God Bless America! And Espionage..

I’ve been organising a ‘James Bond’ Adventure Event around Mayfair for an upmarket American Tour Company called Tauck. Everyone seems to have a really good time but I’m amazed that most people know so little about our fictional (or as Sean would say fic-shonal) hero. As they spot photo clues, they also meet two ‘Secret Agents’ along the way.. one of them is me (trying to look mysterious..!?) and the other is the glamorous ‘Agent 999′- a deadly Russian beauty all the way from Crouch End..
I get them to sing three Bond Themes – you’d think it would be easy 20 odd movies later – but the most popular ones are still ‘Goldfinger’ ‘Live & Let Die’ and ‘Nobody Does it Better’ – you know the one from…?
Little do one of the teams know, but their group goes through a small park (Mount Gardens) by Guy Ritchies pub, where Russian spies did ‘drop’ secret information..
Let me know if you also want to join the world of espionage..go on, live and let live!

It’s All Gone Swimmingly!

Where has the Spring all gone?! The Spring hasn’t sprung – it’s curled back under it’s big duvet and a put a ‘Leave me Alone!’ sign on the door! This has not helped treasure seekers who don’t like cold, rain, and more of the same..however, I have high hopes. When the summer does arrive (look out for the bright orb in the sky) I have a fabulous Hunt around and about the Thames which includes the Globe, the Anchor Pub, Borough Market and the only coaching inn left in London, the George in Borough High Street..

I would also like to try out The Tardis Trail – a Dr Who spectacular around the futuristic landscape of the Barbican – so, first come, first serve.. if you want to take up the offer – whether Whoies or sci-fi enthusiasts or families who want an excuse to have a thrilling & suspenceful chase in an effort to save the world – now’s your chance!

New Hunt: The Tardis Trail

Aliens have arrived on Earth. They have planted a bomb which, if detonated, would blanket the Earth with Alien Spores. The Doctor cannot be reached but he knows where the detonator is. Who will reach it in time? Problem: The Aliens have taken human form and are already among us. The Doctor’s Companions must dismantle the detonator before the Aliens. Who will get there first? Join the race to save the Earth – if you dare!

Londoncentric? Who? Moi?!

All of Bigfoot’s Hunts are London-centric simply because I love London! Especially the quirky and trivial side of the Capital. It has also became a dimension I like to add to the Hunts – a bit of useless information always appeals, especially when it’s connected to an area a group thinks it knows well. For instance, when we start at the Monument, did you know that the columns height is an odd 202ft because that is the exact distance from where the Great Fire started..? Or that in Mayfair, one of the hunts goes past the house where, the Dandy, Beau Brummel, used to polish his boots with champagne! In Covent Garden, the Bow Street Police Station had to change its traditional blue lights to white ones by order of Queen Vic’s herself!… By the Savoy, cars are permitted to drive on the wrong side of the road…

I’ll add further titbits for trivia sensation seekers in future blogs..

Happy hunting

By Public Demand – Murders Every Fortnight!

Coming soon..

I’m really looking forward to organising regular ‘Murder On The Move’ events which will be on a first come first serve basis.

I will be dressed up as the intrepid Inspector Quirk who will greet the group at the designated Tube Station. The Inspector will hand out ‘character cards’ to each of the group. Then the fun begins..the group have now become suspects in a hideous Murder Mystery! One of the group is the killer and can strike again! The Inspector leads the group to locations the suspects may recognise, and pub to pub so the characters have the chance to get to know one another and deduce who the killer might be.. all will be revealed, but it may be too late for some..!
