Easter Egg Hunt in Paddington

Get ready for an eggstraordinary Easter celebration at Merchant Square, Paddington’s canalside haven, on Friday, 5th April from 11 am to 4 pm.

This year’s annual Easter Egg Hunt promises to be a cracking good time, with the brilliant Bakehouse Factory events agency leading the Humpty Dumpty-themed festivities at Floating Pocket Park.

The egg-citing adventure will feature the delightfully dippy characters of The Egg Soldiers, Humpty Dumpty, and Queen Yolko Oh-No, who will bring the experience to life in a series of fun-filled family story sessions.

Children and their grown-ups will work together to find all the broken egg pieces, gather the King’s Men, and put the nearly eight-foot-tall Humpty back together again before the King notices his buddy has cracked up.

“We’re egg-static to partner with Bakehouse Factory and bring this enchanting Humpty Dumpty adventure to Merchant Square,” said Echo Pan, Marketing and Events Coordinator. “It’s a unique opportunity for families to immerse themselves in a whimsical Easter tale while enjoying the beauty of our pedestrianised, canalside setting.”

Queen Yolko Oh-No will oversee a delightfully dippy training school, teaching little helpers how to be the best possible Egg Soldiers. Families who successfully put Humpty back together will receive a royally delicious chocolate egg for their contribution.

The Humpty Dumpty Easter Egg Hunt will be divided into six 45-minute sessions throughout the day, with limited spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis.

But the egg-stravaganza doesn’t stop there! Families can also embark on an Easter Bunny Hunt throughout Merchant Square, searching for Easter yard signs at various landmarks. Successful hunters will be rewarded with a chocolate prize.

Cosmic Charity will be on-site hosting free activities and encouraging donations, while a pop-up food truck and live performances will add to the lively atmosphere.

“We invite visitors to capture the egg-citement through pictures and share their best moments on Instagram with #MSQEaster2024 and @merchantsquareldn for a chance to win £100 gift card from Pizza Express,” added Echo Pan, Marketing and Events Coordinator.

With its convenient location adjacent to Paddington Tube Station and a short walk from Edgware Road Station, Merchant Square offers the perfect setting for an egg-cellent family day out.

Don’t miss this egg-stra special event! Head to Merchant Square on Friday, 5th April, and join the Humpty Dumpty adventure for a cracking good time. The event is free to attend on a first come first served basis, no need to book in advance.
