UPDATE: About a zillion people are googling this blog asking “where is blackheath fun fair?”, so here’s a map. Not sure about the circus location though.. If it’s wrong, let me know in the comments. I’ll try to make a more accurate version later. Come by train (parking is terrible in Blackheath), turn left out of the station and walk up the hill. When you get to the heath, you’ll see the fair.

Black Vanilla Easter Egg Hunt tomorrow

Black Vanilla Easter Egg Hunt
Black Vanilla (the new-ish ice cream gelataria shop in the village) is having an easter egg hunt tomorrow. You can see the posters in their window, and the full range of posters are also on Lost In Style’s blog (the people who designed Black Vanilla’s branding).

There’s nothing on Black Vanilla’s website about the egg hunt, but it was mentioned on their twitter account a couple of days back.

It starts at 9am, and from the look of the designer’s site, a series of little tags will be hidden around the village. Then we get to hunt for them, and bring them to the shop in return for free goodies, such as:

  • 1st prize – a huge easter egg
  • 2nd prize – large tub of gelato
  • 3rd prize – medium tub of gelato
  • 4th prize – bambino gelato cone

It says there’s a maximum of 5 tags per winner, so presumably there will be quite a few dotted around.

(PS: Back from hols…)
