Become a detective

Sat, 16th September – Manhunt Nottingham

Take part in this murder mystery game and compete against other teams in Nottingham. Teams of 2-6 use a special app to track down the 18 virtual-witnesses placed all over town (think Pokemon-Go style!)​, eliminate suspects and rule-out murder weapons.

It’s just like real-life Cluedo! Don’t expect anything as challenging as an escape room but we had fun running around the city centre when we took part in the last manhunt event. Our top tip – watch out for red herrings!

We’ve been told that children and dogs are welcome too!
