Murder Mystery Fish & Chip Special

6th July, 31st August, 28th September, 12th October

Join us for one of our popular Murder Mystery evenings!

There's been a murrrder... And given that the Police have drawn a blank on apprehending the villain, it's up to you to sleuth it out over a few drinks on the train.

The scene is the sleepy little Cornish village of Morlington Hill during the 1940's and your job is to help the 368 theatre company solve the murder!

Come along to try your hand at solving a murder, it is up to you to find out who dunnit, you might even win a prize! The evening starts at Tunbridge Wells West Station with a briefing at 18:15 sharp, then we transfer to our train where the story gets more interesting as the night draws in. On our way out of Tunbridge Wells West enjoy a Fish and Chip supper as you travel through the wonderful High Weald countryside to Groombridge. Upon arrival at our country branch line station more of the story will unfold and you will need to be on the platform not to miss the action. On return to Tunbridge Wells West an ice cream dessert will be served. Our Bar car "Kate", will be open for the whole journey.

We have another trip to Groombridge giving you time to come up with who you think may have committed the dastardly deed!

The evening finishes back at Tunbridge Wells West in our shed when all will become clear. These evenings are great fun in groups so why not get a party together for this unique evening?
