Easter fever is back once again in Duke of York Square to celebrate chocolate, overseen by the statue of Sir Hans Sloane, inventor of chocolate no less! It’s the perfect excuse to indulge in some sweet treats.
Whether you’re a chocoholic or are simply after something special to share, there will be plenty of choice for everyone. Independent artisans will be offering a decadent selection of treats including tasty truffles, mouth-watering macaroons and ‘egg-celent’ Easter eggs. The chocolate market will be running alongside the Square’s regular fine food market between 10am and 4pm.

If you’re looking for a pretty niche way to celebrate Easter, then why not join the Easter crucifixion-themed pub crawl? You’ll be asked to dress like Jesus and you’ll only be visiting biblically named pubs, with the first stop being The Trinity. The costume checklist includes a long white tunic, long wig, and a (rub off) beard. A small donation is required and will be donated to charity. Amen to that.
The Trinity, 202-206 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1JX
Have no fear the #houseofholi is back and it’s bigger, better and brighter than ever before. Prepare to leave the dull, grey city behind you. Jump into your protective white suit and step into the brightness at the House of Holi for thirty minutes of paint-pelting, colourful powdered wonderland! Nestled amongst the skyscrapers, the award winning restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen hosts this energetic event, bringing a vibrant injection of colour to the urban environment via it’s purpose build party pod between 4th – 12th march. Tickets are priced at £8 per person for your colours and overalls or £15 for cocktails and canapes too.

London, are you ready for this jelly? Be prepared for a seven-metre high bouncy castle, made to wobble just like the real stuff, which will be making an appearance outside City Hall to help launch Candy Crush Jelly Saga. We reckon it’ll be just as addictive as the original. Big kids (adults) only are invited to jump as high as possible to be in with a chance of winning prizes.
