Age Recommendation: 10+

Wander amongst the grottos, lawns and woodlands surrounding this stunning Jacobean manor house – the perfect setting for a murder mystery!

Don your detective cap and join us for some superlative silliness to kick off our open air season. This original murder mystery will set five suspects under the spotlight and we will depend on the audience to find answers. Who was lurking in the corridor carrying a candlestick? When did the third gunshot go off?

Answers to these and other equally important questions will only be uncovered as we make ‘Much Ado About Murder’

With thanks to Wroxton Abbey – home to Wroxton College of Fairleigh Dickinson University
