  • Date: Sat 1st Apr 2023
  • Time: 9:00 am
  • Location: Chantry Place / 40-46 St Stephens Street / Norwich / NR1 3SH

Chick out Chantry Place Norwich this Easter, from Saturday 1st April to Sunday 16th April 2023, for its free family Easter trail around the Centre and meet the RSPB team on select days throughout the school holidays when they give out free sunflower packs and let little ones get hands on with nature.

Families can pick up a free trail map for the Chantry Place Easter Eggstravaganza trail from Langleys and then follow the posters to collect letters which will spell out an Easter themed word. A competition prize is on offer too for one lucky winner worth over £100, including Easter eggs, Jellycat toys and an H&M voucher, with some bird houses too up for grabs for runners up. Everyone who completes the trail can also pick up a sticker too from Langleys at the end.

Chantry Place will also be welcoming the RSPB to Chantry Place on Tuesday 4th, Friday 7th, Saturday 8th, Sunday 9th and Thursday 13th April for more free family fun. Visitors will be able to pick up some free sunflower seed packs for a fun competition, meet the RSPB team and visit its nature display table featuring owl pellets, snake skins and bones and more. They can be found on the lower ground floor near Langleys.

Paul McCarthy, general manager at Chantry Place, said: “This year we are planning free events in the school holidays for families to enjoy and this self-led chick trail will be enjoyed by little ones as they search for all the letters, then get some help to unscramble them into an Easter-themed word. We are looking forward to being visited by the RSPB too so that visitors can have fun learning and discovering more about nature and the work the charity does in protecting habitats and saving species.”

Freya Stuart, Membership Venues Officer at the RSPB, commented: “The RSPB is thrilled to be visiting Chantry Place on selected dates over Easter when we will be sharing an exciting, family-friendly grow challenge. Drop by to pick up your free Sunflower Race Pack (subject to availability) and take part in your very own Sunflower Race at home! April is the perfect time to plant sunflowers! Whose sunflower will be the tallest? Who will have the biggest flower? And who will produce the most sunflower seeds to feed hungry garden birds? Visit our ‘nature pod’ next to Langleys toy shop on the lower ground floor opposite Boots to pick up your pack, learn some amazing nature facts and discover more about the RSPB. Nature is in crisis. Together we can save it!”

At Chantry Place, visitors can discover a range of Easter gifts and treats, including delicious Easter eggs from Hotel Chocolat and décor from Flying Tiger. The shopping centre is also home to numerous restaurants including Wagamamas, The Real Greek, YO!
