The Big Egg HuntThe Big Egg Hunt is back and this time it's taking place in five cities across the UK beginning and ending in London with two chances to hunt down the giant eggs from Tuesday 12th February to Sunday 17th February and then again from Friday 22nd March to Monday 1st April. Covent Garden, where you can pick up a guide book and get advice from one the 'Eggsperts', is the best place to start your hunt. With 101 eggs to track down, this is a great way to discover hidden parts of the city while looking for the eggs which have been decorated by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers. Find Humpty Dumpty and you'll be in with a chance of winning a year's supply of Lindt chocolate. Visit the official website to download a map or family activity pack, view the egg designs and bid on an egg to raise funds for Action for Children.
