The Lindt Big Egg Hunt 2013

6 March 2013

The museum is very egg-cited to be part of The Lindt Big Egg Hunt when it visits Manchester in March.

More than 100 giant Easter eggs are being hidden across Manchester between Thursday 7 March and Wednesday 13 March as part of The Lindt Big Egg Hunt – an incredible event challenging the public to take on the world’s biggest Easter egg hunt while raising vital funds for leading children’s charity, Action for Children.

The two and-a-half-foot high fibreglass eggs have been designed by leading artists and designers including Sam Taylor-Johnson (formerly Taylor-Wood), Alexis Harding, Billy Childish and Michael Petry and also feature some of the UK’s best-loved children’s characters including Peter Rabbit, Peppa Pig, Moshi Monsters, SpongeBob SquarePants, Thomas the Tank Engine and Ben 10.  The museum will be home to two eggs – Tickled Pink by Amy Stephens and Lyra May designed by Yuki Aruga. The eggs will be in venues across Manchester as well as in the street – try and find all 101!

The eggs are touring the UK with stops in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow and will be returning to London in time for Easter. For even more magic and family fun, Lindt will be rewarding busy hunters by giving out thousands of Lindt Gold Bunnies and Lindor truffles – delicious reasons to join in the egg hunting fun.

All money raised from the hunt will go directly to Action for Children, which runs over 600 services across the UK, supporting more than 250,000 children, young people, parents and carers each year.
