T’is the season to merrily go exploring! From archaeological dig sites around the world, and from the universities next door, members of the Wingback Society are congregating in London for the society’s annual festive gathering. But they seem to have hit a dilemma. Will this celebration be a night of stories and traditions, revelry and debauchery, or charity and philanthropy? It’s up to you to decide!

A Christmas Quarrel is the holiday variant of our Raiders of the Lost Archive games. Your team will have 90 minutes to crack the clues, explore the history of Winter celebrations, and solve the question once and for all: who can throw the most epic Christmas revelry ever? As always there will be a live leaderboard, cryptic clues, surprise challenges and roaming explorers. Assemble your team, choose your side, and use your best research and puzzle-solving abilities to prove you’re the best at merrymaking!

Duration 90 mins
Location V&A Museum of Childhood, Bethnal Green, London

The Museum of Childhood itself is fully accessible, but the briefing and debriefing venue may not be. We'd love to have you come along and we'll do everything we can to make sure you have a full experience. Just drop us an email in advance and we'll get it sorted.

Junior Adventurers

Kids are very welcome (and get Concession pricing)! There'll need to be at least one over-18 in each team.


The V&A Museum of Childhood is very happy to have us, but this is not an official MoC event. They have a full program of other events, as well as membership for those who are inspired to discover more!


All of our clues are in English, and you will need a basic grasp of the language in order to play. You do not need to be fluent, but it does help. Please get in touch if you have any language concerns.
