Egg rolling on Easter Monday 2018

Egg Rolling returns to Avenham and Miller Parks this Easter Monday, with a special appearance from CBeebies stars Cook and Line.


The duo, who star in Swashbuckle, will bring their fun songs and slapstick comedy to the Egg Rolling event, which has been running since Victorian times.

Live music, fairground rides, food, Henna artists and the Easter Bonnet workshops and competition will also feature at the free event.

In addition there will be entertainment from various acts including Hopalot, an astro-bunny looking for a suitable science test site, and fantasy walkabout characters The Meanderthals.

One of the city’s longest-standing traditions, Easter Egg Rolling sees Prestonians send their Easter eggs flying down Avenham Park hill.
