Troops to Hoops – Town Centre Engagement Event

Client: Reading Business Improvement District / Reading Fringe Festival

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

Following the success of a previously run puzzle trail event, we were asked to create another puzzle trail, this time based around the history of Reading.

Each puzzle we created took players back to a different important period in Reading’s history; from the opening of Reading Abbey, to the Reading Rock Festival of 1978. Every challenge was beautifully illustrated by a local artist, and meant that there was a cohesion between the whole set of puzzles.
