For the sixth year running young visitors to Broadmead have been invited to take part in a hunt for decorated animals. The theme for this year’s trail is ‘Memorable Moments’ because elephants never forget, with each elephant being named after a different well-known person. The 40 elephants, decorated by children from local primary schools and groups, will be hidden in shops around Broadmead and The Galleries for young visitors to find from Saturday 8 until Sunday 23 April, after which they will all be on display in The New Room until 30 April. Maps showing their locations are available from The New Room/John Wesley Chapel (opposite Boots), from Specsavers on Merchant Street, from the information desk at Cabot Circus, and from Barber Brown on Bond Street. All children completing the zebra trail and making a note of each zebra’s name (they are all named after famous Bristolians, past and present) can collect a chocolate reward from The New Room/John Wesley Chapel. Free activity sessions will run at The New Room on Tuesday 11, Saturday 15 and Tuesday 18 April; in Cabot Circus on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 April; and in The Galleries on Saturday 8 and Thursday 20 April. Additionally, there will be a giant colouring-in elephant in Central Space at Cabot Circus throughout the school holidays. For further information click HERE.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
