The next NICOSIA STREET QUEST will be held on

 Tuesday 28th November 2017


WHERE: Registration, start and finish at Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR), Ermou Street, Old Nicosia.

WHEN: Tuesday, 28th November 2017 between 1900 hrs and 2000 hrs.

WHAT TO BRING: A pen to write down your answers and €2 entry fee.

Event 8 in the 2017 NICOSIA STREET QUEST series will be held, on Tuesday 28th November 2017, from CVAR. Registration opens at 1845 hrs and closes at 1945 hrs. Start times will be available any time between 1900 hrs and 2000 hrs. The course closes at 2115 hrs. Entry fees are €2 per person. Maps and question sheets will be provided at the start.

Your “Quest” is to navigate to up to 21 location points on the map of Nicosia (within the city walls) and answer a simple, non-cryptic question at each location (eg – what is the colour of the door at number 18? How many mannequins in the shop window?). Each question is worth either 10, 20 or 30 points. There will be a BONUS Question at each event. The time allowed is 60 minutes. There will be 5 penalty points for every minute late back. So make sure you are back within an hour from your start time. 

You will need a pen to mark your answers on the question sheet. You are advised to wear comfortable walking/running shoes and light coloured clothing (ideally reflective) for extra visibility. A small torch may be useful to assist your eyesight when reading the map. Electronic timing will be used. Individuals and teams of up to four people will be permitted. Points will be shared equally among team members. Children under twelve must be accompanied by an adult. All participants take part at their own risk. The organsier’s decisions are final. For more information please check out our Facebook page or call 99413479. 

We are very grateful to CVAR for permission to use their premises and hope everyone will stay behind afterwards for a social chat and try out the refreshments at Balthazar CafĂ©.
