2018 Dates

Fri 29th June 2018 – Abigail's Divorce NEW DATE - SOLD OUT 

Abigail and James have split – and Abigail is celebrating escaping James’ grip with a huge party, to which you are invited. It might seem spiteful, but in the light of Abigail’s recounts of James being a demanding, controlling and abusive husband, supporting her getting over him is what a good friend should do, right? However, when James turns up pleading for Abigail to take him back, telling her that he still loves her, and quite clearly demonstrating his ability to take care of her, what with all that money, the party doesn’t end up going exactly to plan.

Fri 20th July 2018 – Game, Set & Match (Optional Costume – Standard Party Wear) SOLD OUT

Lorna is delighted as it has now qualified her for Wimbledon. She is resolute that one day she will win the tournament and this could be her time!!

Lorna burns with a desire not only to win tennis's greatest competition but also to prove a point and to shame some of the biggest names in the tennis world, for Lorna hides a dark secret, a secret she has harboured for some time and is now fixed upon humiliation and revenge. In her eyes no one will get in her way and there is only one result..... Game, Set & Match!!!!

What to Expect from your Evening

All character roles in our murder mysteries are played by a cast of professional actors.

Your role during the event is to act as an investigator - questioning the suspects, watching the incidents, and, perhaps, discovering bodies! Guests are not required to act nor to be put into teams.

The action will unfold around you and you will have the opportunity to interrogate all the suspects. You are also encouraged to freely roam the restaurant and to talk to characters as often as you wish.

The event will be continuous throughout. Be careful you don't miss anything!

Evidence will be displayed for you to study.
Please note that you may find yourself seated with guests from other parties and there will almost certainly be a character from the cast on your table.

Large groups may be required to be split amongst two tables and a character involved in the cast may be required to sit with you.


How to Participate

Bring a note pad and a pen with you to jot down everything you hear.

Interrogate the suspects. They may have something to hide.

Listen carefully to what the suspects are saying to each other.

Read the evidence that is displayed.

Watch for any hidden facial expression that may give away a guilty secret.

Be suspicious and trust your instincts.

Above all, stay alert and keep your eyes and ears open. Trust no one. The person sitting next to you may be a murderer.


£45 per person.

In order to avoid disappointment, Please call our events department on 01527 541511 to make a booking.
