Who Killed Maggie Mirren?
DATE 6thAPRIL AT 7.30PM TO APPROX 10PM
A Murder / Mystery evening written and acted out by the Kibworth Theatre Company in Ashley Village Hall.
For those who have not been to such an event before, the actors play their parts for the evening with a mixture of scenes and are questioned by the audience at their tables. We are limiting the audience to 60 maximum in tables of 6 or 8 and the winning table that guess the murderer and the reason why they did it will win prizes. If you don’t have a table please come along anyway and join others.
The cost is £20 per head for a 4 course meal including tea or coffee – and the bar will be open for the evening. Please book now through Kirstie Mitchell or Peter Oppenheimer. See newsletter for email addresses.
