Nicknamed the Eggs Factor, a panel of ‘celebrity’ judges will pick the top jar of eggs and a whole afternoon of celebrations is planned.
Charlie Thomas, manager of the Griffin, said she was very excited about the competition.
She said: “I’m really pleased with how many people have entered.
“We’ve had some very interesting recipes, including chilli, chocolate and raspberry, cinnamon and vanilla, and I heard a rumour that one couple, while pickling their eggs, have lost their sink plug.”
The Eggs Factor is the first of its kind, and the winner will walk away with a golden eggcup, a champion’s T-shirt.
Miss Thomas said the day would not be complete without musicians, in the shape of Ali George’s new project,The Little Musgraves.
There will also be a barbecue, with real ale sausages with an Easter twist and a vegetarian variety.
All proceeds from the pickled eggs competition will be donated to the Dorothy House charity based at Winsley.
Miss Thomas added: “It will be a great day for all and we look forward to welcoming anyone who wishes to come along.”
