Easter in London

Chocolate, parties and a double bank holiday – here's how to maximise the 2019 Easter weekend in London

There's a lot to like about Easter in London – two whole days off, gratuitous chocolate consumption and if we're lucky, some springtime sunshine (it looks like the Beast from the East might not be paying us a visit after all). You will be spoilt for choice as to how you spend the year's first bank holiday, from spring fairs, to wild nights out, to giant Easter Egg hunts.

Easter Sunday falls on April 21 2019, but there's plenty of Easter-related antics on Good Friday and throughout the weekend in London (Friday April 19 – Monday April 22 2019). Whether you want to spend the weekend clinking glasses, plunging into piles of chocolate eggs or strolling through London in bloom, we've put all the best eggs in one basket for you.

THE CHURCH - 5TH APRIL 2015, 12PM – 6PM

To fulfil those all-important ‘CHURCH’ duties you are required to attend our “holy” service this Easter Sunday at The Church’s place of worship, Electric Brixton.

This service will be led by our favourite Aussie Bogan’s (the masterminds behind Bogan Bingo) who will be reciting passages from their very own Bogan Bible and enticing sinful shenanigans throughout the day – be prepared for some very ungodly language!! The risqué entertainment and stage games is sure to have you running to the confessional box.. “Forgive me father for I have sinned”. Live music from 4pm – 6pm.

@Eva T If I'm going to be honest with you that's a little irreverent... I mean surely you wouldn't appreciate it if someone casually mocked your serious beliefs? Just be considerate that's all I'm saying...
