Stephanie Rhoden GLL libraries partnership manager with Easter chicks

Easter half-term activities in town centres

There are treasure trails with animated animals, free pantomimes, crazy golf and town centre fun this Easter holiday.

Dudley Council is running a free Easter trail during the school holidays.

From Monday 25 March to Sunday 7 April, kids will be able to help Charlie the Chick to find his six missing friends around Dudley, Brierley Hill, Sedgley and Stourbridge town centres.

Families can collect a trail sheet from their main library and look for Charlie the Chick and their friends in the town. As well as ticking off each character on their sheet they will also find a QR code with each clue which when scanned shows one of Charlie’s friends doing a little dance.

Once the trail is completed they return the trail sheet to the library to receive a sticker and a Charlie the Chick soft toy (subject to availability).

Funtime Theatre will perform a free Easter pantomime of Goldilocks! in Brierley Hill, Stourbridge and Sedgley on the following dates:

  1. Monday 25 March, 11am. Beacon Centre, Wolverhampton Road East, Sedgley WV4 6AZ
  2. Monday 25 March, 2pm. The Talbot Hotel, 136 High St, Stourbridge DY8 1DW
  3. Saturday 30 March, 11am. Brierley Hill Market Hall, High St, Brierley Hill DY5 3AP

There’s no need to book, just turn up.

This trail and free pantomime tickets are part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
