Events

Date: 20/02/2017 - 26/02/2017 - 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
Tamworth Castle Castle Quest - Tamworth Castle, Tamworth Staffordshire

This event is aimed toward a teenage market but would appeal to other age ranges depending on their interests. The event idea is derived from the concepts incorporated in many computer games such as search and collect games where participants collect items in order to reach an ultimate goal and have to overcome obstacles and challenges to do so.

Questers will encounter a series of characters or clues, each will have a unique word to share, but they will only share it if a task is completed or the answer to a riddle/clue is successful. Questers will have to collect the unique words and record them on their card.

On the conclusion of the Quest, participants will have to take the ultimate challenge to walk the Quest grid blindfolded, testing the success of their problem solving skills. Upon completion a reward is given to all questers. 

Admission: Adult £7.50, OAP £6.50, Child 5+ £5.00, Child 2-4 years £3.00, Child under 2 years free. Family ticket £23.00 (2 adults & 2 children)
