THATmuse at Christmas: Festive Feasting and Foodie Fun

SEEN looks forward to THATmuse (Treasure Hunt At The Museum) as Christmas approaches. A ‘Festive Feasting’ hunt will launch on 25th November exhorting visitors to seasonal merriment in their search for foodie treasures at the Victoria & Albert museum.

They do things differently over the pond, hence THATmuse founder, American expat Daisy de Plume (daughter of an astute art historian who knew how to keep her engaged in discovery in a museum setting as a child) has combined Thanksgiving with Christmas fun: Visitors must compete to photograph themselves with as many Bacchanalian delights on their clue list as possible, within a set time.

So, prepare yourselves to search out ancient Korean spoons, gilded French salt cellars and all manner of accoutrements for a good old-fashioned feast. But also brace yourselves for light-hearted fun as a charades-style set of questions will also involve hunters’ participation…

The hunts last one-and-a-half to two hours and are just one of the many diversions available to visitors. The outdoor rink is already a firm favourite with skaters and there are exhibitions you can visit: Winnie-the-Pooh, Lou Stoppard, Opera…

There is a variety of hunt packages to suit families, groups and festive parties and no prior knowledge of the museum’s collections is necessary. Daisy commented: ‘My goal in creating the museum hunts is to inject a fresh perspective to a familiar space, hopefully planting the seed to want to return for a closer (& less competitive!) look.’
