We have had a few treasure hunts at Chailey Heritage Foundation, so this time, we needed to do something a bit different.
It started with a different way to find the clues and this time we had music! There were six different locations that had to be found by listening to different music and the music was played as we went to the locations. Some of the music was hard to find, we needed music that had the words 'car park' in it and there it was...'Britain is a Car Park' by Eliza Carthy. Of course, we had an easy one to find the clues on the farm, 'Old McDonald Had a Farm'. My favourite musical clue was 'Suddenly Seymour' from The Little Shop of Horrors to find the clue at a location in the school, Seymour Hall.
The bungalows had allocated times to keep within their 'bubbles' to ensure Covid safety and each set of clues were specific for each bungalow.
They collected five sets of images (25 images in total), all numbered on the back. The images made up a mosaic of a young person in the bungalow when attached to a wall. The main image contained hundreds of pictures of all of the young people in that bungalow. At the bottom of the finished image was a word clue to give the location of the prize for the treasure hunt.
This was really great fun and the picture twist at the end was brilliant.
