Can you unmask the mysterious sweetshop vandal? 

When Brighton’s first major international rock festival was cancelled at the last minute due to ‘legal difficulties’, it sparked widespread rioting and violence across the city. One of the victims of the damage was local businessman Roger Whitby, who had his historic seafront sweet shop wrecked and sprayed with graffiti. While the police called it a random act of violence, Whitby was sure that he had been deliberately targeted in an attempt to cause him financial harm.

Why was Whitby’s sweet shop targeted? Who was behind this act of vandalism? And why was the rock festival really cancelled? Rumours circulated that a local undercover reporter had the full story of the crime, but his article mysteriously disappeared.

Use your Brighton Mystery Guide to explore historic streets, unravel the story, and track down the shadowy vandal behind this legendary 60s mystery. On your journey you will be challenged with a range of cryptic clues including word games, maths puzzles, and hidden objects, as you immerse yourself in a unique story adventure and discover the best of Brighton’s fascinating history.
