OPTION 1 – Christmas Murder Mystery at the Museum


OPTION 1 – Christmas Murder Mystery at the Museum  – £44.95

Who killed Governor Barnaby? You and your group of super sleuths will be investigating this murder most foul while enjoying food and drink in Nottingham’s Shire Hall and County Gaol!

Doors open at 6.30pm for you to enjoy a pre-tour drink from our licensed bar in the exuberant atmosphere of our 250 year old Shire Hall.

From 7pm we will begin to escort groups through to the Criminal Courtroom where the case will be explained and you will have the opportunity to move through the prison questioning the key suspects, and enjoy a complimentary glass of mulled wine in the depths of the prison.

Between 8.30pm and 9.00pm we will seat guests for their 3 course meal, served in the original Victorian Grand Jury Room. During dinner you will have further opportunities to question the key suspects in the case and decide who did it, ascertain the nature of the weapon used, and discover the reason Governor Barnaby met his untimely end, until finally the murderer will be revealed!

After this there will be time to have more drinks in the licensed bar and there will be Disco music late to finish the night’s festivities!
