What ho! Welcome to Lord Johnny Duxbury's Christmas party. The year is 1926 and the roaring twenties are in full swing, with the Charleston dance reaching the peak of its popularity. Meet Mitsy Wellbeloved, so vain and giddy, and known in some circles as a bit of a flibbertigibbet .
Henry 'Pongo' Brinkley, heir to the Omnigrip Tyre Company fortune is in town, hoping to pick up a little culture at the opera and, perhaps, find himself a wife. You will be a part of London's bright young things partying the night away without a care in the world ... that is until Inspector Catchem arrives with news of a murder that puts the wind up everyone present.
A scandal would look dashed bad for everyone and no-one wants their allowance cut off. After all, parents can be rather mouldy when it comes to making the newspapers.
Lord Duxbury's guests really do need your help in getting them out of this spot of bother. Come along, don't be such a stick! We'll see you there. Pip pip!
