Lost and Found Competition

Competition closes Sunday 4 November 2018

Can You Find Enchanted Park's Lost Treasures?

The House of Lost and Found needs your help this October Half Term. Treasures from their extensive collection of forgotten treasures have gone missing and are believed to be scattered to the four corners of the North East.

Enchanted Parks Lost and Found Competition

Keep your eyes peeled as you visit attractions, museums, galleries, libraries and cafes during half term and make sure to alert us immediately if you find anything. From a dainty leather glove, once-loved bracelet and forgotten binoculars to a tartan bow tie, button box and map of Tyneside – this eclectic mix of items once cherished by their owners and now under the temporary care of The House of Lost and Found have somehow made their way to over 20 venues across Gateshead, Newcastle and Sunderland. Track down the random treasures - you'll know what you're looking for as each has a luggage tag marked with "Temporary Property of The House of Lost and Found." 

If found, please alert The House of Lost and Found immediately by taking a picture of the item and posting to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using #EPLostandFound.
