You've probably heard of the rock finding phenomenon that started in America and is now sweeping across the UK. You might even have found one or two on your travels. Now we've got our own rocks out there and they're nestled into public places all over Oxfordshire. Our rocks come with a little added incentive...

If you find one of our rocks, take a photo of yourself with it and post the photo on our Facebook page or on Twitter. On Sunday 19th November we'll be taking the names of everyone who has found one of our rocks and entering them into our prize draw. One person's name will be drawn at random and they will win family tickets to the spectacular performance of Jack and the Beanstalk at Oxford Playhouse on Sunday 3rd December. Don't miss this opportunity to get outdoors and have some fun because you might just be the lucky one who wins!

Don't forget, if you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter then you'll be able to see when the winner has been announced. You'll also be able to find out about all the other great things happening in Oxfordshire.

About the rocks

All of the rocks have been painted with child-safe paint which has fully dried before being displaced into the community.

All rocks were originally located in safe locations around public places and not putting anyone at risk, eg away from roadsides, not on slippery surfaces, away from rivers and ponds, on sensible low levels (nothing over a small child's head height) etc. Please be considerate if you choose to rehide any of the rocks.

Find rocks near you

Rocks have been located in and around Oxfordshire including the following locations: Abingdon, Ardley, Bampton, Banbury, Bicester, Cutteslowe, Didcot, East Hendred, Headington, Kidlington, Kings Sutton, Kirtlington, Launton, Oxford, Steeple Aston, Steventon, Thame, Upper Heyford, Wheatley, Witney and more. 

You might find one rock in some places but three or four in other locations. Don't forget this is where we've put the rocks - they might get moved on if someone finds them and rehides them. If you find a rock, take a selfie with it and rehide it. The spirit of the rock hunt is to let other people enjoy the fun too so please don't move the rocks too far otherwise it's not really cricket.

We want everyone to enjoy taking part so tell your friends and tell your family. Happy rock hunting!
