About the Event

The Homecoming’ Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery and Dinner

£40 per person, includes three course meal with coffee to finish, and a souvenir script booklet to take home.

Join the Irregular Special Players- the only Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Company in the Country- for a three course meal with a difference!

After a short mixer quiz ‘The Homecoming’ Mystery gets underway with the arrival of William Oakington, who is returning to Oakington Hall after four years away from home.

The happy occasion turns sour when head of the family, Oscar Oakington, loses his temper over a trivial matter, and later a dead body is discovered!  It’s time for Sherlock Holmes to put his sleuthing skills to the test, but can you work out who committed the murder and why?

In this participatory event, the action takes place between courses, giving guests the chance to hunt for clues.  Holmes will eliminate his suspects over coffee, and prizes will be awarded to guests who successfully crack the case.

Murder Mystery Night Menu:

  • Salad of late summer vegetables, goat’s cheese curd, apple cider dressing and sourdough croute.
  • A roast rump of Kentish lamb with minted pea puree, rosemary potatoes, shallot and smoked Ashmore tatin and pommes. Vegetarian alternative available by request)
  • Vanilla panna cotta with butter roasted pears and chocolate Chantilly.
