Murder Mystery Dinner - 14th October 2017

Murder Mystery Dinner

Saturday 14th October 2017

Death on the Prom

It’s the roaring 20’s; a time of hope, prosperity, industrialisation, liberating fashion, jazz and family trips to the good old British seaside.

Keen to take in some of that ‘bracing sea air’, the Balderdash family have joined the many other Britons that make the pilgrimage to the coast for sun, sea and sand each summer.

Unfortunately their stay has coincided with a rather gruesome murder.  Eustace Tait, friend of the family and a well-known art and antiquities dealer, has been found dead on the promenade.  Coincidence? 

Someone at the hotel is obviously responsible for his death, but the question is, whodunnit?

Overnight accommodation is also available in our supremely comfortable bedrooms.

Perfect for office parties, anniversaries, birthdays and celebrations

Inclusive Murder Mystery Dinner Price: £47.50 per person (FULL PREPAYMENT REQUIRED)

For more information or to book your places please call 01884 252777 or email 



The suspects:

Brigadier John Balderdash  (Head of the family)

Wealthy and loud, Brigadier Balderdash expects his family to be well drilled and operating at peak efficiency.

Charlotte (Lottie) Balderdash (The Brigadier’s wife)

Homely and comfortable, Lottie dotes on her husband and her daughter and has very few faults.

Carlotta (Lotta) Balderdash (The Brigadier’s daughter)

Never without her sketch pad, Carlotta creates sculptures and has an artistic temperament which matches her appearance.

Vincent Creswell (Traditional English Gentleman)

Chivalrous and car-mad, Vincent Creswell is reliable, honest and absolutely scrupulous.

Reverend Verde (The local vicar)

Submissive and carefully enunciated, Reverend Verde enjoys his garden, his knitting, and tending to his Christian flock.
