One of Preston’s favourite traditions returns to the grassy slopes of Avenham Park once more.Advertisement
An expanded Easter Egg Rolling – which dates back to Victorian times – takes place on Easter Bank Holiday Monday.
Thousands are expected to have a go at rolling their eggs, chocolate and painted, down the steep slopes in the grade-II listed park.
As well as egg rolling Preston City Council has workshops, street theatre and an expanded food stall offering planned.
Egg rolling has taken place on Bank Holiday Monday (17 April) for decades.
Egg rolls start at 11am and happen on the hour every hour through to 4pm.
Children have the chance to create an Easter bonnet and enter the competition to win best bonnet.
The workshops run at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
The bonnet competition has registration open until 2pm and the competition takes place at 2.15pm.
