Thousands enjoy Easter Egg Trail in Edenvilla Park!

Edenvilla Park was hopping with ‘egg’-citement this Easter with over a thousand local boys and girls enjoying the sun, fun and terrific treats at the FREE Easter Egg Trail event.

Organised as part of the Shared Process and Community Engagement Project (SPACE) funded through the EU’s PEACE III Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, the park was transformed into a magical Wonderland suitable for Alice and her host of friends.

Families, equipped with their map and answer sheet, embarked on a journey around the surroundings of the park and its two beautiful secret gardens solving a series of questions and were rewarded for their efforts with a delicious Easter egg. The entertainment didn’t end there – with art workshops, fun lawn games, face painting, glitter tattoos, photo opportunities, dancing in the disco dome with Teddy Bear and the Easter Bunny and Alice and her friends – the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and the hilariously silly Tweddle Dum and Tweddle Dee meeting and entertaining everyone along the way – the Wonderland at Edenvilla Park was truly the fun place to be!

We had so much fun helping deliver this event! From coming up with the initial idea to promoting it, shooting the promo video and seeing around 5000 people attend and enjoy themselves- it really was a treat! It’s events like this that really gets our creative juices flowing and we loved that no idea was too ‘mad’ for this one!

This was a pretty exciting time as the promotional materials had the involvement of the last Mayor of Craigavon, Cllr Colin Mccosker and the event itself was attending by the first Mayor of the new Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.
It was a pleasure to work alongside the Council, as well as our partners in the SPACE project Different Tracks Global and Venturei Network.

Here are the elements of this project which BNL were happy to deliver on:

  • Coming up with the event concept
  • Design of Clue boards, Answer sheet and map
  • Design of all promotional materials including PVC banner, flyers and posters
  • Scripting and filming of promotional videos (1 pre-event and 1 post-event)
  • Scripting and booking of all performers
