Fabulous Food And A Petting Zoo At Boxpark This Easter Weekend

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Boxpark Croydon.

Forget the roast lamb and simnel cake — this Easter, ring the changes and head to Boxpark Croydon for a cracking events line-up. With kids' activities, a record store day and even a pop-up petting zoo, Boxpark has something for all ages this Easter weekend.

Croydon is the newest addition to the Boxpark family, and it's a food-focused affair, with over 80 traders to choose from. The venue also plays hosts to tons of exciting events, and from 14-16 April — Easter weekend — there's even more to see and do than usual.

Good Friday from 10am-12pm is kiddie heaven — there's a petting zoo, soft play, storytelling and the customary egg hunt to keep them happy. Listen to the London Symphony Orchestra perform in the main event space at 1pm, before grabbing a bite from one of the many traders.

There'll be special foodie deals over the weekend — how does What the Pitta's vegan doner kebab with chips sound? Or are you more into Lazeez Tapas's grilled wrap and Lebanese beer for under a tenner? If Asian cuisine is up your street, you'll be glad to hear that BaoBao will be serving up two Bao buns and a bubble tea for just £8.50.

Get your sugar hit with The Breakfast Club's epic Easter pancake special — this is full-on chocolate heaven consisting of American pancakes, Crème Egg chocolate sauce and vanilla crème, with a Crème Egg on the side (available from 10-23 April).

You'll need to do plenty of dancing to work off that chocolate — luckily Saturday is all about the music. Record Store Day will see a baby disco from 11am-1pm, and enlightening workshops and industry talks from 2-5pm.

In the evening there'll be a vinyl club at Boxbar, and throughout the day you can swap with like-minded music fans at Boxpark's vinyl exchange. Sunday has even more music lined-up, with a Funk Me: Easter Special at Boxbar until the early hours.

From Mexican to Malaysian, fine dining to street food, Boxpark Croydon most definitely has the eats, and with its music line-up, it also has the beats this Easter. Head south of the river for records, kids entertainment and plenty of food — it's bound to be cracking.
