Participants must use the app to discover Easter eggs at various locations.

By simply finding the posters and scanning the AR markers using their smartphone camera, families can witness an Easter egg appearing right before their eyes.

Complete the trail by finding all of the eggs and scanning each marker by 16 April to be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a voucher which can be redeemed against a number of outlets on Old Town High Street.
