EGGxtra Good Time By All

5th April 2018

We held a day of hopping good day of fun at our BIG Easter Event! The event took place in Market Square on Thursday 29th March and was the first of many events in the city for Lancaster BID. The event pulled in the crowds, who came to watch amazing aerial performances by the wonderful Easter characters. The event was a great success, with footfall in the city centre being up 15.2% compared to the previous year.

We also supported CancerCare and their BIG Beautiful Egg Hunt, by providing trail booklets, marketing flyers and chocolate treats, so that everyone could join in with the Easter egg hunt over the Easter break. The eggs from the trail, which were kindly sponsored by local businesses, will now be going to auction to raise even more funds for CancerCare and their vital work. Around 223 families took part in the trail, and hunted down all 13 eggs, which were beautifully decorated by local artist.

Look out for our upcoming events from Lancaster BID, including Dino-Day 2, Lancaster Festa Italia, Student Night and the return of our Winter In The City Campaign, including The Christmas Lights Switch On, Light Up Lancaster, Chilli Fiesta and a visit from Santa and his reindeer.
