    History, mystery and fun!

    I've done other walks and treasure trails, but I still learnt some fascinating facts. I loved the clues, some of them were quite cryptic and you had to think outside the box. It's a really well put together book and treasure hunt. Great for spending time and working together.

    A perfect pastime

    This was a great way to spend a few hours. We loved the look and straightforward layout of the hunt that took us round a very attractive route. The interesting facts were a bonus adding the ideal amount of detail between clues.

In 1935, the governor of Strangeways prison threw himself a lavish party in the old canteen, to celebrate his 25 years of service, with magicians, dancers and singers entertaining a VIP crowd. One star invited to perform on the night was prison inmate and opera singer Deano Rossi, who wowed the crowd with his renditions of famous Italian classics. However, during the final encore as Deano hit his high note, the canteen was flooded by rioting inmates, and he vanished in the melee, never to be seen by the authorities again. Rumour had it that following his escape, Deano was sheltered by an accomplice in a nearby pub, to evade the police manhunt as it spread across the city. Newspapers were full of stories of the mysterious ‘disappearing Deano’, with daily articles on his life, and speculation on the whereabouts of the fugitive soprano. How did Deano escape Strangeways under the nose of its governor? Which local pub did Deano hide in? And who was the accomplice who masterminded his escape? You must search the streets of Manchester for hidden clues, unravel the story using newspaper clippings, and finally reveal the identity of Deano’s accomplice & hiding place as you solve this legendary Manchester mystery!
