Free city centre egg hunt for families to enjoy this Easter
Families can follow a fun trail through the West End of Plymouth city centre during the upcoming school holidays, all for the chance to win one of three brilliant prizes.
There are ten eggs to find on the Spring Time Egg Hunt, all hiding in the windows of shops and cafes around Frankfort Gate, Cornwall Street, Market Avenue and New George Street.
Each egg has been beautifully decorated by the creative team at Barbican Theatre, including Artistic Director Chloe Georgakis and Artists Jasmine Fassenfelt and Georgia Nethercott.
The eggs have been inspired by a different local habitat during spring time, and the animals that live there, so look out for bunnies hiding in flower meadows and bees making honey in their hive.
There’s a letter to find on each egg, which when put together spell out a word. Find them all and complete the online form on the Visit Plymouth website for the chance to win one of three fantastic prizes:
First prize is a meal for a family of four at Brewdog Plymouth (up to the value of £100) and four tickets to see a film of your choice at Cineworld
Second prize is a meal for family of four at Las Iguanas Plymouth (up to the value of £80)
Third prize is a Hotel Chocolat milk chocolate Easter egg
The egg hunt will run from 9 to 24 April, providing the perfect way to keep children occupied during the Easter holidays. Download a map from the Visit Plymouth website or collect a leaflet from one of the participating retailers: Moments Café, Daamn Good Bakes, Tribal Voice, Rise Bakery, Crystals, Fresh Flower Scent, Coffee Time, Futon Company, Cake Box or Power Plant Café.
Steve Hughes, Chief Executive of Plymouth City Centre Company who created the trail, said: “We’re delighted to have worked with the Barbican Theatre team to create this fun, free spring time trail all focused around the West End, our proud independent quarter.
“I’d encourage you to make a day of it – come in and follow the egg hunt, browse the shops and stop for a bite to eat at one of our fantastic cafes or restaurants. The city centre has so much to offer, and our local high street needs your support now more than ever after the difficulties created by the pandemic.”
