A treasure hunt, wine and chocolate event
The V&A Museum is named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and was founded in 1852 . It is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects.
This Easter adventure,organised by Treasure hunts in London, had the theme Easter Eggs and Scotch eggs. Teams set off to explore the museum and find art with a Scottish connection or an Egg connection.
After the hunt everyone met for some well earned glasses of wine and chocolate. The winning team received Easter eggs and all participants received cream eggs.

A special treasure hunt around London was hosted by Boris Johnson in one of his last acts as London Mayor. There were four hidden trails around London’s streets and parks that led to a secret party location. Searchers had four hours to try to find their way there.
The trail of clues led to a series of tasks that had to be completed. Each clue solved yielded another clue towards the party address.
Treasure hunters were advised to dress for warmth; wear comfy shoes; and wear a splash of red!The secret party was organised for 4,000 people as part of the Find Your London festival – a project aimed at encouraging more Londoners to explore their city.
Mr Johnson told the Evening Standard : “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.”
The end party had afternoon tea and entertainment.
