On Saturday 21 October Bristol Shopping Quarter played host to Casefile Bristol: The Mystery of the Star-Eaters, a live mystery game. Players, who initially registered online, acted as consultant detectives, visiting 12 venues within Broadmead and The Galleries as they attempted to piece together the trail; they had to question real live witnesses and solve ingenious puzzles. They paid £10 per person or £40 for a team of up to six with under 12s going free. A trail sheet was provided for 4-8 year-olds that they could play alongside the main game. The game was promoted by the organisers, Casefile Events, and through the Broadmead BID’s website and social media channels.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
