The Spires of Oxford

The Spires of Oxford and Morse’s Hunting Ground

This event was staged for a large telecoms company who wanted an enjoyable team-building event as part of their two-day staff conference in the historic university city of Oxford.

During the morning event, we organised a walking treasure hunt around the magnificent buildings of the Oxford Colleges. The treasure hunt was given a Morse theme whose cases were centred in this area. The teams had to use all their skill and imagination to carry out various challenges including cryptic clue solving in addition, observation, photographic and collection challenges in an atmosphere of spirited but good-humoured competition. Lunch was enjoyed at a famous old pub, again a popular haunt for Morse.

During the afternoon, a fun-packed punting stage was organised where teams could try their skills on the river. They enjoyed cool bags with splendid refreshments and all returned safe and sound to a riverside inn for drinks and the prize giving for the day’s event.

Teams returned to their hotel where softball and other events were arranged prior to a relaxing couple of hours before a great dinner and dancing at the hotel. All agreed it had been an unforgettable and hugely enjoyable day – a very satisfied group!!
