Easter Egg Rolling in Preston 2016

Egg Rolling is a big Easter tradition, going back over 150 years, that takes place in Preston every Easter Monday. 

Every Easter brings a different programme of events, including a traditional Easter bonnet making workshop and competition.

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 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.

Easter bonet workshops.
