We are extremely sorry to announce that due to the ongoing risk of coronavirus, we have no choice but to cancel the Painswick Playgroup Easter Egg Hunt 2021.

We very much hope we will be able to bring it back to the village in 2022. Please take a look below for more information on the now-legendary Egg Hunt, our one and only annual fundraiser.

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, at St Mary’s Church Yard and the village centre.

We have around 30 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 rewarded with a chocolate prize. In addition to our fun trail, we have:

  • Bouncy castles
  • Face painting
  • Hot local food
  • Raffle, featuring fantastic prizes
  • Homemade cake stall
  • Chocolate & Bottle tombola
  • Teddy Bear Parachuting from the church spire – don’t forget to bring your favourite cuddly toy!

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.
