How does it work?

Each day throughout Manchester Histories Festival (21st- 30th March) a task will be released on Twitter (@bellevueshow). Your first task is to look out for these and respond!

Perhaps we’ll ask you to pop down to Manchester Museum, take a selfie with the Maharajah and upload your pic to Twitter.  Maybe you’ll need to correctly answer a Belle Vue-related question, locate some Belle Vue archive, or scan a QR code at the Showground of the World exhibition.

By completing tasks, you play the game and earn points: you’ve probably guessed that points win prizes! Track your score on the leader board above. Bonus points are available if you can locate and upload original Belle Vue archive to aid the creation of the digital map.

You can also score points for tweeting @bellevueshow from the Showground of the World exhibition.


Play Show and Tell and you could win...
