The Great Greenwich Treasure Hunt

Posted by Katy Ellsmore on August 13, 2012 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)

On Sunday 16th September Greenwich Oxfam Fundraising Group in conjunction with Visit Greenwich invites you to turn detective around Greenwich and join The Great Greenwich Treasure Hunt. This will be a fun day out which will promote Greenwich whilst raising money for Oxfam.

The event is being sponsored by a number of local businesses with Goddard's Pies as the main sponsor. This will be a big event with 150 participants and we hope to raise £1300 for Oxfam through the event.

The treasure hunt will consist of a number of questions which teams must answer in the required time by visiting sites and businesses around Greenwich town centre. There will be some great prizes which have been donated by local businesses. These include a two course lunch with drinks for six at Goddard's restaurant and six tickets for any show at Greenwich Theatre. The recommended team size is four to six people and the event is suitable for all ages.

Teams will also be encouraged to take photos on the hunt to capture the sights they see around Greenwich. The most interesting photos will be put on display in an exhibition called "Hidden Greenwich" at Greenwich Tourist Information Centre and the best photo will also win a prize.

Everyone who completes the treasure hunt will get a free goody bag with money off vouchers for local businesses.

Tickets are on sale now at and also in person from both the Greenwich Tourist Information Centre on the Old Royal Naval College site and the Greenwich Oxfam bookshop. They are priced at £8, £6 for students and £5 for under 16's. There are also family tickets available for £20 for up two adults and two under 16's. We recommend you get your tickets in advance as the event is likely to sell out.

On the day all participants will need to come to the Greenwich T.I.C. between 12pm and 12.30pm to register their teams and collect instructions. You will have until 3.30pm to answer all questions and return to a designated meeting place where the answers will be marked and prizes awarded.
