Bah humbug! That pesky festive market returns to the city, and once again it’s trying to scupper our adventurous treasure hunters!

From Friday 17 November to Thursday 21 December 23 the front of the Town Hall will be overflowing with mulled wine, sizzling with “German” sausages and twinkling with tinsel.

Since the game starts and ends right where the market is running, you’d be forgiven for having a little trouble finding those clues!

Fear not, the rest of the game is working and just as fun as ever. If a little chilly.

“We loved puzzling out the clues and each one of us was able to contribute something to solve the puzzles. This activity was a great way to explore the city and we spent four hours on the treasure hunt, with leisurely stops for lunch, coffee and ice cream.”
