Over the Easter weekend, there was plenty of eggciting fun to be had at Pescod Square.

From cracking craft workshops to shell-shocking shows and eye-opening offers to great giveaways, we were delighted to see so many happy bunnies making the most of the sunshine and our stores.

Getting Crafty

Pescod Square hosted an Easter-themed craft workshop on Saturday 20th April, tailormade for little ones of 3 years and over. The craft workshop was hosted by Crafty Crew and gave children the opportunity to try their hand at creative techniques, using specialist and high-quality paints and accessories.

Over 120 children hopped along to the dedicated crafting station on the day to design and decorate wooden bunny toys to take home and keep, just in time for Easter. All materials were provided, and help was on hand from experienced supervisors.

Attendees gave great feedback following on from their crafting exploits. One parent said: “The crafting team were really friendly, nice, helpful and chatty. I always bring my little boy to the crafting events – he really enjoys making and colouring things.”

Another said: “It was very welcoming. We arrived early and everything was well set out. It’s a good idea with the children being very involved. Olivia loved making her rabbit!”


Pescod Square’s social media followers were also invited to take part in a competition in association with the event, for the chance to win an Easter hamper of goodies worth £50. The competition organically reached nearly 16,000 people on social media with the winner, Penny Heaton, being selected at random.

Penny collected her hamper on Saturday, along with her daughter.

Jason Vickers from Pescod Square’s marketing team said: “The Easter weekend saw an increase in visitors to Pescod Square, due to the eggcellent entertainment on offer and the cracking offers in our stores. We’re delighted with all the positive feedback we received over the Bank Holiday weekend and we look forward to hosting more activities and shows over the summer months.”
