Traditional Easter Celebrations

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Join the residents of Blists Hill Victorian Town as they celebrate Easter over the Bank holiday weekend of 18 – 21 April.

Join the residents at Blists Hill Victorian Town as they celebrate Easter over the Bank holiday weekend from Friday 18 to Monday 21April.

A highlight will be the unusual pastime of egg dancing, which will take place twice a day 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, everyone can have-a-go with mini Easter eggs and lollies as rewards for completing the course without stepping on an egg!

Come wearing your best Easter Bonnet, as the Town’s milliner will be judging the finest creations at 2pm in the Pleasure Gardens; there will be prizes for the best adult and child entries and everyone taking part receives a small Easter egg.

There’s also a ‘hunt-the-chick’ competition, following a trail of clues around the recreated Victorian town; hands-on workshops such as candle dipping in the goods shed and open-air performances by the Prince Albert Players.
