What is Egg Rolling?
Egg Rolling is a big Easter tradition, going back over 150 years, that takes place on Avenham and Miller Parks in Preston every Easter Monday. Each year brings an eclectic mix of workshops, street theatre and live music. Past events have seen magicians, a giant hippopotamus, arts and crafts, unusual storytelling, explorers and much more.
Although every Easter brings a different programme of events, you can guarantee the traditional Easter bonnet making workshop and Easter bonnet competition will always feature, with the best hats winning a prize.
However you spend your day, no visit to Preston’s Egg rolling is complete without bringing your own Easter egg and rolling it down the hill with hundreds of other people. You can find a quiet spot and roll with the family or join in with the official egg rolls on the hour.
It may sound wacky and exciting but that’s because it is! With each year differing from the next, you never know what to expect. You are, however, guaranteed a great Easter Monday out.
