Murder in Bloodford Village is the second murder mystery event put on by the theatre after last year’s sell out Murder on the Churchill Express.
The Lichfield Garrick’s main stage will be transformed into Bloodford Village as audience members are invited to solve the murder of millionaire Charles Van Mortem, who is found strangled to death with his own telephone cord.
But who killed him? His wife, Olivia? The local reporter, Danny Fox? The timid Reverend Chaste? And what about the cabaret singing duo Errol and Stella De'Ath? You are the detective and only you can solve the crime!
Taking you back to the 1920’s, Murder in Bloodford Village has a very traditional ‘Agatha Christie’ whodunnit feel, with hilarious characters and gags. This interactive evening allows audience members to question the cast and more importantly to get sleuthing alongside a theatre dining experience.
The evening includes a summer buffet made by Simon Smith, known for this imaginative and creative menus. Patrons are also encouraged to arrive early to take part in a pre-show Summer Fete.
