Frolicked’s The Hunt was a live treasure hunt event that took place across five venues on five dates in the run up to the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in Yorkshire in summer 2014. Participants of the hunt had the opportunity to win a special, valuable and completely unique, Tour de France-inspired prize, made by Emma White at Pink Butterfly Jewellery.

The prize!

The hunt took the form of five mini treasure hunts on five different days, each attached to a specific location of historical interest:

Worsbrough MillMonday 26th May11am - 1pm and
2pm - 4pm
Knaresborough CastleFriday 30th May11am - 1pm and
2pm - 4pm
Dean Clough MillsSaturday 7th June11.30am - 1.30pm and
2.30pm - 4.30pm
Rotherham LibrarySaturday 14th June10am - 12pm and
1pm - 3pm
All 4 clues give you the spot!Clue 3 tells you when!Check out Clue 2

The prize at each of the first four locations included one quarter of a final clue that revealed a final (secret!) location. Players combined all four ‘cluelets’ to find the last location. If they cracked the clue, they’d know where to go and when in order to have the chance at winning the final prize.

Each mini hunt involved interaction with one of Frolicked’s colourful puppet characters. Players were asked to look out for them – they were the key to success in solving each mini hunt. Participants could be lucky enough to encounter a lively set of rare birds, a gorgeous ghost and a down-to-earth Yorkshire couple with more than a few stories to tell…

Cluelets were available online very shortly after each live mini hunt (via the Yorkshire Festival 2014 website), so that anyone who joined the treasure hunt at any point could still join the final hunt for the big prize.
