“One of us in this very room is in fact the murderer.” - Agatha Christie, And Then There Were None
The Murder Mystery Dinner is back with a killer script written by crime-writing expert Martin Edwards
and a three-course meal to keep your taste buds as entertained as your ‘little grey cells’.
Throughout the course of the evening, you and your table of fellow sleuths will hear the testimonies of the suspects in the murder of a reclusive author whose first Literature Festival appearance in 15 years has also been her grisly last. Struggling to decide whodunit? Our Festival crime authors will all be in attendance to assist anyone who doesn’t know their Agatha from their Edgar Allen Poe.
Martin Edwards is a crime novelist, author of ground-breaking genre study The Golden Age of Murder, vice chair of the Crime Writers’ Association and the eighth president of the Detection Club – the mystery writers’ club whose members included Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers and GK Chesterton.
