Serpentine Rd, London W2 2UH
Easter Bunny Skate
While strict observers of the faith are celebrating the miraculous return of The Saviour by tucking into Archbishop of York approved Easter Eggs, the rest of the country is wondering what to do with itself on the only day apart from Christmas when most of the shops are shut.
This particular year the weather’s not that brilliant anyway, but that hasn’t stopped a group of dodgy-bearded white robed young individuals going on their annual challenge of visiting all central London’s pubs that have religiously appropriate names – all in the aid of charity, of course. And possibly to get drunk as well. And, like Chaucer’s little gathering from 600-odd years, their pilgrimage begins in a tavern in Borough High Street.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the capital, the in-line skaters who have established their own, somewhat less alcoholic, tour of the city most Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons, are having a little Easter celebration of their own: having a special Easter Bunny themed Sunday Stroll, which, after taking in the sights of a quieter-than-usual West End, is followed up with some roller-themed party games alongside the Serpentine afterwards.
