Work out who did the murder over your dinner

Work out who did the murder over your dinner


Want to watch a murder over your Friday night dinner? A murder mystery set in Victorian England will unfold its mysteries in front of diners at the King Edward VI at Almshoe, Saffron Walden on December 8 and at Abbey Barn, St Marks College, Audley End on December 15.

The plot is full of twists that the actors do not want to give away but it involves the cobbled streets where Jack the Ripper held terrifying sway in the 1888.

The audience will dine by candle light and will served by waitresses in costume, some of whom will be actors.

Every one will be invited to sit at their table by Jeeves, the butler and then will be told the beginning of the story: a murder takes place at a smart dinner party, rather like the one they have joined, hosted by a lord and lady.

Various short scenes will give the guests ideas that something is going on and there will be clues throughout the evening.

To accompany the show, a three course meal will be presented by Quintessential Catering by chef, Maxine Quinn. Tickets, £45 from
