One of Preston’s biggest annual events returns to mark the tradition of rolling Easter Eggs down the grassy slopes of Avenham Park.Advertisement
Egg rolling is often blighted by gale-force winds and large puddles at the bottom of the hill.

With egg rolls on the hour from 11am to 4pm it’s expected to be a bumper turnout for the Preston tradition.
