About Much Ado About Murder

Wander amongst the grottos, lawns and woodlands surrounding this stunning Jacobean manor house – the perfect setting for a murder mystery!

Don your detective cap and join in some superlative silliness to kick off the open-air season.

This original murder mystery will set five suspects under the spotlight, and will depend on the audience to find answers. Who was lurking in the corridor carrying a candlestick? When did the third gunshot go off?

Answers to these and other equally important questions will only be uncovered as we all make ‘Much Ado About Murder’.

With thanks to Wroxton Abbey – home to Wroxton College of Fairleigh Dickinson University.
