Street Hunt is a kind of visual crossword puzzle, a treasure hunt where the riches are road names, a story emerging from the page and your chance to win up to £6,000.

A poem has been written with words from St Helens road names. A book of photographs shows the street signs and their surroundings but with the names removed. You have to work out what the streets are using the emerging story of the poem to help you.

The first person to submit a correctly completed book with all the right answers wins. The more people that play the game and join Street Hunt, the bigger the prize! There’s a guaranteed minimum prize of £1,000 and a maximum of £6,000 if all the books are sold.

Street Hunt is about St Helens and the wonders of its street names.

It is about getting out into the streets, travelling around the borough and talking to people. Get your copy now, and start your Street Hunt!

Street Hunt by Joshua Sofaer, produced in St Helens by Heart of Glass, was originally commissioned by Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
