Why choose a Treasure Hunt?
Where do I go next?
Treasure hunts are fun, and a great way to explore Brighton. Who better to devise one for you than me,a qualified professional guide who lives here?
Suitable for corporate and conference meetings, for team building or purely for fun. Get the conference delegates out of the meeting rooms for a breath of fresh air and some healthy competition.
Each Treasure Hunt is individually designed ,and those I have devised have been very successful, because I ensure each
fulfils the client's brief. Myself and/or a colleague will be on hand throughout to manage the event. I will be your point of contact from your initial enquiry through to the event.
Where can the Hunts take place?
Any part of Brighton you choose, however the most interesting and picturesque part of Brighton is the oldest part of town, the Lanes. It is a maze of narrow streets, ideal for a treasure hunt exploration; you could also include the beach, seafront, Brighton Pier, the Royal Pavilion, shops, pubs, the Museum and Art Gallery, Sealife Centre, the Marina etc. It depends on the time of year, the time you have available, what you would like, and your starting point..
So what does a Treasure Hunt involve?
Teams earn points by solving clues to find places and answer questions, and by completing a variety of tasks. The clues are observational ,and educative, and some are cryptic. They are not simply a list of questions which could be answered by looking in a guidebook! Teams need to use their creativity and initiative. Specific items may need to be collected to win extra points.
The group assembles for an introduction to Brighton, and a briefing on the Treasure Hunt rules. The participants divide into teams, and are provided with files containing everything necessary in order to complete the hunt:
- Treasure Hunt in several parts
- Customised maps of the area to be covered
- City maps
- Pens, paper, folders
- Other items as required, e.g. bus passes, entrance tickets, cameras
They re-assemble after the allotted time, and hand in their files to the guide for marking, or teams can mark each others. When completed, the guide explains the answers, announces the winners and presents the prizes.
Each Treasure Hunt is compiled specifically to your requirements regarding
* whether the aim is team building, social, reward and recognition.
* level of difficulty,
* areas to be included,
* starting and finishing place
* duration. As a guide, around three hours total allows time for the hunt itself, the briefing beforehand and the meeting together at the end to announce the winners, but this is completely flexible. The minimum would be an hour and a half, maximum all day.
* I can usually theme some of the Hunt to your business activity if required..
It sounds ideal, what do I do next?
With so many variables, I need to talk to you before quoting a cost, there fore when you have a date in mind, please contact me (see foot of page) with as much information about your requirements as possible, and the number of participants.
