Murder Mystery Evening
The Owl & the Pussycat Ball - 23 November
Join us for an evening of murder, mystery, suspense & thrills on Friday 23rd November!
The Owl & the Pussycat Ball, inspired by Edward Lear – A case of poisoned honey and plenty of money…
It’s the roaring 20s and the annual Owl & Pussycat Ball is in full swing. The ball celebrates the famous poem by Edward Lear, a guest of the hotel in the 19th century. The occasion has evolved into a glamorous masked ball, at a time of great celebration after the Great War.
One of the country’s most eligible bachelors, Clifton Bridges, has left society in suspense by announcing his intended engagement but not disclosing the name of his intended fiancé. Bridges has been linked to many women including the much admired actress Ava Everett and Lady Grace Branston, the daughter of the late Lord Branston.
Ava’s uncle Harold has expressly forbidden the marriage and when his body is discovered in suspicious circumstances a murder investigation begins.
Join high society for an evening of glamour and intrigue. There is an old French saying, ‘Sous le masque, la vérité!’ – Beneath the mask, the truth! Will you be able to help our investigating officer to discover the truth in this case?
