Summer Drinkgs at the Kent House Tavern

On Saturday 2nd January 2010 a number of residents starred in “Lady Bountiful’s Drawing Room Drama” Murder Mystery.

The event was well attended by about 100 residents and friends who tried to solve the mystery

The afternoon started with the projection of the video introductions to each character, followed by a live play in which – as expected! – a murder took place.

The inspector then proceeded to interrogate all the characters:

The audience was asked to guess the murderer by playing with the clues set out as a logic puzzle, while enjoying mulled wine, mince pies and cake slices:

The explanation – aided by a Powerpoint presentation – left many shocked faces, including the murderer and the entire cast! (the solution had been kept under wraps)

Congratulation to Ellie, Victor Road who was the only person that didn’t fall in the trap and correctly guessed the culprit!
She won a murder mystery game.

Many thanks to the wonderful and talented cast: Peter and Samira, Rita and James, Neil and Carrie, Anna and Joel (all from Albert Road); David from Victor Road and to two non-residents: Sharon from Parish Lane and David from… Cardiff!

A big thank you also to Adrian (organiser and props), Lynne (filming), Miranda (filming and editing), Jackie (refreshments), Martin (raffle), Franco (plot and play).

We are very grateful for the Grassroots and Capital Community Foundation Grants which subsidised the event.
