The Big Egg Hunt 2013

Now in its second year, the world’s biggest Easter egg hunt challenges the public to find 101 eggs across the UK, whilst raising vital funds for leading children’s charity, Action for Children.

Over 100 giant Easter eggs will be hidden in cities across the UK as part of The Lindt Big Egg Hunt from Tuesday 12th February until Easter.  This year, the iconic Lindt Gold Bunny will be joining the fun, giving hunters the chance to win one of 100 years’ worth of chocolate. Thousands of Lindt Gold Bunnies and Lindor truffles will also be handed out as part of the egg-stravaganza.

The eggs have been designed by a host of leading artists including Sam Taylor-Johnson, Annie Kevans and Billy Childish. Myung Nam-An - who has exhiited with us inb Brighton and London has also designed an egg called Dragon's Eye.  Other eggs will feature some of the UK’s best loved children’s characters such as Moshi Monsters, Peppa Pig and Sponge Bob Square Pants.

Locals and tourists alike can bid for their favourite eggs in an online auction, or get interactive with the hunt by using their mobile phones to find out more about the eggs and their artists.

For the first time, this year The Lindt Big Egg Hunt will be going on tour from London to Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow and back to London in time for Easter.
