While the forecast for Easter 2018 is mixed, at least there won’t be another Beast from the East! So, if you’re looking for ideas on what to see and do, here are some fun events in London this weekend.
Top events in London this Easter
1. Easter Party – Pop Brixton
Experience an Easter bonanza at this super-trendy party space in vibrant Brixton, south London, on Easter Sunday. Feel free to show off your dancing moves with a breakdancing class or take part in the hip hop jigsaw puzzle.
How to get there: Pop Brixton is just moments from Brixton station, which is the southern terminus of the Victoria line and is next to Brixton Railway Station.
2. Easter Egg hunts – two suggestions:
One of the biggest Easter egg hunts is the Peter Rabbit trail at Kew Gardens in west London, where families can search for clues among beautiful daffodils from Good Friday all the way until 15th April. You can get here via Kew Gardens station (District, Overground), which is about 500 metres from Victoria Gate, one of the main entrances.
Or head to St Katharine Docks, where you can collect your Easter Egg Hunt map to find all your clues before you return to the Marina Reception for an ‘egg-cellent’ chocolate prize. This dock is within walking distance of Tower Gateway DLR station, Tower Hill (Circle, District) and the Tower of London, one of our most popular London event venues.
3. The Horniman Easter Fair, near Dulwich/Forest Hill
Held on Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April, the Horniman Easter Fair will include a special ‘Ugly Duckling’ storytelling performance by the Sandal Sticks Theatre. It will also offer a superb Easter trail, fun workshops, and plenty of other festivities such as an arts and crafts market and a bouncy castle.
How to get there: The Horniman Museum can be reached directly via buses 176, 185, 197, 356, P4, or via Forest Hill station, about 5 to 10 minutes away by foot
4. The Passion of Jesus – Trafalgar Square
On Good Friday, thousands of people will come to Trafalgar Square to watch this captivating portrayal of the final days of Jesus. Held between midday and 3:15pm, this 90-minute production is free to enter.
How to get there: Trafalgar Square is very well served by buses and is just a few minutes from Charing Cross station (Bakerloo, Northern, rail).
