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.

As the residential owner directly managing 1,439 private rental homes in East Village, Get Living London aims to make renting refreshingly straightforward and convenient.

This no fees approach can save renters up to £350.
Provides long term stability with built-in flexibility: Residents are offered one to three year tenancies, with residents-only break clauses after six months.
