Egg-cellent Bank Holiday Easter Eggstravaganza!

Published on Thursday, 20th April 2017

Easter is a time to celebrate spring arriving, indulge in chocolate treats and revel in extra time with family and friends.

Last weekend Nuneaton and Bedworth town centres were alive with Easter fun, there was something for all the family. Children enjoyed working out riddles and clues for our Bunny Scavenger Hunt, getting creative and colourful in our Egg colouring workshops and being blown away with some egg-cellent balloon modelling – plus much, much more! The mobile climbing tower was also on hand for those seeking adventure.

Molly's Coffee House, new to Nuneaton town on Bridge Street had a storm of excited children eager to collect their free chocolate bunnies after completing the towns Bunny Hunt. Molly's Coffee House owner said:

Children really seemed to enjoy all the activities on offer over the Easter Bank Holiday. It was nice to encourage families into the town and as a new business here we were really pleased to help support it.

Children also got to see their creative designs of Easter Eggs on display in the Ropewalk shopping centre hanging from the special Easter Tree, which was made by Level 3 Engineering students from North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.

This Easter is especially significant for Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery as it marks an important anniversary, it’s been 100 years since first opening its doors back in 1917! Fun museum activities over the Easter period included BFG-themed workshops – putting together a giant mask, making giants ears or even creating a walking giant! There were story tellers to keep the little ones entertained and if you were lucky enough to drop in on bank holiday Monday there was the opportunity to make a bouncing Easter Rabbit to take home too!

It’s fair to say it’s been a jam packed bank holiday weekend of fun, all in preparation for lots more town centre activities, games and entertainment ready for half term and beyond. Keep an eye out ready for a timetable of fun coming this summer!
