It’s Easter Weekend!

April 7, 2012

IT’S EASTER and that means it’s time for EXTRA LFNS GOODNESS!

JOIN US FRIDAY AT 7 PM – that’s the the earlier-than-usual time of 7 PM – for the LONG GOOD FRIDAY NIGHT SKATE. It’s the Easter special once a year CIRCLE LINE SKATE! Your circle line service is 50% longer than the usual Friday night service, at 18 miles total journey length, departing one hour earlier than usual for a total of 3 hours fun. The LFNS Circle Line Service will be boarding at 7pm from the usual platform at Hyde Park Corner. Departure will be Eastbound, skipping all stops till London Liverpool St where late connecting passengers will be able to join. Service continues Westbound skipping all stops to Craven Terrace, adjacent to Paddington Station, arriving at 9pm. Last departure from Craven Terrace is Westbound towards Notting Hill and Kensington Church St, then returning to Hyde Park Corner at 10pm where this service terminates. This year’s inflation indexed fare increases mean you pay exactly 0% more than last year’s price of £0.00. Yes folks all classes of travel are free on this service, plan your journey now. All ABOOAAARRDDD!

JOIN US SUNDAY AT 2 PM for the flippety floppiest, hippety hoppiest, fluffy pink eared and feather-boa-est EASTER BUNNY STROLL. Break out your bunny costumes and your mad hats, for Easter Bunny Stroll is the first big costume skate of the year. Join all manner of menagerie departing from Serpentine Road in Hyde Park (the usual Sunday Stroll starting point) for a 2 hour jaunt around central London with a half time break. Don’t forget your camera!

JOIN US SUNDAY AT 4.30 PM on the Serpentine Road in Hyde Park for the annual EASTER BUNNY EGG N SPOON RACES. We here at LFNS will be giving away free chocolate Easter eggs … to those willing to skate through a set of cones and back while carrying said egg on a spoon and engaging in near mortal competition with another person doing the same thing. Hang around after the Easter Bunny Stroll to join in. There is nothing quite so satisfying as the crack of an opponent’s egg hitting the tarmac, even if it did require some small bending of the rules. Chocolate shall be spilled, ohhhh yes!

JOIN US ON SUNDAY EVENING AT 7.30 PM for the EASTER BUNNY PARTY at the Smithfield Tavern, 105 Charterhouse Street, Smithfield, London, EC1M 6HR. Skater DJs will lay down tunes into the early hours as bunnies shake their tails on the dancefloor. Come and have a drink, compare war wounds and tell stories about how you crushed the other guy at egg n spoon races. Or get some boogie on. Easter Bunny Party will rock!!

REMEMBER that LFNS is run entirely by volunteers. We have 4 channels of communication – our website at, our Facebook page, our Twitter feed, and our – rather intermittent – email newsletter called ‘Week On Wheels‘. Most of our income comes from donations for LondonSantaSkate tickets at Xmas. We don’t do lessons, we certainly don’t charge money for lessons, and anybody claiming we do might be telling you a bit of a fib. So have a care what you do with your money on the Internet.

And finally, if you can’t be skating with us here in London, have a really fab time wherever you are and a REALLY GREAT EASTER!!
