MURDER MYSTERY DINNER THEATRE: "THE POKEINGHAM MURDERS"
“The Pokeingham Murders”
It is 1939 and the English Cotswold beauty spot Pokeingham-Softly-on-the-Wold is mourning the death of elderly heiress Rose Stimper, who had made the quiet village her home for almost seventy years. Miss Stimper, in an act of philanthropy, has bequeathed the Village a large sum of money and left instructions that the villagers must decide how best to spend it.
A public meeting has been arranged and the village is buzzing with excitement. Everyone seems to have ideas on how to spend the money and the entire village turns out to attend the meeting at Pokeingham Hall, which has been thrown open for the first time in many years to host the event.
Lord and Lady Pokeingham are all set to welcome you into their home, but beware. All is not as it seems. There are dark forces at work in Pokeingham-Softly-on-the-Wold…
