Setting A Good Eggsample – Cracking Easter Deals!
With the Easter holidays approaching fast, families are being urged to chuck the choccy in favour of a more cultural Easter.
Here are some of the alternative top picks for a cracking Easter:
Guernsey under Nazi Occupation
The Guernsey Heritage Festival kicks off Easter weekend, this year shining a light on life in the Bailiwick of Guernsey under German rule during World War II. With six weeks of guided walks and cycle rides, events at prominent heritage sites, talks, family fun days and exclusive access to some of Guernsey’s WWII landmarks, visitors will learn what life was like during the five-year occupation.

Tenerife – Exotic Parades
Easter celebrations on Tenerife are known for their magnificent and expressive parades and most notably the procession in the town of Adeje, which re-enacts the last few days of Jesus’ life. Hundreds of local people take part, wearing colourful robes, carrying sculptures of religious figures adorned with intricate flower arrangements, and singing hymns to represent the symbolic role of religion in Easter celebrations in Tenerife.
The five-star Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife, located just along the coast from Adeje, provides the perfect base for rocking, relaxing and exploring the island with the family.

On the close of Good Friday, the island comes to life with beach parties, musical performances and streets filled with local vendors.
