Sudden Death at Thornbury Manor
The year is 1929 and at Thornbury Manor, home of the Maltravers family, all is not well. Lies, deceit, treachery and fraud are rife and soon a body will be found. A real treat for lovers of Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs and Agatha Christie mysteries

Jump forward to the present day to a TV programme based on the events of that fateful night in 1929. Watch the performance, receive copies of evidence gathered by the police all those years ago, question the suspects then decide who-dunnit and why. Will you reach the same conclusion as the police did in 1929, or do you think someone else was involved?

Spread over 4 days with clues to unravel, video footage to analyse, suspects to question and prizes to be won.

What our customers say about our online events:
It was a fabulous experience and immense fun! Highly recommendable!!
Engaging, witty and draws you in! Excellent and interactive production
Everyone involved made such a great effort. The challenge was fun and exciting and very much needed as a distraction in the current situation. Many thanks and congrats to the team for putting on a great experience.
This was a great self-paced mystery with an interesting story line. Complex enough to keep you thinking but not impossible to give us hope. It was entertaining to watch the characters live during the interrogation!
What a welcome addition to our long lockdown evenings. Thank you for getting our brains working and our suspicious minds racing.
great fun and linked us as a family over the miles having fun when we couldn't visit.

Q: Do I have to play at a particular time each day?

No, if you register to take part, you will receive an email each day containing new clues and video footage. You can choose to view and discuss the materials sent at anytime convenient to you.

As part of the production we will be hosting live suspect interrogation sessions (via Zoom video conferencing). We hope you will join us and ask your questions, however for anyone who is not able to attend, or would prefer not to, a video of the sessions will be made available afterwards, so you will not miss a thing. By taking part in the live interrogation session you are giving your agreement to being recorded and having the session placed as an unlisted youtube video for the period of one week.

Optional: Please also follow our facebook group

Prize: £50 Amazon voucher (winner to be chosen at random from all correct who-dunnit entries received)
