The Word will be chillier than normal on Saturday 4 March as a group of Killer Women descend.

The group, who are all London-based crime writers, will be bringing the world of the criminal to life with a thrilling afternoon of crime-based conversation and fun.

First of all, writers Erin Kelly, Katie Medina, Helen Smith and Kate Rhodes will be posing the question “Deadlier than the male. Women and crime-writing”

The audience will then be given the chance to play detective as the four Killer Women perform an exclusive murder mystery, complete with alibis, forensics and red herrings for the audience to solve.

Finally, as the afternoon ends, the audience of crime fanatics will be given the opportunity to test their memory for the macabre with a special Killer Quiz.

Funding received from Arts Council England

The cost includes the full afternoon.

Suitable for those aged 14 years+.
