Murder Mystery Night at Ormesby Hall – Murder is Frightful

On Saturday 5 October, in partnership with Tall Tales Mysteries, Ormesby Hall plays host to 'Murder is Frightful'.

  • Booking essential

You are invited to spend the night in a haunted house…if you dare. Wealthy recluse Madden Batty was found dead on the doorstep of her home, Haunts Hill House. Your invitation offers you a chance to share in her inheritance but not everything is as it seems, and you’ll soon be investigating a murder.

You’ll join Tall Tales Mysteries in the marquee in the grounds of Ormesby Hall. Then you’ll be taken in your teams around the mansion, as you become detectives to help solve the murder!

This is a night out not to be missed and perfect to enjoy with family and friends, with tickets including a 2-course meal.

The evening begins with a 7pm arrival for a 7.30pm start.

The ticket price includes the Tall Tales murder mystery, a 2-course meal from Barefoot Kitchen, tea and coffee. The main meal consists of hot spaghetti and meatballs (including vegan meatballs), garlic bread and chocolate apple for dessert. Everything on the menu is gluten free, except for the garlic bread. Please indicate at checkout if you require gluten free garlic bread. The meal is made in a kitchen that handles nuts, including peanuts, so the menu cannot be guaranteed to be nut free. Allergen information will be available at the event. Barefoot Kitchen is a farm to fork project for people, places and the planet. Their ingredients are sourced locally as possible supporting regenerative farmers, food producers and community growers, so you can be assured that your meal has trodden gently on the earth. There will be a pay for bar at the marquee, but please note drinks from the bar are not included in the ticket price. Only drinks purchased from the onsite bar can be consumed at the event.
