Bluewater will also be hosting an Easter Egg Trail from Saturday 1st to Monday 17th April. Hunt for 12 giant eggs hidden throughout the mall in order to claim a yummy chocolate prize.
The chocolate fun continues, as the iconic Lindt Gold Bunny is back to welcome shoppers arriving at Bluewater. From Friday 7th to Saturday 15th April, children are invited to discover the magic of Easter as they count gold bunny figures, crawl through a grass-covered warren and enjoy delicious treats from Lindt.
