Whether you are a first-class detective or first-time crime solver, you are guaranteed an unforgettable night of fun, frivolities and fatalities! Join us for this brand new, fun, highly interactive murder mystery night featuring a range of eccentric characters who are likely to be the most suspicious suspects you’ll ever meet!

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”

Acknowledging Jane Austen as one of mankind’s most gifted writers on the subject of love and the human condition, tech developers have created the ‘Austen Algorithm’ – the key to finding the perfect partner! The new app Dating Mr Darcy is due to be launched at an Austen themed gala celebration… But moments before the app goes live, its creator is found dead – Someone has quite literally broken her heart!

But which of the Austen aficionados is a potential killer? What clues to the crime can be found within the works of the author, and just who will end up dating Mr Darcy?

Interrogate the suspects, crack the codes and discover the wit and wisdom of one of the finest writers to put pen to paper in an Austen related murder mystery that will require all your sense and sensibilities to solve!

Café @ The Word will be open during this event to purchase both alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.
