It is 1843 and Mr Fezziwig is holding his annual Christmas Party in the splendour of a candlelit Michelham Priory. Jacob Marley is guest of honour for the evening but as other Dickensian characters arrive Mr Marley goes missing – who might be responsible for his disappearance. Was it the deplorable Daniel Quilp, the hard working Kate Nickleby, the mysterious Jack Dawkins, the caring Amy Dorrit, the cold Estella Havisham, or the mean Ebenezer Scrooge. What has happened, will your fellow revellers hold the clues to his disappearance?

Enjoy a superb meal and drinks, interrogate the characters, work together to identify the murderer and decide the motive and method of the crime. Then when coffee is served you can reach your conclusions and all will be revealed.

The party lasts approximately 3 hours and involves interaction with actors and Victorian Parlour Games – offering a unique perspective to the Priory at night in the magical setting of the Michelham Priory.
