Christmas-Themed Town Centre Puzzle Trail

Client: Reading Business Improvement District

Type of product: Puzzle trail

Type of organisation product created for: Business Improvement District

Purpose: Recreation & entertainment, attracting people into Reading town centre and increasing footfall for local businesses

In Autumn 2019, we were commissioned by the Reading Business Improvement District to create ‘The 12 Pubs of Christmas’, a Christmas event that was free to attend for the community. It required a table-top, escape room-style puzzle in 12 different venues around the town. We pitched a design featuring puzzles inspired by the location of each puzzle, crossed with a Christmassy feel.

Shortly after this first event, we were commissioned to produce a second set of unique puzzles, this time based around the history of Reading. This event ran in October 2022, once again to great customer reviews.
