There’s murder afoot in Lincolnshire!
Murder mystery evenings have become very popular with people looking to experience the thrill of a murder investigation, without worrying about getting banged up!
Their origins date back to the 1800s when a notorious child murder case caught the imaginations of the press and the public. The first ‘murder mystery’ game was released in 1935 and over the next 20 years, the games increased in complexity.
During the 1950s a new type of murder game evolved where groups of people would adopt characters and play out the investigation as if it were real. Hotels and venues capitalised on this new entertainment and began hosting special Murder Mystery evenings for paying guests.
Nowadays, this style of murder game has become one of the most popular and our own Lincolnshire has a variety of venues throughout the county that offer murder mystery events.
Stoke Rochford Hall is a Grade 1 listed Victorian mansion located just outside of Grantham. The impressive building and landscaped grounds provide the perfect backdrop for a night of mystery and scandal.
The murder mystery evening planned for October 2015 will take you back to 1940 where espionage and intrigue were the norm and the threat of war loomed over all.
