Murder Mystery Hunt


Murder Mystery Hunt

Last Entry: 30th April 2021 (NOW CLOSED)


There’s been a murder and BB groups are needed to help search across the UK for hidden clues. How quickly can your group eliminate the suspects and find the guilty person? Will you be the quickest detective team in the UK & RoI and be crowned BB champions?

This interactive activity requires young people to use Google Maps and street view to hunt for hidden clues. Use those clues and your detective skills to eliminate suspects and find the murderer. However with groups up and down the country on the same hunt for clues, only the quickest detective team will get the credit they deserve for cracking the case. Don’t hang around, there’s no time to waste!

For full information on how to complete the challenge and the activity sheet with all the clues on, check out our Get Adventurous: Murder Mystery Hunt activity card.

We’ll regularly update the results table throughout March & April, allowing you to see how your time fared with other BB groups across the country.
