Cambridge Treasure Hunt #4 – Sunday, 19 September, 16:00-19:00 (BST) – TBC

Sunday 19 September, 16:00 - 19:00

A team-based walking adventure exploring the city (a repeat of the 2017 treasure hunt created by Tanya Yurasova* and Sayara Thompson).

How well do you know Cambridge? How observant are you? To find out, please join us on our fun “treasure hunt”! The “treasures” are not real, of course, – they are merely buildings and lanes of Cambridge that you would need to identify from photographs and find in the city centre in order to answer a number of questions. After a brisk stroll round the city, we’ll meet to name the winners and celebrate.

WHEN: Sunday, 19 September, 16:00-19:00 (BST) – TBC
100% Outdoor (please dress accordingly)
MEETING POINT (the start and the finish):
 the north-western corner on Jesus Green next to The Mimosa restaurant
LANGUAGE: Russian/English. You only need to be able to speak one of the two languages in order to take part, all questions will be in Russian and English. Bring along your Russian- or English-speaking friends, colleagues and family members!
Teams of 4 people. You may form and book your own team or, if you are new and don’t know many people, we can help you to form a team; great way to make new friends)
FEE per person: 
Adults – £4; Children aged 7-15 – £2; Children under 7 – Free; CamRuSS members – £2. Please pay with cash at the event.

REGISTRATION: Please REGISTER by filling in this form before Saturday, 18 September.

What is it? The “treasures” are visual – they are sights in central Cambridge; you will need to spot them from photos, find them, and answer some short questions. The idea is NOT to check your knowledge of Cambridge but to have fun in pleasant company, enjoy the scenery, and possibly learn a few interesting facts. Hence, please bring along your smartphones – you will be allowed to use Google!

By the way, please don’t be misled by the picture – it is only an illustration. We are not revealing the real questions to you!
