Chillisauce to bring Hunted programme to life in new experience

Agency Chillsauce has teamed up with characters from Channel 4 programme Hunted to launch The Hunt Live, a new event based on the reality show.

The team-building experience aims to develop participants’ communication, focus and co-operation abilities, as their observation and strategy skills are put to the test in a real-life mission.

It will begin with a briefing from surveillance specialists, where participants, who will work in teams, learn about real national security threats. They will then be given an operational brief and background information about the suspects they will be following.

Before being deployed on their mission, team members will be required to complete a range of tasks typically designed for security service personnel. These include map reading, observing, radio voice procedures, and entering or covering premises where a suspect is located. 

Once deployed, teams will be required to track their targets, gaining as much information about them as possible without getting caught.

The experience can be created on a bespoke basis, in respect to the surroundings of local towns and cities across the UK, and stars from the show, such as intelligence expert Ben Owen and undercover detective Peter Bleksley, can be hired for the events.

Owen said: "My team and I are incredibly excited about working with Chillisauce. We have great confidence that our events will not only serve to provide participants with a fantastically unique adventure, but also open their eyes to the hugely fascinating world of covert operations.

 "The television show Hunted was a huge success and we are constantly being asked by the public if they could give it a go - well, now's the chance, everyone and anyone can experience the thrill of the Hunted experience."

Lauren Troughton, digital marketing and PR assistant at Chillsauce added: "Having participated in the event itself with Ben Owen, our event experts can assure everyone that it’s an exciting, heart-pounding experience that can’t be compared to anything else. It’s particularly interesting when you consider your company's and your own personal privacy, security and digital footprint.

"Experiences like these capture people's imagination and events that have been seen on TV are always popular. With the second series of Hunted on the screens later this year, we expect The Hunt Live will be just as popular as the Big Brother, The British Bakeoff and the Crystal Maze inspired events that we also offer."

Chillsauce revealed exclusively to Event last year that it was to deliver a live Big Brother experience.
