Event details

A good story makes you feel like you're in the world of its characters. But it’s not very often you get the chance to literally walk the streets of a story's setting while you're turning the pages.  Join us for a chance to do just that with this literary treasure hunt. 

A cross between geo-caching and Pokémon GO, the #foundfiction story hunt invites you to  search for extracts from a prize-winning short story based on the Festival’s theme, A World of Wonder. Tucked away in hidden locations across York city centre, the first extract will contain a clue to the whereabouts of the second, and so on, until all five extracts are found.

Piece the story together and share your experiences to social media using #foundfiction. Will you be the first person to complete the hunt?

Hunt starts at York Explore Library, Library Square.
