Mur­der mys­tery night to lure all Mid­somer fans to the pub

Bring your friends and take part in en­trepreneur’s crime solv­ing party at The Bell

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

BUCK­ING­HAMSHIRE has had its fair share of foul deeds thanks to the film­ing of Mid­somer Mur­ders in the county, and now peo­ple have the chance to in­ves­ti­gate their very own who­dun­nit this Hal­loween.

Af­ter many years of run­ning par­ties and teach­ing for var­i­ous com­pa­nies, lo­cal ac­tress, singer and come­di­enne Mi­randa Dawe has cre­ated her own new busi­ness, called That Silly Who­dunit, host­ing mur­der mys­tery and crime-ca­per par­ties for nine years and up all the way to adults.

Ms Dawe is host­ing an event ti­tled Dead in Chelsea - OMG a Totes AW­FUL Mur­der! at The Bell in Char­tridge on Fri­day from 7pm.

The par­tic­i­pants be­come the sus­pects and play the char­ac­ters, led by a de­tec­tive, played by a pro­fes­sional ac­tor.

She added: “The Bell is my lo­cal pub and I’ve pre­vi­ously per­formed in Christ­mas con­certs and run pub quizzes for it so I thought an i nt er a c t i v e mur­der mys­ter y din­ner would be fun. Un­like a stan­dard mur­der my st e r y , where you sit back and watch , you’ll be much more handso n , play­ing thep­arts your­selves from your ta­ble as well as eat­ing The Bell’s de­li­cious food – def­i­nitely a dif­fer­ent, fun night out!”

Ms Dawe, a former Che­sham Gram­mar School pupil, said: “I’ve worked for years in chil­dren’s par­ties. I could see there was a gap in the mar­ket for more grown-up par­ties, aimed at chil­dren aged nine to 13 so I started work­ing on the scripts as a joint project with my mum, cre­ative writ­ing tu­tor Linda. Af­ter tri­alling scripts we felt we could ex­pand and ad­just the par­ties and now we have many dif­fer­ent themes in­clud­ing Dead in Chelsea – spoof­ing Made in Chelsea – Once Upon a Crime: The Princess Diaries, and The Mys­tery of Up­ton Abbey, for Down­ton Abbey fans.”

At the mur­der mys­tery, ev­ery ta­ble works as a team and will be as­signed a char­ac­ter for the night.

A team can be as small as two peo­ple and larger groups may be as­signed two or three char­ac­ters.

The tale un­folds around a three-course meal with more in­for­ma­tion be­ing re­vealed be­tween each course. The event costs £15 for two cour­ses or £19 for three cour­ses.
