Event description
Join us as we travel to 1923 and the home of Lord and Lady Rothersfield for this delightful comedy mystery.

About this event

It is 1923 and the Dowager Lady Dorothy Rothersfield is hosting a party to celebrate her forthcoming birthday, and tomorrow morning the family will sit, as is the tradition, for a family portrait.

Her two children, nice but dim Lord Anthony, and the delightfully ditzy Annabel believe they will one day inherit their mother's fortune. When the Dowager announces her plans to change her will and potentially disinherit them in favour of the butler and cook, tempers fray, accusations fly above and below stairs, and plotting to 'do away' with the Dowager begins.

When a death occurs, Inspector Harry Moody and local Police Constable Joe Sullen, are tasked with muddling their way through the evidence and finding the culprit or culprits! Having seen these two in action, they are definitely going to need your help.

Described as Gentleman Jack and Downton Abbey meet the Pink Panther, this delightful comedy mystery is a must for lovers of family dramas, crime fiction, silliness and fun.

  • Video footage

  • Live suspect interrogations (optional)

How to play

On Wednesday 26th May on you will receive by email your joining instructions, explaining how to play and introducing the story and the suspects.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday you will receive, by email, video footage, evidence, clues and information related to the crime(s). View the video and consider the clues each day at a time convenient to you, or if you prefer binge watch everything at the weekend.

On the evening of Saturday 29th or Sunday 30th May 2021 you have the option* to attend a 'live' interrogation of the suspects via Zoom video conferencing where your skillful questioning can uncover new clues and confirm or break alibis. If you would prefer not to attend the Zoom interrogation, that is fine, a recording of an interrogation will be emailed to you on Sunday evening. That way you won't miss a thing

Public interrogations take place at 7pm, 8pm each evening. Depending on numbers, a third interrogation at 9pm may be added.

Submit your solution by 6.30pm on Monday 31st May 2021 then all will be revealed and the winner announced.
