The Game is Afoot

27th July - 1st September

Three children are looking for clues. The child on the left holds a book, the centre child has a magnifying glass, the child on the right has a camera. A ship is behind them.

Become a Dockyard Detective this summer. The year is 1887 and Chatham Dockyard is awash with whispers of treachery. Rumours are rife that secrets have been sold to foreign lands, sparking a scandal that threatens the very foundation of the Royal Navy. Professor Elgar, Director of Dockyards, and his officials of the Admiralty are in turmoil. Confidential plans and drawings of torpedo vessels and torpedoes have been leaked and the hunt for the elusive “Torpedo Turncoat” has begun. Despite relentless efforts, the Admiralty and dockyard officials are stumped, their search for the traitor fruitless.

CAN YOU HELP CRACK THE CASE? Channel your inner Sherlock Holmes, follow the clues and discover if you have what it takes to solve a mystery lost to history. Only the sharpest minds will triumph.

Don your deerstalker and become a Dockyard Detective for the game is afoot …
