It’s a big day on the calendar for the kids these days but October 31st isn’t just for children! We’ve created some fantastic Halloween murder mysteries for us grown-ups to have some fun too.
This year our Murder At The Masked Ball joins our Halloween murder mysteries catalogue. We love it and we think you will too! It’s a murder mystery that gives you the chance to get dressed up and don a mask too – although obviously you don’t have to.
The story revolves around lottery winners Frank and Gladys Lee who are so out of place when they use their millions to move into a luxury mansion only to have their neighbours looking down their noses at them. Well, that’s almost bound to lead to murder.
We’ve added a few surprises to this one but as with everything we do there will be plenty of things to laugh at too!
So where can you find our Halloween murder mysteries around the North East this October and November?
On Friday October 11th we’re at The Head Of Steam Museum in Darlington with Murder Between The Lines with crime writer Austin Tayshus about to launch his latest book. But this book is a true crime investigation and not everyone is happy. Will Austin live long enough to reveal whodunit? You can book your tickets here.
Skipping ahead to Friday October 25th you can find our lovely Murder & Mischief plot at the Blue Flames Social Club in Newcastle. Sir Ivor Mansion is convinced there’s a ghostly captain aboard his new yacht so he’s hired two world famous mediums to get rid of the spook. Will Hector and Esther Plasm be able to reach the ghost or is this just a figment of Sir Ivor’s imagination? Tickets include a buffet and are £12. Just call 0191 270 0885.
