Can you help Piccolo find his missing horse shoes?

Piccolo, our Pantomime Horse has lost a number of his horseshoes around the town and needs your help to find them so that he can take part in the race with all of his other horse friends.
Sign up to join the quest to help him. You'll be issued a map and the special clues help him to find the location of each horseshoe so that he can go and get them and still have time to make the last race.

£3 per entry (Parents and Grandparents go free). All you have to do is register at your preferred time of the day to take on this challenge, and each completed entry will win a prize. To collect your map and clues arrive at the Horseshoe Hunt registration desk at your allocted time to receive your information.
Please note we highly recommend that under 12's must be accompanied by a responsible person e.g. adult or older sibling. All completed entries must be received by 4pm on the day. One prize per entry.
