From a family-friendly festival to egg hunts galore, here are 5 of the best events taking place in Wandsworth for Easter.
This is the inaugural event for Kidchella, a kid-focused spearheaded organised by Kidsfusion childcare. The day kicks off with an Easter egg hunt, followed by a dance-off and karaoke competition where little ones can make the most of their sugar high. There’s a soft play assault course, face-painting, caricaturist and braid bar, as well as a ‘Kidchella tuck shop’ and munch supplied by Pizza Express. Throw in some portaloos and you’ve got yourself the authentic festival experience.

Easter egg hunt at Battersea Park Children’s Zoo
All ages are welcome at this Battersea-based egg hunt. A host of brightly coloured eggs are waiting to be found and there are prizes on offer for those who manage to find them all. They probably won’t be hidden in the pig pen…right?

The Tooting Common Egg Hunt
It’s eyes down and baskets at the ready for one of the best egg hunts Wandsworth has to offer. 2-14-year olds can grab a map and follow the clues to find the Easter Bunny’s goodies, and have a good tramp about in the process.

Had enough chocolate for one day? Head to an Easter-themed screening of Peter Rabbit at Clapham Picturehouse. Peter and his three sisters Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail revel in Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden, but when one of McGregor’s relatives suddenly moves in, he’s less than thrilled to discover a family of rabbits in his new home. Will McGregor vanquish his leporine opponent, or will pragmatic Peter and co win the day?
