    LIFT in association with Bernie Grant Arts Centre presents

    Welcome to Balthazar’s Treasure: The Cacao Quest!

    Solve the mystery and uncover the missing pages of Balthazar Sanchez’s recipe book to reveal the ultimate calorie-free chocolate recipe in this Tottenham-based treasure hunt.

    Come play – this game will combine live, interactive and digital elements. You’ll get to try out some great technology and learn about the history of Tottenham. You’ll tackle challenges, solve puzzles, untangle facts and discover some of Tottenham’s hidden history in an attempt to find the key to the ultimate chocolate experience.

    You may not know this but our hero, Balthazar Sanchez, was a real person! He was a Spanish Moor and was the confectioner to Philip II of Spain – when he first brought chocolate to the UK in the 1600s he settled in Tottenham and is one of the area’s long-lost heroes. Come find out more about Balthazar and Tottenham’s hidden history, including its secret HQ the ‘Tottenham Cabal’, as you explore the game.
