The Mall Blackburn’s first major Easter event for over two years is already proving extremely popular as little visitors let their creativity run wild with a host of free craft activities in an Alice in Wonderland-inspired space.
Families are making the most of the school holidays, despite the weather, with indoor activities taking place every day until Friday 15th April from 11am until 4pm.
In addition to the activities, The Mall is also working with Secret Santa to collect Easter eggs that will be distributed to families in need this Easter. Donations can be made at The Ask Me Point in Victoria Court.
Don’t be “late for a very important date!”
The Easter schedule includes:
- Friday 8th: Stand to attention and get hands on by building playing card guardsman puppets
- Saturday 9th: Glitter tattoos are back in time for the weekend celebrations
- Sunday 10th: Transform a wooden spoon into a snazzy white rabbit puppet
- Monday 11th: Decorate delightful cupcakes with delicious candies
- Tuesday 12th: Design a stunning hanging suncatcher and colour with special glass paint pens
- Wednesday 13th: An Easter make-over is in store with our face painters
- Thursday 14th: Last chance to get creative with glitter tattoos
- Friday 15th: A very Good Friday is on offer with traditional Easter basket design.
Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “After not being able to host Easter activities for the last couple of years due to the Pandemic, we’re delighted to see families once again enjoying a packed schedule of spring entertainment.
“With costs rising for most things at the moment, we’re proud to provide a free option for entertaining the kids and encouraging them to nurture their creativity.
“It’s also great to be supporting Phil and his wonderful team at Secret Santa with the Easter egg appeal and we have already had lots of donations. All donations, no matter how big or small, will help to bring a smile to those who are most in need.”
Secret Santa is a not-for-profit organisation based in The Mall. In recent years it has expanded from providing Christmas presents for underprivileged children to becoming a lifeline for people of all ages and backgrounds in a host of ways.
