Win a £50 Bar Tab!

Okay, you made it through your degree, but have you got what it takes to become a PIRATE???

Throughout July, Treasure Hunt Manchester is running a competition for graduating students at the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Bolton and University of Salford..

See how well you know the city that’s been your home for the past few years and stand the chance to win a £50 bar tab – now that’s the kind of loot we’re talking about!

Just play Treasure Hunt Manchester between 1st and 31st July, booking with your university email and we’ll add your team to the leaderboard.

The winners – who complete the most correct answers in the shortest time – will win a £50 bar tab to spend at our favourite tavern, The Wharf. If you’ve spent more time with your head in the books at the library – or with your head in your hands the morning after the night before – than getting out to St Peter's Square or John Rylands Library , it’s not too late. Explore Manchester and banter with Captain Bess as she guides you around the city’s best loved gems and most overlooked secrets.

With plenty of places to stop for a swift pint of grog on the route it’s a chance to showcase your lateral thinking skills and those other valuable skills you picked up in the student union bar … Did someone say strawpedo?

At around 2.5 hours, it’s the perfect activity to keep your parents occupied while they’re in town for graduation. If you’re not worried about winning you can take as long as you like!

Treasure Hunt Manchester is a self-guided treasure hunt around the city with maps and cryptic questions sent straight to your phone. Start and finish when you like, reschedule if the weather’s bad and if you don’t like it, we’ll give you your money back!

“Had an absolute blast, only with they did other quests around Manchester as would definitely do more of these. Unlike other of these app based hunts, this was very specific to the city and had great history lessons included”
