Easter 'Eggs-travaganza' at the House of Manannan 6 April 2006

Between Saturday 8th April and Sunday 23rd April, Manx National Heritage will be holding an Easter Egg Hunt at the House of Manannan. Kayleigh Popelier

The Easter Egg Hunt is the second in a series of school holiday quizzes planned for the House of Manannan this year and will include a treasure trail, where both fun and educational quiz questions can be answered on route round the House of Manannan.

All children joining in the fun will enjoy an Easter-themed surprise and participants completing the Egg Hunt will be entered into a prize draw for one of two giant Easter Eggs, handmade by Manx chocolate makers, Davison’s of Peel.

Nick Corkill, Western Area Site Manager for Manx National Heritage, said:

“The Easter Egg Hunt promises to be fun for children of all ages, as they search for clues in the galleries throughout the House of Manannan. Entry sheets will be available at the House of Manannan throughout the week, with the winning entries being drawn on Monday 24th April when there will be an ‘eggs-travagant’ prize waiting for the lucky winners”.

Standing by Peel Harbour, the House of Manannan provides an absorbing day out for all of the family. Through state of the art display techniques the Island’s Celtic, Viking and Maritime past is revealed by Manannan, mythological sea-god and protector of the Island.

The House of Manannan is part of the award-winning Story of Mann and is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. Normal admission prices apply.
