Solve a murder mystery at the Bristol Hippodrome

Posted on: 14 Aug 2017

The Bristol Hippodrome will raise the curtain on their best-kept secret when they host a murder mystery supper on Friday 25th August.


Do you fancy yourself as something of a Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot? Or do you have much more of the Morse or Marple about you?


Get your detective on at the Bristol Hippodrome where the game is well and truly afoot at an evening hiding more than just a hint of homicide…


The theatre’s infamous murder mystery evening is back next Friday, offering inquisitive guests the chance to employ their powers of deduction in attempt to solve this strangest of cases.

Piano Bar Hippodrome

The evening begins, as all good evenings should, with a drink; at the Hippodrome’s Piano Bar, where the resident pianist will tinkle the ivories while the cast mingle amongst the audience, introducing themselves and their roles. Once this has occurred, guests will be invited to take their seats at the dinner table, where clues, red-herrings and secrets will perforate three courses of luxurious food.


These will comprise the key to unlocking the mystery and cracking the case – though misinterpretation of the backstory will lead to the finger pointing in the wrong direction and injustice being served.


Places at the table cost £39.75 and can be bought by emailing.


Period dress is encouraged - full details of the menu, storyline and time period will be sent out in advance via email.
