Easter Eggstravaganza

Easter was royally celebrated in King’s Lynn’s Vancouver Quarter when crowned children were among hundreds of families taking part in the annual Easter Egg Trail.
Using specially-produced maps, youngsters turned super-sleuth on Saturday to find 15 giant Easter eggs which were hidden around the town centre.
Each egg was displaying something unique which had to be noted on the map before it was returned and exchanged for an Easter egg as well as entry to the shopping centre’s Easter prize draw.
The children’s crowns were hand-made by members of the popular Saturday Club which is run by the Vancouver Quarter team and offers free drop-in sessions with a variety of themes throughout the year for younger visitors.
“Last year’s Easter egg trail proved to be really popular so we knew it had to be included in this year’s calendar of events for 2018,” said Vancouver Quarter events and marketing assistant David Blackmore. “Our Saturday Club workshops are always busy as well and it seemed the perfect idea to team both these free, family-friendly events on Saturday.”
The first three months of this year have already proved busy for the Vancouver Quarter with free children’s workshops for Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day as well as a Mother’s Day photoshoot.
The next event to put in your diary is a special collaboration with the town’s True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum when Saturday Club members will learn about diverse sea life and can make a curious jellyfish.
Looking further ahead, there will be a Father’s Day workshop in June, the popular Bug Trail will return in July and August will see the return of Fairytales and Legends.
Halloween will return to King’s Lynn town centre in October and Santa’s grotto opens in the shopping centre towards the end of November.
