Mr Finniebaker’s Easter Holiday Factory Trail
April 2 - April 18Free
Join us for a super family day out this Easter.
10 of the Easter Bunny’s woodland co-workers have been spotted in these parts and it’s your job to find them! Families in Andover are invited to take part in this fantastic, free trail around our Town Centre.
10 of Andover’s Independent shops will be placing a character decal sticker in their shop windows. As you stop at each character you’ll be directed to take a ‘scene selfie’ if you wish to. This means taking selfies with instructions like ‘look amazed’ or ‘look curious’. Learn the names and stories of all 10 characters and then once you’ve visited them all you’ll be able to create your own, personalised ‘selfie storybook’ with your selfies as part of the story – a lovely keepsake to remember your day out.
To take part simply:
- Start the trail by going to InAndover Easter Trail to see the map
- Hunt down each of the woodland factory workers
- Scan their QR codes with your smartphone (To do this just open your camera app and hold it directly in front of the QR code on the Character decal in the shop window as though you were taking a photo and a notification will show on your screen, click this and then the character will appear on your screen with further instructions!),Alternatively type the URLs, printed under the QR codes, directly into your browser’s address bar), then you’ll learn about the characters and be able to take your selfies. Follow the instructions that are given to you when their picture comes up.
- When you’ve found them all, upload your selfies and create your free Easter Factory Storybook – with you as the stars! We’d love to see your selfies! Please share them using the hashtag #andovereaster2021
