About the event

Dress up and role-play as one of Charles Dickens’ most beloved characters as you unravel the mysterious Murder at Satis Manor, all the while proclaiming your innocence! A Christmas Dinner like no other, as you discover the horrors of each of your fellow dinner guests Suspects, and their alibis. Everyone is a Suspect... are YOU the Murderer? Along with a few morbid Christmas Carols, this is one Killer evening you won’t soon forget! Want to Win a Prize?

The Two Best Dressed Suspects on the night, will WIN a Prize from the Murder Master®! The conditions of this competition are below.

Miss Havisham, jilted? Miss Havisham was left at the altar by her fiancé 23 years ago.

Her mansion is now in ruins and Havisham’s days are spent in a haze of madness. She continues to wear her wedding dress.

But something has occurred that has summoned a moment of clarity. A skeleton has been dug up on the property. A mutilated, murdered corpse, that at least for Miss Havisham must be her lost fiancé.

Is it possible that after all these years she was not in fact jilted? But who committed this atrocity? A plan is set forth, as the very guests that were present on her wedding day 23 years ago receive invitations to spend Christmas Eve at the Satis Manor, and within the Christmas merriment a murderer will be uncovered.

A homicidally hilarious Christmas Dinner Event; a Murder Mystery game featuring some of your favourite Dickens’ characters… The Programme

Over a sumptuous 3-course Christmas feast, you and your fellow Dickens character Suspects will sort through the clues and investigate who dunnit.

Perhaps YOU are the murderer! The Murder Master®

Your bloody evening will begin with canapés, during which you will mingle with your fellow suspects. The Murder Master® will attend and introduce you to the evening’s proceedings.

Taking your seat at tables of 10, the Murder Mystery will begin. As your Host guides you through the rest of the evening, you will hurl accusations at the other guests, while protecting yourself from slanderous allegations.

Investigations will continue over dinner…

At the end of the evening, while lingering over dessert, you will have the opportunity to lay out the results of your inquiries and point the finger at who you suspect is the murderous culprit!

Once you and your fellow guests have outlined their cases, the Murder Master® will reveal the identity of the murderer (or murderers).

For some extra bloodthirsty fun, you’ll sing some almost familiar tunes from the Bloody Christmas Carol song book.
