Real Easter Egg at Downton Abbey

The Real Easter Egg, which includes a copy of the Easter story in the box, is to feature in the Highclere Castle Easter Egg hunt on 21st April 2019. Highclere Castle is best known for doubling as Downton Abbey in the popular TV series.

More than 1,500 children are expected to attend and there will be a full size Real Easter Egg for children who take part in the hunt. It is expected to be the UK’s largest single event Fairtrade Easter Egg hunt this year. 

David Marshall, from the Meaningful Chocolate Company, said; “We are delighted to supply the eggs for this world famous place. It’s a great opportunity to promote Fairtrade, there is a copy of the Easter story inside each box and a competition to win £200 worth of book vouchers. If you can’t make it to Highclere, you can buy your own Real Easter Egg from Tesco, ASDA, Morrisons, Waitrose or directly from our website
