The Easter Story comes to Formby

A group of schoolchildren on the Easter Story walk encountering a Roman Centurion in the woods at Formby

On Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd March 2016 National Trust, in partnership with In Another Place, are offering schools the chance to walk back in time to imagine the very first Easter. Your class or group will get to meet some of the characters from the Easter Story and understand this well known narrative from a new perspective.

You will be guided along paths, through the woodlands, where your group or class will follow the Easter Story, meeting characters along the way. The walk will last approximately 40 minutes, however classes and groups that have booked on to the session will be welcome to stay on site afterwards.
