Treasure hunters can find clues in West End shops leading them to an ‘iron key’ to a locked box and a possible £250 prize.

The hunt is organised by the West End Million partnership.

The prize last year was claimed by the Ross family from the West End who managed to complete the treasure hunt in around eight hours. This year there are runner-up prizes too.

“The treasure hunt is designed to bring people together and get out and about in the wonderful West End,” said Simon Das from the West End Million Partnership.

The hunt begins at 9am this Saturday (April 16). The first clue will be available from independent shops and businesses within the West End. The first half of the clue reads as follows...

“With ancient words the secret wrought,

The sisters each in chains are sought.

The locks are five the key is one,

Whose copper shroud would be undone.

We wield a bow......”
