Specsavers Broadmead has teamed up with the Methodist Church and John Wesley Chapel to help host the fourth annual Easter hunt (Saturday 28 March – Saturday 11 April).
The Lion, The Witch, and Specsavers
Inspired by C. S. Lewis’ much-loved classic – The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – there will be 30 lions in and around the Bristol Shopping Quarter, each one designed and decorated by a range of Bristol primary schools, representing a character or scene from the book.
The story has been chosen as the theme for this year’s Easter hunt as it uses a 'vibrant, fictional setting to introduce basic concepts of the Christian faith and the Easter story'. C. S. Lewis created the story to 'break through some of the religious jargon and to make faith more accessible and enjoyable'.
How to get involved
Children are welcome to collect a map from the store or from John Wesley Chapel. When all 30 lions have been found and their trail map has been returned to the New Rooms (John Wesley Chapel), they will receive a chocolate treat.
As well as the lion hunt, a series of activities have been planned:
Thursday 2 April – 1-4pm
A Narnia activity afternoon at the New Rooms, including a screening of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Admission is free, but donations will be welcomed.
Saturday 4 April – All Day
The Ark will be on The Podium. There will be free craft activities on board the bus, plus space to chat, to find out what The Ark does and why they do it.
Saturday 11 April – 12-4pm
Free craft activities in the New Rooms, with a final opportunity to decorate a miniature lion.
