Twelve Runaway Reindeers painted by local artists, have escaped around Gloucester city centre! Can you help Gloucester BID find them?
Maps were available at the Museum of Gloucester so you could explore Gloucester to find the missing reindeers.
Painted by local artists, each of the reindeers has a letter on its front. If you wrote down the letter you see, on your printed map, you could discover special words you could send in to enter the Reindeer competition. If you found all twelve reindeers and the special words you could have been in with a chance of winning a £500 Gloucester gift card!
