Cheltenham Treasure Hunt on 11th June 2022

May 14, 2022 | All, Events

We are excited to announce that our first ever Treasure Hunt is going to be launched in Cheltenham on 11th June 2022 at 2.00pm, starting at Montpellier Gardens.

What is a Treasure Hunt?

Treasure Hunt is an exciting feature that we at Venubox came up with when designing our mobile app.  It offers Venubox App users an opportunity to take part in a treasure hunt to win cash prizes!  Each Treasure Hunt we create will be available to join via the Venubox Mobile app, whereby users will be able to join the hunt, find the starting point via our News & Media Events page, or by following us on social media.  When the Treasure Hunt begins, we will start sending clues to your device to find a local venue, albeit a hospitality venue, or a place of local interest. The Venubox mobile app will track your location, and as you find the venue that the clue lead you to, the next clue will arrive.  The person who arrives at the venue first wins the main cash prize, and there will be runners up prizes.  It is that simple!

What could I win?

For our Cheltenham Treasure Hunt our prizes will be as follows:

1st Prize is £250
2nd Prize is £100
3rd Prize is £50

How do I participate?

Firstly, you will need to install the Venubox mobile app.  It is available for both Android and Apple iOS devices and can be found by either searching for “Venubox” in either the Google Play Store, or the AppStore, respectively, or by clicking the links shown here or at the bottom of this web page.

Secondly, you will need to sign-in to the Venubox mobile app.  We made this frictionless for you by offering you the chance to sign-in via your Google account, or via Facebook or Twitter authentication.  These methods also start the creation of your profile, but manual registration with an email address and password is also supported.  To complete your registration, you will be automatically directed to your profile where you can add your mobile phone number.  Once entered, you will be sent a text message (SMS) with a code to enter to verify your identity.  Then your profile is complete!

Thirdly, you can now click the diamond in the middle of the Venubox menu at the bottom, and browse to find a local Treasure Hunt, in this case, navigating to Cheltenham Treasure Hunt as per the sequence below from left to right.  The count down timer will run until the Treasure Hunt starts at 2.00pm on 11th June 2022, and then will be replaced with a button enabling you to enrol.

Lastly, be at Montpellier Gardens which can be located at 24 Montpellier Spa Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50 1UL.  Head to the centre of the park close to the Montpellier Garden Cafe, In The Park and The Band Stand and when the countdown timer for the Treasure Hunt completes, you can click to join and your first clue will be delivered, and your registration to participate recorded.

Follow the subsequent 8 clues which will provide hints at another destination for you to find in the local vicinity on foot.  This is important, as anyone that is travelling by vehicle will be voided from the cash prizes.  Remember, we know where the locations are, and how much time it takes to travel between them on foot! 

Handy Tip: Use the Venubox Map to help guide you to find venues that the clues are guiding to, especially if you are less familiar with the area. The map can be located by clicking the home page icon in the bottom menu in the Venubox app, and then clicking map, as per the screenshot below.

When you arrive at the final destination, you will get a message to say you have found the final destination, and will find a Venubox Team Member there to greet you, and arrange for payment of your prize!  They will be wearing Vebubox branded t-shirts, so you will not miss them!

Verification will be required that your mobile device upon which you entered was in fact the first device to arrive at the venue.  This is tracked automatically, and will only take a few minutes to complete.  We will also verify the time taken between venues to ensure that as per our Terms & Conditions (presented at the bottom of this page), participation in the Treasure Hunt was undertaken on foot.  Payments of the prize money will be completed using BACS payment transfer.  No Venubox Team members will be carrying cash or valuables for personal safety reasons.

Good luck, and we look forward to seeing you on the day!
