UK Easter Events

Try something different this Easter with a selection of 3 UK events occurring this year!

Easter, ‘Pasch’, ‘Resurrection Sunday’ and the first bank holiday of the year is only around the corner…the special day (Sunday 27th March) is what we celebrate in honour of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Some people go to church, others get fancy with Easter egg hunts, Easter bunny hunts and a delicious excuse in joining competitions for eating the most choccies!

So, to make this year’s Easter break a unique one, I have come up with the top 3 Easter events in the UK you can nibble away at…mmm!

1) Epping Ongar Railway Easter Egg Hunt, London

A great favourite for the kids… introduces a warm welcome to ‘Bertie’ the bunny, who will be planting away a feast of Easter eggs at the familiar heritage railway in the South-West of Essex!

The extremely long but fun Easter egg hunt event will be hosted before and after Easter day on Friday 25th March – Monday 28th March, from midday. Kids can hunt on down with a variety of a whopping 131,579 eggs scurried away, all the way to the end of the railway track- from Ongar to Coopersale… a mixture of clues set by Bertie himself should level the suspense!

That’s not all! You can also have the opportunity of receiving a great Easter themed face painting, such as, a cheeky chick or secret bunny from the talented ‘Cre8tive Faces’, for only £3 or you can leap over and get bouncing with Bertie’s own lively disco!

Otherwise, you can end the day at one of London’s quality eateries, including, Café Mosaic, Loch Fyne Restaurant, Café Spice, Louie Pauls or Wo Fat restaurant.

Boogie on and receive your family tickets at the North Weald booking office at North Weald Station for £39 but for cheaper tickets make sure you order them online in advance.

2) Egg Dancing, egg rolling and Easter bonnet parade

In the heart of Shropshire and at one of the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums brings you a crazy Easter weekend at ‘Blists Hill Victorian Town’, near Ironbridge on Friday 25th March – Monday 28th March from 10 am – 5pm with the likes of a different Easter experience with ‘Victorian style egg dancing’ involving a challenge of being blindfolded whilst walking down a trial full of eggs -which are not to be cracked!… the winner can take delight with a tasty prize of chocolate treats. There will also be an Easter hunt…summed up with an awesome pouncing parade!

Other Victorian Easter bunnies can hop along to the ‘Goods Shed’ where you can paint on eggs and get really decorative, colourful candle dipping…where you can prepare yourself for the egg rolling race or notable egg and spoon race.

To make this event a more memorable one you should take advantage of the ticket offers allowing you unlimited admission into all ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums!

3) Over Farm Market, Henry’s Easter Adventure, Gloucester

Otherwise, you can chuckle away at the farms own hilarious free puppet show which will be running three times a day, take part in the rubber duck race, get creative with face painting and arts and crafts…with all this excitement you can clench your thirst at the ‘Le Petit Café’ with a selection of hot and cold beverages or you can get really cheeky with the scrumptious burgers and pastries or the variety of mouth-watering cakes.
