Carnival Chase Event Announced

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by slow strobe lights through dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger’s signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

Journey to the End of the Night is a race through the streets of Lancaster, starting at Alfred Street Car Park at 7.30pm. You will try to make it to six checkpoints as fast as you can, while avoiding being caught by chasers. Those who survive will be praised and feted at the end. Those who fall will become chasers themselves, rising to pursue their former friends and allies.

Only your own two feet are allowed. No bicycles, no skates, no cars, no taxis. This race is for you, your fellow players, and our city!

• This is a community event and a fun game for adults (but can be played by families and older, accompanied children - arrive early to avoid the chasers!)
