The traditional game of Easter Egg Rolling occurs in many parts of the world but the best is in Preston, Lancashire on Easter Monday.

British Marbles championship, Tinsley Green, Sussex, Good Friday - this event has been staged at the Greyhound Pub since at least 1932. An entertaining day out watching the finest exponents of the grand game of marbles
Don't forget the Australian Marbles Championship on April 13 at Parkes Golf Club
Bottle-kicking and Hare Pie Scramble - truly bizarre Easter Monday rugby type game involving 3 bottles, the population of two villages, mass scrums and of course hare pie.
Bottle Kicking and Hare Pie Scrambling - brilliant account of this strange game
