Head into Waterlow Park and help search for the Haft-sin eggs!

Celebrated around the spring equinox, Nowruz heralds the transition from winter to spring in the northern hemisphere. This moment of equilibrium between night and day signifies a fresh start. Preparations for Nowruz commence weeks ahead, involving an extensive cleaning of homes— from carpets to windows, with every family member contributing. This thorough spring cleaning serves as a symbolic act, washing away the remnants of the past year to make room for positive changes in the upcoming one.

A distinctive feature of Nowruz is the arrangement of a special table, known as 'haft-seen,' adorned with seven foods and spices, each with its own symbolism which combine to create a tapestry of wishes and aspirations for the year ahead.

Join in and follow the trail to find hidden eggs, whilst learning about the ingredients for the Haft-sin! Each egg represents an item, and can be discovered by following the clues on the trail map. Good luck!
