|Where:||Preston, Lancs at Avenham Park|
|Time:||10am-4pm with first egg roll at 11.|
Eggs are rolled down the slopes at Avenham Park every Easter Monday – in the past these were traditional decorated boiled eggs but now are often of the chocolate variety! As well as the egg-rolling , the event hosts an Easter Bonnet competition, Lancashire food & drink and plenty of entertainments for a full day out.
Expect large crowds especially if it’s sunny (there are reports of up to 40,000 attendees). We went early in the day which, combined with poor weather, kept the crowds small.
Other egg rolling events are widespread but this one has history!
In 2017 it will take place on Monday April 17th.
