The Calmer Llama Easter Trail at The Bristol Shopping Quarter | 6 April - 22 April 2019Posted on: 29 Mar 2019
Love Easter, arts and… llamas!? Discover this unlikely trio this Easter with The Bristol Shopping Quarter’s Calmer Llama trail from 6 to 22 April 2019.
As always, The Bristol Shopping Quarter are gearing up for Easter, but not in the way you might expect. Following last year’s fabulous Flamingo Fiesta, The Quarter is now ready to welcome the arrival of 52 decorated llamas just in time for the half-term holidays.
From Saturday 6 April until Monday 22 April, a vibrant array of lovely llamas – decorated by Bristol’s very own school and youth groups – will be installed across the Quarter to form a unique Easter trail.
Maps revealing the llama locations will be available from The New Room in Broadmead, Specsavers on Merchant Street, Barber Brown on Bond Street, and the customer service desk in Cabot Circus. Grab a map, find the llamas, and then head to The New Room for crafts and chocolate treats! It's the perfect way to spend a Spring afternoon with the family.
So, why 'calmer llamas'? This year, the team behind the trail (the Broadmead BID team, The Ark Bus and John Wesley’s Chapel) have joined together to celebrate themes of resilience and determination in the face of uncertain times.
The Ark Bus team will be running family craft activities on Tuesday 9 and Tuesday 16 April between 11 am and 1 pm. All are welcome, and activities are free, but donations are welcome (of course!)
Don’t have the time to complete the trail? No problem! We all know Easter is a busy time. The New Room will host a Calmer Llama celebration week from Tuesday 23 to Tuesday 30 April when all llamas will be displayed together. But don't settle: we're sure you can squeeze some Easter shopping at The Quarter and keep the kids entertained with this fab trail!
