29th – 31st March 2013

The Roller Bunny

For the sixth year running the LFNS is pleased to announce the Easter Eggstravaganza weekend!

The Easter Eggstravaganza is a themed family event taking place over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. It is a fun, free event aimed at all levels of skaters from beginners to advanced, incorporating street-skating, freestyle and general mucking about. The event kicks off the summer season of skating, as well as encouraging new participants to try out this exciting, dynamic, and increasingly popular sport. Last year’s events were attended by over 600 people of all ages, including international visitors and we are expecting more to join in this year.

Over the Easter Holiday weekend (29th – 31st March) we are planning 4 days of skating fun for all abilities and for all the family. The final schedule is still being developed, but a rough outline is now available. Check back closer to the day for more information!
