Business people in Sheffield can experience the life of a secret agent at an event with a difference.

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce has created ‘Hunters and Seekers’, a fundraising activity for the Master Cutler’s Challenge.

Participants will be split into groups of between six and eight people and will be playing the role of secret agents as they battle it out across the city.

Half of the team will be based in ‘Op Control’ back at base, while remaining team members will be out on the streets being directed by their team mates.

The team outside will have to talk to different ‘agents’ in order to gain clues and complete tasks, while also being chased by an elite ‘Hunters Force’ – a group of real soldiers from the British Army!

In ‘Op Control’, the team’s role will be to guide the rest of their team to the places they need to be. Their job will be to make sense of any clues the team down on the ground find, as well as helping them avoid the chasing soldiers.

The event is a Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Expert Leadership Training project that is aimed to raise funds and awareness of the Master Cutler’s Challenge, which ends in September.

Event manager Kate Stephenson said: “Ever fancied yourself as a secret agent?

“Well , now is your chance to fulfil that life-long dream and become a super sleuth as you and your team scour the city for clues.”

The ‘Hunters and Seekers’ challenge will take place on Saturday, September 6, from 10am to 4pm.
