Kirkwall BID – Easter Egg Hunt @ Kirkwall
Apr 11 all-day

Easter Egg Hunt
Yet again, Orkney’s very own Easter Bunny, Helga, has been hiding 61 Kirkwall BID’s precious eggs around town and we need your help to find them. Ok, so we actually asked Helga to hide the eggs because looking for them is loads of fun and a great activity for the all the family. And there are prizes too!

BIDEaster_EggIf you’d like to enter the hunt – and we really hope you will – you’ll have to pick up a special form from the Kirkwall BID gazebo during Spring Fling. Forms are also available from Trek & Travel, Blue Joe’s, WHB Sutherland’s Pharmacy and the Orkney Library & Archive or download it here kirkwall-easter-egg-hunt-entry-form.

Exactly where each egg is hidden within the shop is a secret, but that’s where the fun begins. Helga will be making an appearance at the Kirkwall BID gazebo, but she’ll definitely not tell anyone where the eggs are hidden.!

Find a minimum of 20 eggs, if you can, and then return your completed entry form to Trek & Travel, Blue Joe’s, WHB Sutherland’s Pharmacy by Tuesday 18th April. Each completed entry form will receive a free Easter themed reward, and be entered into a prize draw to win a £20 gift voucher and a Giddy Limit t-shirt & mug from the Orcadian Bookshop. Terms & Conditions apply.

Oceanallover presents Sea Hames @ Tankerness House Gardens
Apr 29 @ 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm
SAT 29 APR
TANKERNESS HOUSE GARDENS (KIRKWALL) 15:30

DURATION: 45mins

FREE LIVE PERFORMANCE, MUSIC AND COSTUME
INSPIRED BY ORKNEY’S FESTIVAL OF THE HORSE AND BOYS’ PLOUGHING MATCH

Sea Hames is the latest outdoor performance project from leading site specific theatre company Oceanallover. Inspired by ‘The Festival of the Horse and Boys’ Ploughing Match’ this multi-disciplinary performance fuses sonic composition, compelling performance and intricate costume to explore the mythology and iconography of horse, plough and the sea.

In 1984 two Clydesdale horses jumped the gate to their field and charged down to the beach at Billia Croo on Orkney. They stood up on their hind hooves and danced in the low mid-summer sun. This project begins with those two horses and the sea; about freedom and creativity, the persistence of memory, tradition and innovation, attention to detail and wild brush-strokes.

As these are outdoor performances audience members are advised to dress for the weather.

Part of Stromness’ 200 years Per Mare celebrations, sponsored by Stromness Community Council
