Murder Mystery: Hollywood Lies

£8.00 Through this website only. Inclusive of a buffet.

Solve the mystery of who killed Hollywood Star, Tom Speed, in this unique Playhouse Event to raise money for our Refurbishment Fund. This Black Tie Evening Event has a maximum cast of 32 tickets (Children welcome, aged 12+). Come along and help discover the identity of the murderer! Buffet will be provided.

"It’s Award Night and Tom Speed’s latest film, Dazzled to Death, has just swept the board and garnered four Erics for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Screenplay. Sadly, Tom Speed’s award for Best Actor was accepted posthumously by his friend, Hayden Vicars, as Tom was killed in a driving accident late last night.

Despite this note of sadness, celebrations are in full swing at the Dazzled to Death post-award party. Deals are being cut for future productions and everyone is having a good time enjoying the atmosphere and mingling with Hollywood’s movers and shakers.

Is there anything suspicious about Tom Speed’s death? Who will win next year’s Erics? Find out at Hollywood Lies."
