Easter Celebrations | From 10 April

Chocolate eggs, Easter bunnies and a variety of specialty chocolate desserts will hop into Harvest Buffet, so don’t miss the spectacle of the giant 2-metre tall Easter egg which takes centre stage at M&G Café and Bar. Made of 70kg of pure dark chocolate, this eggnormous Easter creation will take our talented chocolatiers more than 20 hours to create.
