West London families will be excited to learn that the annual Merchant Square Easter Egg Hunt will be returning on Wednesday 5th April.
Online PR News – 18-March-2023 – London, United Kingdom – This year there’s an extra special twist as characters from Alice in Wonderland will be bringing the experience to life. The Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and some of her loyal Playing Card subjects will be in full character and interacting with visitors to the egg hunt.
To earn their Easter chocolates, groups of scavengers will have 30 minutes to help Alice and the White Rabbit to find all the lost objects of the party puzzle including the White Rabbit’s pocket watch.
There will be a meet and greet with the characters from 12.30pm until 2:00pm where visitors can have their photo taken with their favourite Alice in Wonderland character.
The Queen of Hearts’ favourite game of flamingo croquet will be taking place on the lawn and party games such as ‘Guess How Many Eggs in the Jar’ will be taking place throughout the day.
Prizes are up for grabs too with an Alice in Wonderland-themed colouring-in competition and a Best Photo contest for visitors to enter using the hashtag #MSQEaster2023 on Instagram.
All the activities are free but volunteers from COSMIC charity will be collecting donations to help fund the children’s critical care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital just across Paddington Basin.
The fun will start at 11am until 4pm and no booking is required for the meet and greet, flamingo croquet or colouring-in competition although visitors may need to queue for their turn.
There will be limited availability for the Easter Egg Hunt for walk-ins on the day and Merchant Square staff will be on hand to help visitors on a first come first served basis.
