Murder Mystery in the Kiln – A Terrible Fete!

23 July 2022 - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Are you a ‘Super Sleuth’ or a ‘Daring Detective’?! Join us for an evening of history, murder and mystery in our Grade II bottle kiln – ‘A Terrible Fete’!

“Its 1962 and it’s time again for the annual Little Legover Village Fete, but this year the usual feeling of community spirit is over-shadowed with scandalous gossip and rumours. As a tradition, village Mayor George Moorehouse and his prize wife Penelope always judge the infamous cake baking competition. Will the competition go to plan or will murder play a part in the result?”

Murder mystery at Sharpe’s Pottery is a great way to spend the evening, which begins as soon as you enter the iconic Bottle Kiln. From there you will be summoned to dinner with the awful news that a crime has been committed. Scenes will be played out in front of you between courses – watch and listen carefully for clues, because after dessert you will be asked to turn detective and write down who you think the murderer is at vintage village fete.

Including a 3 course meal from Sweet Caroline, glass of wine and a whole evening of entertainment unravelling the mystery of “Who dunnit”!

Tickets £55 per person.
