Imagine being invited to a mysterious Country Estate by an enigmatic host… with a room of curious guests your host never appears… the clock is ticking, and you must work as a team to investigate what happened. Well, that is exactly what will happen when you join Torchlight Mysteries for a truly immersive Murder Mystery at Stansted House.
As you make your way up the steps of the great House you will be emerged into Downton-Abbey-like world of servants bustling downstairs, while landed gentry dine in style upstairs. But behind all the facades are dark secrets and everyone is not quite as they appear. You will be tasked to interrogate the suspects in the magnificent setting of Stansted House and find out which of the guests, or servants, could be capable of murder.
Arrive in your finest for the 1930s cocktail soiree, with bubbles and canapes... but someone will not make it to a second round of drinks. As the sound of Jazz fills the air you realise your host has disappeared and you will have one hour to find out what happened before the police turn up. Will you be able to solve this baffling case in time? Worst still will the champagne run out?
Use your best sleuthing skills to piece together the trail of clues as you make your way around the House, and after you have interrogated the suspects, you must reach your conclusion as tea and coffee are served.
On arrival the staff will welcome you with a glass of something bubbly and canapes as you have your first glimpse of the suspects. When the host does not appear you will have one hour to speak to the suspects - explore the house and see if you can work out what happened to the host. Then with everyone assembled in the Servants Hall you will then have a chance to voice your theories. A unique way to explore the house by torchlight and a great family escape room puzzle on the scale of a Country House. Toilets are available during the event. You will be moving between floors during the event but lifts are available.
