About

In collaboration with Game Soc, join us for our Murder Mystery Social! Over the course of the night you will play the role of assigned characters seeking to solve the murder mystery, all while pursuing your own objectives and possessing unique knowlege to everyone else. You must get a free ticket by midnight on 23/05/24 for this event so that roles can be assigned in advance, and fancy dress is recommended but not required. We can't wait to see you all there! George Sweet, the 5th Earl of Coddingham, has led a wicked life. Eager to keep out of reach of the law, he is planning to flee abroad. Before he goes, he holds one final party: “The Last Gasp”. Invited to it are all the people to whom his appalling behaviour has brought the most grief and heartache: his ex-wives, Florence and Dawn, his present wife, Jojo, his ballet dancer son, William, and his long-suffering friend, Bernard. George is determined to use his party to make up for past mistakes. People from the Earl’s local village and members of his staff are also at “The Last Gasp”. The local vicar is recruiting new members for the church choir. Cavalry officer Captain Ratliffe is breaking a few more women’s hearts. Jarvis, the Earl’s loyal butler, is making sure no one steals the sherry. The Earl’s plans go slightly awry, however, when the police unexpectedly turn up, hoping to arrest someone for murder. Who do they want to arrest? The Earl of Coddingham....
