News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

This summer, Julian House is challenging families, friends and colleagues to get their spy hats on for its brand-new event, the Big Summer Scavenger Hunt. On any day between Saturday 24 July to Saturday 7 August, challengers will be roaming across Bath and the surrounding countryside and hunting down the secret riddles. Once solved, these unlock the epic treasure – where participants may just win a prize!

The new event has two trails to choose from. ‘Super Spies’ is a real-life family adventure, a two-mile route perfect for children of all ages, pushchairs and wheelchair users. Whereas the special ‘Code Breaker’ Trail is a six-mile GPS Hunt perfect for adults and older teenagers. Challengers will be off exploring stunning local countryside around Bath hunting down the riddles to crack the code. 

Event Organizer, Jessica Gay of Julian House, said, “It’s been an incredibly tough year for everyone, so our new event doesn’t charge a ticket fee. Instead, it is a fantastic chance to have fun and at the same time donate what you can to raise much needed funds to help support vulnerable men, women and children experiencing homelessness and escaping domestic. By enjoying a fun-filled day out, you can also help change lives. A perfect combination!” 

Perfect for a family summer holiday day out

The new event has been organised alongside Bathscape. Lucy Bartlett, Bathscape’s Community Projects Officer, said, “We’re really pleased to partner with Julian House again. This event will raise funds for their crucial work, whilst encouraging people to actively enjoy the landscape, which is key to our work. Super Spies will see some heritage hotspots and parks, and the intrepid code breakers will explore the beautiful countryside within easy reach of the city centre.”

Everyone who cracks the code will be entered into a prize draw to win some amazing prizes, including an afternoon tea for four at Royal Crescent Hotel and admission into Bath’s new spooktacular House of Frankenstein Museum.
