The Lord Protector’s League, last heard from in the reign of “The Old Empress” Queen Victoria, have crawled out from underneath the moss-covered rock that they’ve been mouldering under for more than a century. However, this time they’ve also dragged their scheming in to the 21st Century and are using all the technology they can get their grubby hands on….
What do these nefarious malcontents want? What could make these repugnant individuals remotely happy? Spoiling other people’s fun, that’s what!
The recipe for the prized "Joyous Jubilee Platinum Pudding" is under threat having been prepared by Chef to the Stars, Hugh E Gooh.
With the Assistance of the National Office of Bakeries, Artisans, Kennels and Eateries (NO-BAKE) you are charged with recovering the recipe, restoring it to its rightful owner and saving our bacon (Well our cake, but you get what we mean right?)
This escape room will last 45 minutes and is priced at £70 to honour the 70 Years of Service from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – It will run over the four day Jubilee Weekend and WILL NEVER EVER BE REPEATED!
