Cancelled: Treasure Hunt 2020

28/12/2020 @ 12:00 - 15:00


Unfortunately it was announced today that our corner of Essex will also now be going into Tier 4 on Boxing Day. Regrettably this means we have no alternative than to cancel the treasure hunt. 

Note: If it is possible to run the Treasure Hunt in early spring then we will make an announcement on our social media channels


Firstly (and most importantly) the Treasure Hunt is wholly dependant on the Coronavirus Rules that pertain on 28th December. Please remember that masks are still currently required whilst you are moving around in the pub. Also, please keep an eye on this page and our social media accounts for the latest news and any updates.

The short info:

  • Meet at the Alma Public House’s new garden between midday and one o’clock on Bank Holiday Monday to collect your clues 
  • Don’t forget a pencil or a pen, please!
  • £5 per individual or £10 per family
  • Answer sheets should be back by 3pm for marking, results by 3.30pm.

The long version:

To collect clues please enter the Alma through the gate at 26, Kings Head Street (to the right of the Alma front doors). Please do not use the Eastgate St entrance.

The gate leads into the new Alma garden. For information, this is soon to be a new seafood restaurant, Lambard’s Salt House. Watch out for a poster on the gate. Here you will find a large heated marquee where you can collect clue sheets between 1200 -1300.

Under current Tier Two rules, you can buy soft drinks, tea, coffee etc. Note, If you want to buy alcohol, you will have to order food from the menu, but you can reserve it for consumption upon your return. There is table service here and a one way system takes Treasure Hunters out through the door of No. 26, back into Kings Head Street. There are toilet facilities too, so no need to enter the Alma Inn at all.

Completed sheets are due back at the Alma between 1430 and 1500 and competitors should bring their sheets back to the Alma. Please enter the pub through the front door and walk through to the back garden of the Alma (which is also heated). We hope to have all sheets marked and the results ready by 1530. Whilst waiting for results people can either take a seat in one of the outdoor areas or sit inside if consuming a meal. Again, apologies but soft drinks only for those not eating.
