There is a daily programme of lighthearted family activities that delight in the mysteries and wonders of a traditional springtime.
Around the old buildings and watercourses of Livingston Mill there are mischievous sprites who will reveal secrets of fire and flowing water.
Children can create masks that will change them into green boys and girls, with tickely mystical wands that have the power to surprise. Scribble down your secret hopes for the year to come, tie these to your decorated wishing stick and cast this into the flowing water of the lade, or take wool, ribbon and slices of fabric and decorate the clootie trees. Out in the gardens, craft a living bower to take home and nurture, while on the farm, many animals will be in their springtime finery, with colourful collars and jangling bells.
