Murder Mystery Evening

This event has passed.

A 1940s Cluedo-themed murder mystery.
In 1947 the arts were thriving in a post war Britain and Robert Black’s theatre ‘The Black House’ is also thriving. To celebrate this Black has invited some of the key players to dinner; his best friend and in-house director William Cyan; his partner and in-house writer Miss Stella Moss; his ambitious stage manager Stanley Thistle; the egotistical lead actress Jessica Maroon; the sweet up-and-coming actress Daisy Cotton; and the narcissistic lead actor Laurence Buttercup. Is this party Black’s finest work or his final curtain?

During the evening the host goes missing… where is he? What happened? You and your fellow guests will need to explore the Priory by torchlight to find your host and ensure that no one else is lurking in the dark recesses of this impressive location. By carefully putting together the clues left by your host will you be able to establish not only the murderer, the weapon but the room in which it occurred.

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 dinner event last approximately 3 hours and involves interaction with actors and group participation – this event offers a truly unique perspective to the Priory at night.
