On June 30th Wealden Business Group hosted a Murder Mystery Evening at Little Silver Country Hotel in Tenterden. The case was The Curse of the Willoughby Diamond.
The evening started with champagne as we were shown to our tables, we were hosted on a table by local members who were excellent company.
We enjoyed an excellent 3 course meal to die for!! During the meal the actors presenting the murder mystery developed the plot of the murder and murder was indeed committed.
We were then invited to use our sleuthing skills to question the cast to see if we could identify the guilty party. Our table asked some interesting questions, however we did not fine the killer.
The murderer was eventually declared and everyone in the room was a bit surprised but less so after being given the details of the crime.
There were several very good 1920 costumes, the winners Gary and Clair Bodie were chosen by a panel who were judging for the best couple, which was unfortunate for one girl on our table who was dazzling in a 20’s outfit, however her partner was not in period dress, so could not win.
The evening ended with an announcement that Murder Mystery had raised over £3000 for the Moor Neurone Disease Association in East Kent.
