In a city of treasures, a treasure hunt (and for the winners, dinner for two in a Bath restaurant of your choice)
Do you remember Kit Williams’s book Masquerade? Its cryptic paintings and verse hid clues to the whereabouts of a bejeweled hare. The book sold like hot cakes around the world, but the enterprise ended in skullduggery when (stay awake in the back!) the man who discovered the prize, “Ken Thomas", was revealed to be a pseudonym of Dugald Thompson, whose business partner, John Guard, was the boyfriend of Veronica Robertson, a former live-in girlfriend of Kit Williams.
Our treasure hunt is relatively simple. Find and photograph the three things our notes allude to, bring your phone and show us. The first five people to do so get dinner for two on us, and a bottle of house wine in any Bath restaurant (except The Priory of course). Smaller liquid prizes for the next dozen.

- Once, anyone with the price of admission was welcome in this building, now the requirements are far more esoteric.
