MM Cropped

Alternate Shadows Theatre Group Proudly Present An Original Murder Mystery Adventure at the iconic Eastgate House.

Saturday, 6 October Various times from 7.30pm. Tickets £8 available here.

What caused Explorer and Treasure Hunter Cedric Cuthbert to die of fright?

On the night of a full moon, Cedric awoke the household with a blood curdling scream. By the time the Butler had broken down the locked study door, Cedric was dead, a look of  sheer terror on his frozen face and notably, the cursed emeralds from the tomb of a Peruvian Tribal King are nowhere to be found.

Mysterious goings on indeed!

Come along and join in a promenade theatrical experience and help the detective solve this puzzling case.

The adventure takes 50 minutes and there are four time slots available – see ticket page for details.

In its place we will be running a Creative Retreat in the Bishop’s House and would like to invite writers, poets, artists and other creatives to join us. Bishopscourt is a wonderfully inspiring place offering all sorts of spaces to write, draw and collaborate. (No messy work though!)
