A cracking project

Egg-cellent news for egg-lovers – Fabergé is hosting an egg-straordinary egg-stravaganza of an egg-hunt on the streets of London later this month, and they’re not even yolking.

Alright, that’s enough egg punning. The hunt, which starts on 21 February, will see 200 giant Easter eggs placed throughout the capital, each one created by a different artist or designer.

Contributors include Zandra Rhodes, Ridley Scott, The Chapman Brothers and Diane Von Furstenberg. Following the hunt, the eggs will be available to buy at auction, with proceeds going to charities Action for Children and Elephant Family.

In addition, the event organisers are hoping to break not one, but two Guinness World Records. The first for the most participants in an Easter egg hunt and the second for the world’s most expensive chocolate egg, designed by William Curley.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for Rachel Waldron’s cute soldier egg, as well as artist Benjamin Shine’s red post-box egg, which is designed to function as a real letterbox.
