LFNS Free Easter Skate Events 2014
Easter Weekend Free Skate Events
19th – 21st April 2014
For the seventh 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 yearâ€™s events were attended by over 500 people of all ages, including international visitors and we are expecting more to join in this year.
Over the Easter Holiday weekend (19th â€“ 21st April 2014) we are planning 3 days of skating fun for all abilities and for all the family. There maybe additional details yet to be added and this would have been done by Easter week. The main LFNS free Easter skate events schedule details are outlined below.
- All events are free to attend.
- Do check back regularly for any last minute updates.
- In case of rain, the skate events will move to Monday.
- Please spread the word to help grow our skating community.
- Come join the Easter party even if you don’t do the bunnyskate.

Weâ€™ll be giving away vouchers for skate lessons and other goodies to some lucky Egg & Spoon racers.
