[LONDON – 25 March 2015] Finding a family home in London needn’t be an Olympic-sized challenge with a range of quality family-sized homes available at East Village E20 through residential owner and rental management company, Get Living London. As well as an innovative, fee-free, and flexible way of renting, residents also benefit from a world-class school – Chobham Academy – on their doorstep, and 67 acres of green space for children to play in.
Get Living London residents, and visitors, can make the most of the green space and family-friendly facilities in and around East Village with a whole host of Easter activities. From a ‘Bunny Run’ and free walking trails at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to the 20th anniversary of a beloved picture book at Discover Children’s Story Centre, kids and big kids will have plenty to keep them entertained.
The ‘Bunny Run’
For a fun day out this Easter, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has plenty of free or low-cost activities on the doorstep of East Village. On 4 April, families can choose from a 1K, 3K or 5K ‘Bunny Run’ circuit and walk, run or hop their way around the Park! Open to all ages and abilities – this family event will include a visit from the Easter Bunny, post-race refreshments and a unique finisher’s medal for all participants. 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
On 7 April, the Copper Box Arena will play host to an amazing Easter Dance Party for the whole family. This fun filled event is jam packed with free dance classes with the Easter Bunny, DJ Egg-Cellent and the incredible host Natasha Khamjani. For the teenagers and young adults in the family, there will also be exclusive Get Ur Freak On dance sessions during the event.
Guess How Much I Love You – 20th Anniversary
Discover Children’s Story Centre is the UK’s first hands-on creative literacy centre for children aged 0-11 years and their families. Located just around the corner from East Village, bring your little ones to celebrate the 20th anniversary of much-loved picture book ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. From Friday 3 to Monday 6 April, fans of the book will be able to don their Nutbrown Hare ears, make a new Easter basket and follow the Easter bunny’s trail for a chocolate treat.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park also has four fantastic free trails to guide little explorers around the Park. The ‘Discover the Park’ trail will educate on little known facts about the Park, whilst the ‘London 2012’ trail is great for reliving the excitement of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The ‘Art in the Park’ trail visits all 25 permanent artworks dotted around the Park and ‘Adventures in the Park’ will keep kids active as they navigate. Visitors can pick up a free trail guide from the Park’s Information Point (opposite London Aquatics Centre) which is open daily between 10am – 3pm during the holidays.
Refuel at the local ‘Neighbourhood’ restaurant
After running, hopping, and exploring around East Village, families can refuel at the recently-opened ‘Neighbourhood’ restaurant conveniently located opposite Victory Park. Adults can discover an array of healthy options including smaller plates and delicious superfood salads, whilst children indulge in a dedicated kids’ menu – offering three courses for £12.
