Traditional Easter Celebrations
Blists Hill Victorian Town
29 Mar 2013 – 1 Apr 2013
Join the residents of Blists Hill Victorian Town as they celebrate Easter over the Bank holiday weekend of 29 March - 1 April.
Join the residents at Blists Hill Victorian Town as they celebrate Easter over the Bank holiday from Friday 29 March to Monday 1 April.
A highlight will be the unusual pastime of egg dancing, which will take place opposite the Print Shop. Once blindfolded, the townsfolk will dance across the street without stepping on eggs that are carefully placed along their route. After the demonstration, you are invited to have-a-go with mini Easter eggs and lollies as rewards for all who complete the course without stepping on an egg!
You can also take part in the ‘hunt-the-chick’ competition, following a trail of clues around the recreated Victorian town; join a sing-along in the New Inn Public House and try hands-on workshops as well as watch open-air performances by the Prince Albert Players and Kaleidoscope Theatre.
Families should come wearing their best Easter Bonnets, as the Town’s Milliner will be judging the finest creations at 2pm in the Pleasure Gardens; there will be a prize for the winner and every youngster taking part receives a small Easter egg.
