You’re invited to an Easter Egg-stravaganza

Wednesday, March 20, 2024

Wakefield Council are excited to announce a cracking Easter programme packed with free family fun, at all six markets in the district over the school holidays.

Visitors can enjoy Easter-themed craft activities and even meet the Easter Bunny. They will also be able to explore all the markets have to offer while taking part in the egg hunt, with prizes awarded for children who complete it.

“We know the school holidays can sometimes feel like a long time to keep the kids entertained so come along and enjoy some free, fun Easter activities at one of our markets.

“And while you’re there, why not browse the stalls and support our fantastic local market traders.”

Cllr Michael Graham
