We have regular Murder Mystery dinners at Chilworth Manor near Southampton. The hotel is just 4 miles from Southampton and just off the M27 and M3 motorways. It has a spa and swimming pool and 12 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds. The building in impressive and has the right feel for a Murder Mystery, with a beautiful galleried main hall.
Set in the 1920s (costumes encouraged). Lord Quentin Crump is dead and his dyfunctional family have gathered to find out what is in his will for them. His second wife used to be his housekeeper, and her lonely marriage has sent her to seek comfort in the drink cabinet. However, having become lady of the manor she has also become accustomed to her lifestyle and does not want to return to drinking the cooking sherry.
His son Roland has a penchant for fast women and slow horses, and needs the money to settle certain commitments. His brother, as second son, was denied the house that he grew up in and the title and is not so much carrying a chip on his shoulder as the whole bag of potatoes. They all want to get their dues, whatever the cost!
Solve this mystery for £49 including a three course meal and the show. Overnight accommodation costs an additional £89 including breakfast for two.
