Spring had sprung as teams of treasure hunters took to the streets

Starting at the National Gallery to the north of Trafalgar Square, they were greeted by Bo Peep and given instructions, before setting off to hunt for heritage……and sheep.

The “Art and Artisans” treasure hunt helps treasure hunters discover some of the famous people that have lived and worked around Trafalgar Square. As well as looking for statues and plaques, this special Easter Treasure Hunt required teams to complete special springtime challenges and find “sheep” dotted around the area.

During the hunt teams were given the chance to win additional prizes by completing a bonus assignment at the National Portrait Gallery.   

The hunt ended at a nearby pub with drinks and Easter eggs for all the participants and prizes for the winning team.
