Easter Market set to attract big crowds to Springfest at Gloucester Quays

Up to 100,000 people are expected to visit the colourful Easter Weekend Spring Market which opens at Gloucester Quays tomorrow, Good Friday, and continues until Easter Monday.

The market is part of Springfest, two weeks of fun and fantastic entertainment for all the family at Gloucester Quays until April 23.

For lovers of good food and fabulous craft products, the Easter Weekend Spring Market is an absolute must.

Entry is free and there will be 100 stalls offering everything from plants, flowers, garden gadgets, furniture and hand-crafted jewellery to delicious chocolate, cakes, fine food and drinks.

Many of the eye-catching items are not available on the high street and come from local producers.

There will also be a vintage funfair to enjoy, featuring traditional rides and sideshows, including the ever-popular helter skelter, mini carousel and traditional swing boats.

The Easter Weekend Spring Market is open from 10am - 6pm daily (closing 5pm Sunday) and also features a Spring-themed pop-up mini golf attraction.

Springfest fortnight is the longest-running Easter event ever held at Gloucester Quays and includes a thrilling Adventure Zone, 'Bunny Run' Easter Trail and amazing photo opportunities at the rapidly expanding outlet centre.

The Adventure Zone in Orchard Square is guaranteed to get pulses racing for the adventurous at heart with a High Ropes Climbing Challenge, Thrilling Cave Adventure and Ninja Assault Course.

For the little ones there will be lawn games with plenty of room for parents to relax.

The Bunny Run Easter Trail invites visitors to find the bunny located in different stores around Gloucester Quays. Those who complete the trail will get a chocolate treat and the chance to win a pass for a family of four to Cadbury's World.

Gloucester Quays will be celebrating Spring Fashions with a free "curious garden" installation which will provide a dramatic floral backdrop for the perfect photo opportunity or selfie. The garden area will also include pop up entertainment and there will be a chance to 'Win A Spring Wardrobe' worth £200 in an exclusive competition.
