A national gem in the north of London, and the second of our 'eligible for league' hunts, in the Royal Air Force Museum in Colindale. Housing over 100 aircraft from the beginnings of the technology through World War One, the Battle of Britain, The Cold War and modern times, it's one of the most impressive Aeronautical museums in the world. So...
Meeting around 2pm near the museum (outside the 'Wings' Restaurant near the entrance to the museum, inside its grounds), everyone will be allocated to groups of up to 5 people (or you can make your own groups). You will be given a challenging and rewarding list of clues, riddles and prompts to work out and follow that will help you get the best out of this classic museum. There will be no 'race', so you can take your time to explore the museum.
There will be a charge of £5 per person for this meetup which you can pay when you arrive. This will be the second of five 'league' hunts, meaning you can register your result in the Cultural Treasure Hunt League if you wish.
League hunts (see league so far below) are like all our hunts, but with a twist. If you like, you can form a group that stays together for at least three out of the five league hunts that we have. Your best three scores out of the five league hunts will determine who wins the league. League hunts will alternate with normal hunts (which have the cash prize), and give us an opportunity to explore slightly lesser-known but beautiful museums and galleries. They'll occur about once a month until December as a result.
You can also enter the league as an individual. The same rules apply - you need to attend at least three out of the five league meetups, and your score will be the average of your best three.
You can register (either as a group or an individual) for the league when you arrive at the meetup.
There will be a league winner for both categories (Group and Individual) announced after the fifth league hunt in December. The winners will be put on our Hall of Fame on Meetup and on our website: http://www.culturaltreasurehunt.co.uk/league.
League meetups are similar to any other of our treasure hunts - you do not have to register for the league to attend. It's entirely optional.
We will rendezvous at a nearby pub after the hunt for a drink and a natter, and to announce the results.
