There’s plenty of Easter delights to see in Lancaster and Morecambe during the school holidays.

A number of activities throughout the area are set to take place for families and visitors.

If you are visiting Lancaster this weekend then why not head down to The Assembly Rooms, on King Street, where traders will be handing out free mini Easter eggs to customers on April 4. Full-sized eggs will be given out for the 25th, 50th and 75th customer through the door.

A short walk away Marketgate shopping centre will be running an Easter egg hunt between 10am - 4pm on Saturday April 4.

To join collect an entry form on the day from promotional staff.

If you want to venture out a little further RSPB Leighton Moss will be inviting budding naturists to uncover a secret underwater world.

Their ‘What lives beneath’ pond dipping event will be held between April 2 - 9. There are two pond dipping sessions to choose from either 11am-12.30pm or 1.30-3pm. The cost is £5 per child (wildlife explorer members £4) and the activity is recommended for children over the age of five, who must be accompanied by an adult (no charge for adults). Booking is essential on 01524 701601.

For the arty-type Lancaster Arts City’s digital campaign, “The Great and Good First Friday” will encourage people to submit pictures of Lancaster asking them what they think celebrates the area.

The top four entrants will win a prize, including a pair of tickets to the Dukes’s Williamson Park show Oliver Twist, arts materials from Studio Arts, two tickets to a gig at More Music or Easter chocolate from Green Close.

To enter post a picture and words on Lancaster Arts City’s Facebook or Twitter page, using the hashtag #goodfirstfriday.

You can also submit by email at greatandgood@artscity.co.uk.

If you are heading over to Morecambe, the Bay Partnership will be holding a photography workshop.

The workshop is best suited to those aged seven and over.

The group will meet in the reception of the Clarendon Hotel, Marine Road West.

Children must be accompanied by an adult and booking is essential at £2 per person.
