The Big Beautiful Egg Hunt

24th March – 2nd April


Free event, donations welcome.


Something really rather special is waiting to be discovered….



Lancaster will soon be home to The Big Beautiful Egg Hunt, an Easter event set to charm and delight famlies young and old.


Pick up a trail from Lancaster City Museum or the Visitor Information Centre and set out on your quest to find all the beautifully hand crafted egg sculptures which have been individually designed and painted by talented artists and community groups.  

Having completed the trail Egg Hunters will all be rewarded with a chocolate treat along with some fantastic prizes to be won while helping to raise vital funds for local people affected by cancer and other life limiting conditions.


If you happen to fall in love with one of the egg sculptures there will be an opportunity to purchase it after the Easter Holidays. More information on this to follow….
