Mur­der and black­mail on ex­press

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

SPEND an evening in a Sher­lock Holmes mur­der mys­tery at an event on a steam train near Peter­bor­ough.

Bud­ding de­tec­tives can step back in time to 1895 and see the in­de­fati­ga­ble Holmes at work with his loyal friend Dr Wat­son on the Or­ton Ex­press at the Nene Val­ley Rail­way on May 26.

The evening will start at Wans­ford Sta­tion at 6.45pm with the mur­der mys­tery un­fold­ing dur­ing the course of a three-course meal on the train as it makes a 15-mile jour­ney to Peter­bor­ough Sta­tion and back.

A spokesman for the rail­way said: “Step back in time to 1895. Step back and be­come in­volved in a story of black­mail and in events lead­ing to mur­der.

“And who bet­ter to ex­pose the foul per­pe­tra­tor than Mr Sher­lock Holmes aided by his loyal friend Dr Wat­son, who will be join­ing you on the Or­ton Ex­press dur­ing the course of your 15-mile steam-hauled jour­ney.”

The Mur­der Mys­tery wine and dine ticket costs £32.50 per head and is suit­able for over 18s only, which in­cludes a com­pli­men­tary glass of straw­berry sparkle or fruit juice and three-course meal.
