Hop to it to enjoy Bunny Egg Hunt this Easter

11th April 2022

Families are invited to embark on an Easter adventure this April, as the Bunny Egg Hunt comes to Leeds city centre.

The free, fun, interactive, family-friendly event, brought to the city by LeedsBID and Welcome to Leeds in partnership with Lindt, give children a seasonal opportunity to scour Leeds city centre in search of 12 giant Easter eggs. Each egg is individually decorated and hidden in a key retail location in the city.

To start the adventure, all participants need to do is pick up a map from the Easter Bunny Egg Garden located at Victoria Leeds on Sidney Street.

As well as taking on the challenge of cracking the clues and uncovering the location of the eggs, children can get creative by colouring the design details of each egg on the map as part of their hunt. Once all 12 eggs have been discovered and their design details copied onto the map, intrepid young hunters can return to the garden to pick up a treat from a member of the Easter bunny event team – who will be on hand to help in the garden. There’ll also be the chance to capture a fun family photo at a special Easter egg themed selfie spot.

Andrew Cooper, LeedsBID Chief Executive, said:

“As we see Leeds city centre coming back to life, LeedsBID is animating the high street with fun, interactive activities for families to enjoy during key school holiday periods. Working with key retail partners, we hope to provide that added appeal to encourage people to step back in to rediscover the city centre once again.”

Emily Webb, Lindt Customer Marketing Executive, said:

“We are really excited to be supporting the Easter Bunny Egg Hunt in and around Leeds city centre. We are so excited to see this wonderful activation go live and thankful to be involved. Happy hunting.”

The Easter Bunny Egg Hunt runs daily (with the exception of Easter Sunday) from Friday 8th April until Monday 18th April 2022 between 11am and 4pm. Easter Bunny Egg Hunt maps can be picked up from the Bunny Egg Garden on Sidney Street.
