Painswick’s annual Easter Egg Hunt is returning in 2022! Hooray! Save the date and round up all of your friends: Saturday 16th April 2022. Please take a look below for more information on the now-legendary Egg Hunt, our one and only annual fundraiser. The trail starts at The Painswick Centre


Painswick Easter Egg Hunt is an annual community event run by the Painswick Playgroup Committee to raise vital funds for Painswick Playgroup. It always takes place on Easter Saturday 12 – 4pm and takes in the beauty that Painswick has to offer.

In addition this year, we have extended the trail so you can complete it on any day between Good Friday and Easter Monday. (The cakes, hot drinks, raffle etc will not be available on Friday 15th, Sunday 17th or Monday 18th April – only on Saturday 16th April 2022).

We have around 20 beautifully designed eggs hiding all around the village for you and your little ones to find (with the help of our map), and every completed trail is entered into a prize draw. As well as our fun trail, we have:

  • Face painting
  • Hot drinks
  • Luxury Raffle, featuring fantastic prizes
  • Homemade cake stall
  • Chocolate & Bottle tombola

Throughout the day there will be special appearances by the Easter Bunny, with plenty of opportunities to have your photo taken with him.

Maps are available in advance, please check back here for more updates nearer the time. 

Plenty of free parking is available in the village.

Painswick Easter Egg Hunt has become a firmly established event in the local calendar and attracts visitors from all over Gloucestershire and beyond. It’s a great day out and always has a fantastic atmosphere.  All money raised goes directly back to Painswick Playgroup to improve facilities for our children.
