Looking for free, festive, family fun this winter? Try our adventure trail. There’s a tricky mystery to be solved AND there’s goodies to be won.

The trail is called The Finding of Arrietty Clock and was inspired by our Christmas production of The Borrowers. In the trail, tiny borrower Arrietty has been squashed under a book. By tracking down clues hidden around the town centre, you need to work out which book she’s under, thereby saving Arrietty and allowing the Christmas production to go ahead.

The last trail we launched – The Strange Case of Harry Holywell – took the town by storm. We reckon that over 3000 people took up the challenge to solve the mysterious murder of theatre director Mr Holywell. (If you missed it, you can check it out here.)

This trail starts and ends at Books on the Hill on Holywell Hill. It takes about 90 minutes to complete.

You can download it as a single-sided or a double-sided document.

People who completed our last trail said kind things about it:

We did it today too, was so much fun! And we’re all exhausted with achey legs! Got my boys out for the whole morning, great stuff. Whoever thought of it all did an amazing job.

We’ve also done this, it’s brilliant. My 8 year old and 11 year old really enjoyed it.

We totally loved it, couldn’t recommend more!!!

We did this today and thought it was great! Well done and thanks so much for putting it together and sharing.

We did this yesterday, can highly recommend!

It’s suitable for everyone from 5 to 100. Wrap up warm. If you enjoy it, please tell your friends.
