Everyone is hopping into the spirit of Easter with different events going on throughout the borough.

The Liberty shopping centre has prepared a week of treats for children to enjoy from Saturday, including arts and crafts workshops, a bungee trampoline and the opportunity to have a fun family photo in a giant Easter egg.

Shoppers will also be able to take part in an egg-citing egg hunt in search of chocolate sweets which will be hidden in shop windows – participants will be in with a chance of winning some tasty mini prizes.

Jonathan Poole, centre manager at The Liberty, said: “It’s set to be a great week, we’ve put together an extensive programme of activities, most of which are free of charge, suitable for all ages, and guaranteed to help tire out the kids ahead of a relaxing Easter Sunday.”

But children will not be the only ones to celebrate Easter as the Queen’s Theatre will be commemorating the occasion with the dramatic Hornchurch passion play which will be based on the last days of Jesus’ life on Good Friday (April 3).

The evening will begin at 7.30pm at the community venue. For more details call 07593 778576.

Families can go to the Old Chapel, at the Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School, in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, and experiment with their more creative side at the Spring Craft Fair next Saturday (April 4).

Harold Hill community centre, in Gooshays Drive, Harold Hill will be also be welcoming guests to a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed disco Eggs-travaganza with disco music, a chocolate fountain, face painting and competitions.

Admission fees start from £5.
