Discover Clarendon Park with the ArtBeat Treasure Hunt.
Suitable for all ages just follow the trail, answer the questions and whoever gets the most right answers wins the prize.
Pick up the questions at Knighton Library or download here.
Start and finish outside Knighton Library on Clarendon Park Road.
All clues are visible without intruding on private areas such as gardens etc. and you do not need to cross London, Welford or Victoria Park Road. Be very careful crossing roads.
There is no hidden treasure (that we know of), simply answer the questions to get points and the team with the most points wins. One point per answer.
Winners will be informed and listed on www.clarendonpark.net by Wed 28th June.
ArtBeat is rapidly approaching, it runs from Friday 16th June to Sunday 25th June, and we’re looking for volunteers to help at events.
You can volunteer for one event, one day, one weekend or even the whole festival – whatever fits into your life. Most events are at weekends and it should be a lot of fun.
We hold events in a variety of venues, such as pubs, restaurants, church halls, outdoors, and private houses. We have music (of all types), dance, film, literary and comedy events, as well as architecture, history, and other cultural subjects. We expect to hold about 40 events.
Your duties would be:
to provide information including directions, facilities, and performances and to help festival goers, eg assisting disabled people.
to help team members to set up the venue
to greet the audience on arrival, to check tickets of those arriving (for ticketed events)
to engage with the public to complete questionnaires
to help to clear the venue at the end of the performance
to assist in arts and crafts activities
to work with the event manager to ensure emergencies, medical, fire and security issues are dealt with promptly and safely
to be proactive and alert to any potential problems eg a build-up of litter or faulty facilities, to help to prevent overcrowding and be on hand to monitor crowd safety
