It may only October, but Christmas planning mode is in full swing here at Tall Tales Mysteries.

Get in the Christmas spirit by enjoying one of our festive-themed murder mystery events at a venue near you.

We’ve had requests for private parties and corporate team-building events coming out of our ears so to save you some time, here’s a selection of public events around Christmas that still have tickets available.

Who Sleighed Santa (Middlesbrough)

The Father Christmas employed at the Wenceslas Department Store last year was a big hit. This years’ however is terrible!

When the real Santa from last year turns up dead in his red suit, everyone must work out whodunit. Can you solve this festive mystery?

Join us on Sunday, December 3, at Bloom Middlesbrough for a night of hilarity with our ever-popular Christmas show. Tickets start at £18, and please note that this venue requires guests to order at least a main course. To book, call 01642 242808.

Murder Among Thieves (Hartlepool)

Robbery, missing money, and greed means there’s no honour among these thieves and someone is about to resort to murder to make sure they get their hands on the loot.

This Christmas these thieves aren definitely not full of cheer and goodwill to all men (and women).

Our shows at Hardwicke Hall Manor Hotel always go down a  treat. Join us on Thursday, December 7, for a night of fabulous food and brilliant entertainment for just £34.95 per peron. Email to book.

Murder and the Grand Duchess (Whitby)

Lady Tara Fernow has invited her friends to meet the last surviving member of the Russian Royal Family, the Grand Duchess Anastasia. Is she really who she claims to be though?

Who is the Russian Count who has gatecrashed the party and who has murder on their mind? Lady Tara welcomes you to her home at Grinkle Park near Whitby for a party that’s sure to go with a bang on Saturday, December 9.

Tickets are just £55 each and include a wonderful three-course meal. Call 01287 640515 to book.

A Killing Among the Carols (Northallerton)

The carol singers have gathered to visit the grand homes of Northallerton. Today, however, there’s tension among the festive friends at Solberge Hall.
