Get Living London is encouraging residents to get into the spirit of Easter with a fun-packed programme of activities on offer at East Village for the whole family to enjoy. With 67 acres of green space, visitors and residents can make the most of the spring sunshine at East Village and get involved with a host of Easter activities to keep kids and big kids entertained!
The ‘Bunny Run’
At the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 4 April, the ‘Bunny Run’ will give families the chance to live-up to their Olympic setting and showcase their athletic prowess. Families can choose from a 1K, 3K or 5K circuit and can walk, run or hop their way around! The Easter Bunny will even make a visit, and all participants will finish with a unique finisher’s medal and post-race refreshments. The event is open to all ages and abilities, and there will also be a Little Bunny Fun Run for children age 8 and younger. The race will start at 10am at the Timber Lodge Café and costs £5 to enter.
Easter Dance Party
The 7 April will provide a chance for the whole family to show off their best moves at the Copper Box Arena with an exciting Easter Dance Party. Hosted by Natasha Khamjani and with music from DJ Egg-Cellent, families will hit the dance floor accompanied by the Easter Bunny for an afternoon of fabulous dance classes! For the big kids and young adults, there will also be exclusive Get Ur Freak On dance sessions during the event.
Guess How Much I Love You – 20 Anniversary
