Follow The Flock: Easter Trail

The annual Easter Discovery Trail is returning for the school holidays – and this time it’s sheep taking over!

Get ready for the Easter Animal Trail! Pick up a leaflet – How many sheep can you find? Organised in partnership with Broadmead BID and The Ark Bus/Methodist Church

Between April 1st-15th, more than 40 brightly coloured sheep, decorated by local schools and youth groups, will be hiding in the shops throughout Broadmead, Cabot Circus, the Arcade and the Galleries in Bristol Shopping Quarter. Pick up a trail map from us (The New Room/John Wesley’s Chapel), opposite Boots in Broadmead, then see how many you can find – they all have names!

When you have found as many as you can, bring your trail map back to the chapel, spot the final sheep and collect a small chocolate prize. This is a great free event, running throughout the Easter school holidays, organised by the Ark Bus team, the New Room and Bristol Shopping Quarter. The story of Easter is also a story where hope triumphs over adversity, and at a time of great uncertainty and change we felt these themes would resonate with everyone taking part.
