Summer Fete - Saturday 6th July

Midsummer Murder at the Museum - Saturday 27th July

“It is July 1962, and you are invited to a garden party at the Priest House by the tenacious Hilda Coles to promote the opening of her new museum. A glittering array of local notables are invited to the opening but are all the guests quite as they seem? Are there grudges still lurking within the local history societies?

As the speeches begin in the garden, one of the guests of honour is still missing, and on investigation, they are found murdered. The public must help investigate this terrible crime, by splitting into teams and interrogating the six suspects positioned around the museum.

With refreshments available from the tea room, baffling suspects who will evade your questioning  – will you have solved the mystery before time, or the scones, run out?”
