It is 1843 and Mr Fezziwig is holding his annual Christmas Party in the splendour of a candlelit Newhaven Fort. Jacob Marley is guest of honour for the evening but as other Dickensian characters arrive Mr Marley goes missing - who might be responsible for his disappearance. Was it the deplorable Daniel Quilp, the hard working Kate Nickleby, the mysterious Jack Dawkins, the caring Amy Dorrit, the cold Estella Havisham, or the mean Ebenezer Scrooge. What has happened, will your fellow revellers hold the clues to his disappearance?
During the evening the host goes missing... where is he? What happened? You and your fellow guests will need to explore by the Fort by torchlight to find your host and ensure that no one else is lurking in the dark recesses of this impressive location. By carefully putting together the clues left by your host will you be able to establish not only the murderer, the weapon but the room in which it occurred.
Interrogate the characters, work together to identify the murderer and decide the motive and method of the crime. Then when coffee is served you can reach your conclusions and all will be revealed.
The party lasts approximately 2.5 hours and involves interaction with actors and Victorian Parlour Games - offering a unique perspective to the Fort at night in the magical setting.
Included in your package is; An intriguing murder mystery with plenty of games and sleuthing Tea & coffee at end of your evening
