CH1ChesterBID hatches plan for Easter activities


The Easter Eggsplorer Citywide Egg Hunt is returning to Chester city centre between Saturday 24th March and Sunday 15th April 2018.

The Easter Bunny will be making his annual stop-off in Chester, hiding coloured eggs in selected city centre retailers as part of CH1ChesterBID’s citywide egg hunt.

Organised especially for youngsters in the region, the free family-favourite activity launches tomorrow (Saturday 24th April).

CH1ChesterBID is once again behind the celebration and the city’s business improvement district (BID) is encouraging families to become city ‘eggs-plorers’ and discover at least ten coloured eggs hidden within businesses around the city centre.

All participants will receive an Easter treat for each completed entry form, with one lucky winner winning a £50 prize bundle from The Entertainer.

Thirty stores across the city centre have signed up to be involved in the citywide hunt – including: Cath Kidston, Back Alley Music, Claire House Hospice, Sofa Workshop, White Stuff and Weasel & The Bug.

CH1ChesterBID will also be hosting a selection of free Easter films for the family to enjoy at The Grosvenor Museum.

Tickets are available to watch the animated family favourite HOP or the new live-action remake of the Disney classic The Jungle Book.

CH1ChesterBID events manager, Emily Ghazarian said: “It’s wonderful to be bringing back such a popular free activity that we know families enjoy getting involved in.

“For children of any age, it’s a fun-filled adventure and it also allows parents or grandparents the chance to enjoy Chester in the spring time and venture into a range shops and businesses they may not have visited before.

“Easter is an occasion we look forward to every year at CH1ChesterBID and it’s great to have so many retailers involved in the activities again this year. It promises to be an ‘egg-citing’ few days in the city centre!”

Entry forms can be collected from any store hiding eggs, or from the Visitor Information Centre on Northgate Street, where families can also collect their sweet treat once they’ve found at least ten eggs.
