Kids Easter Eggs-travaganza

Hundreds of children are expected to hop down to the Easter Egg Hunt at Hove’s Hangleton Manor on Good Friday 14 April from 11am to 1pm.

This very popular annual family event – now in its 9th year – is organised by Rotary in Brighton and Hove. For just a £4 entry fee children hunt for Easter characters in the Manor’s ancient walled gardens, record them on a list and collect their full sized Easter Egg from the Dovecote.

But egg hunting is not all on offer as professional children’s entertainers, Fairy Dust Events, are booked for some eggtastic dance fun along with the City Mayor, Pete West, who will judge the popular Easter Bonnet Competition.

Families can try their hand at the clown striker and whack-a-rat, toy pig racing with Brighton Lions, egg decorating and have lots of fun at other attractions including a BBQ and tombola.

Hangleton Manor will be open for business and families can enjoy having a drink in the lovely gardens whilst the kids have fun.

All monies raised will benefit Brighton Emmaus, part of the national network who enable people to move on from homelessness.

Rotarian, Maria Rayner, managing this event, says: “We love welcoming everyone to our really Egg-citing Egg Hunt. The kids just love hunting through the daffodils for the Easter characters and the adults have a good time too! This is just one of the fabulous family events we organise.”
