Evening Attire

What to expect?

The theme of the Murder Mystery is First Past the Racing Post. This is an excellent evening of entertainment and interaction working with everyone on your table to work out who the murderer is. The team of actors act out small come in during dinner leaving small clues for each table and we all work together to solve the mystery. Your host will meet you at the reception then take you through to meet the other guests at our tables. A three-course meal is included in the price and clients are asked to pay for their own beverages on the night. Special room rates are available for clients wishing to stay for Bed and breakfast.

Paddy Donahue a top racing jockey, is joining Harry Fergusons stables and Harry has thrown this party to celebrate Paddy signing a contract. Many top names in the racing world will be there. But why are the Jockey Club so interested in this new contract? Is there anyone jealous about the move and would they kill to prevent it? You can bet on it!

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.
