Curious Investigators Easter Trail




Hidden in windows across Lancaster are Curious Chicks: can you find them? Fill in a trail map and send it back for the chance to win a prize! 

You can just print a trail and head out straight away; or for maximum fun, book to take part in our live Zoom adventure with Investigator Toni first… 

The Chicks will be in residence from Saturday 3 April to Sunday 11 April: there are three walks to choose from, so get investigating! 

Want to be part of the fun and help make local refugee families feel more welcome? If you live on one of the map routes below, simply print a poster and pop it in your window. You could even add a Curious Chick of your own: find out how to make one.


We’re enormously grateful to all our volunteers!
