Families are being invited to go on a ‘Royal Treasure Quest’ in King’s Lynn on Bank Holiday Tuesday 5 June, to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee and this area’s special connections with the Royal Family.
The Quest is promised to be ‘a voyage of discovery bound only by the imagination.’ Along the way families will be transported to far away lands of royal myths and legends, stories of riches, jewels, treasures, kings and queens, magic and mishap, sieges and sages.
The Quest is being organised by The Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, working in partnership with the King’s Lynn Arts Centre Trust and the Vancouver Quarter.
Each Quest will take approximately 2 hours and starts from the King’s Lynn Arts Centre where participants will be given their own Quest Map. The first Quest starts at 10am and further starting times at 20 minute intervals until 1.20pm
Along the way participants can search for clues to crack the code and complete the quest. The clues will be woven into stories and found on buildings and landmarks.
Well-known weavers of words Paul Jackson, Liam Carrol and Laurie Steel and puppeteer, Josh Neal, will spin tales to captivate and enchant while casting a verbal spell on this bewitching journey, but families will need to listen carefully for the clues lying within the fables.
As families complete their quest, they will be invited to join some characterful monarchists at a Right Royal Tea Party to celebrate the Queen’s coronation in 1953 with cockney rhyming slang and festive fun and song.
Finished quest sheets can be placed into the Queen’s Treasure Chest at the party to enter the draw for a chance of winning a specially commissioned prize.
