Discover Colchester. Have fun. Win money.

Get the book, check the clues and start hunting!
Win up to £10,000!

Street Hunt is a kind of visual crossword puzzle, a treasure hunt where the riches are road names, a story emerging from the page: and your chance to win up to £10,000!

A poem has been written with words from Colchester road names. A book of photographs shows the street signs and their surroundings but with the names removed. You have to work out what the streets are, using the emerging story of the poem to help you.

The first person to submit a correctly completed book with all the right answers wins. The prize is the total cash fund of the amalgamated book sales with a guaranteed minimum of £1,000 and a maximum of £10,000 if all the books printed are sold. We are asking for £10 for each book, but pay what you can afford. The more money we receive the bigger the prize pot gets.

Books are available from Red Lion Books, 125 High Street, Colchester, Essex, CO1 1SZ. You can order your copy by buying a ticket below, this will act as reservation for a book, and you can take this ticket in to Red Lion Books, where they'll exchange it for your book, or you can just go there, no need to buy in advance.

Books cost £10.00. But if you can’t afford £10 we are inviting to you just Pay What You Can Afford.
