Find Your London Treasure Hunt + Party
Search Party is the flagship event of the Mayor of London’s brand new Find your London Festival.
Search Party is a treasure hunt in search of… a secret party! 4 routes, 4,000 free tickets and 1 secret party – if you can find it!
Hidden deep in London’s parkscape, a secret party awaits you. There will be afternoon tea, swing dancing, music and an array of surprises. There’s no cost but there’s a catch: the party location is undisclosed. Londoners have just four hours to try to find their way there.
On Sunday March 20 2016, for one day only, London’s pocket parks, squares and piazzas will be transformed into an immersive green playground. Four trails of clues and capers will lead and mislead participants through hidden gardens, secret squares and side streets. Participants will need to collaborate, take risks and interact with strangers as they make their way through 2 miles of London’s open spaces.
En route, they’ll find themselves solving riddles, taking taste tests and even herding sheep. Each solved clue yields part of the party address. Clues will reveal themselves in surprising ways: a message in a bottle, an actor disguised as a gardener, an unmarked taxi parked nearby… Tricky? Maybe: but a good party is worth searching for.
Clues have been commissioned by artists, actors, gardeners, bakers and magicians. 50 volunteers will line the route, helping perplexed searchers get back on track – or to trick them off course… Search Party is a free event but places are strictly limited. Pre-register online here.
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP, said: “My new festival celebrates our city’s great outdoor space from our much loved woods and parks, to our bustling high streets and town centres. There is a smorgasbord of festival events from searching for clues to locate the secret party, to launches of new markets to historical tours of our river sides.”
Find Your London, is the Mayor of London’s final jamboree. It runs from 18-28 March 2016 with everything from beekeeping to photography to an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. The festival aims to get Londoners out and about exploring more of their city. Check the website for full listings: www.london.gov.uk/findyourlondon.
