Leiston Long Shop Murder Mystery Evening
18th March 2017, 7.30pm
Travel back in time to the scene of the crime to witness the aftermath of some dark deeds at this year’s murder mystery at the museum!

It’s several centuries ago, in the area around Mildenhall. The local laird is about to sit down to a feast with family and friends but the festivities are interrupted by the discovery of a body in his pond…

There are a myriad suspects in the frame. Characters include a local squire and his wife, serving wench, milkmaid, peasant farmer, priest, alchemist, housekeeper, cook, farmhand and various musicians. All are potentially guilty but can you work out what the real motive was, and who dunnit?

You can enjoy a medieval banquet in the barn while you try and solve the puzzle. Led by East Anglian crime writer and murder mystery specialist Mark Mower who has served up countless literary and dramatic renditions, this promises to be a highly engaging and suspense filled evening which is designed to run alongside a three course dinner.

7.30 pm.  Tickets - £25.00 and include a 3 course meal.  Please click 'Phone' to obtain number for bookings. Museum is unlicensed so feel free to bring along your own mead (or another beverage of your choice).
