An Avengers Treasure Hunt – 2nd to 4th July 2010


I don’t run it, but in case you’re interested:

Are you a fan of The Avengers and other cult TV series of the 1960s and 70s? Then why not join us for a weekend of fun and games around those fantastic series?

Taking place in deepest Avengerland (Borehamwood and Elstree) over the weekend of Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th of July 2010, the event includes a tour of locations used in The Avengers and similar shows of the time…, and an evening of games and quizzes with the emphasis very much on fun, so no worries if your knowledge of the series is a bit rusty. Sunday morning is devoted to the Treasure Hunt itself and followed by a well-earned lunch, before the weekend concludes around 4pm.

If you’re interested and want to know a little more, please e-mail us at [email protected]

Please note that this is a small-scale not-for-profit event, organised by fans for other afficionados, which has been running for 24 years now. Oh, and in case you’re wondering: You’re NOT expected to turn up in fancy dress!
