Murder Mystery Night at Ormesby Hall

On 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝟴 𝗗𝗲𝗰𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿, in partnership with Tall Tales Mysteries, we will host 'Murder At The Panto' with a cast of traditional panto characters who are about to discover a murder at Ormesby Hall.

  • Booking essential

Darlington Entertainers And Theatrical Society are about to premiere their very first murder mystery, but the cast are all dressed for a panto and they’ve all learned the wrong script and when a body in the wings is discovered the farce begins.

You’ll join us in the marquee in the grounds of Ormesby Hall where everyone will discover just how badly wrong this panto is about to go. The cast have all got the wrong costumes and everyone has learned the wrong lines!

Then you’ll be taken in your teams around the mansion where you’ll meet the cast, learn more about their troubles and see short scenes in some of the rooms beautifully lit and decorated in panto-theme.

This is a festive murder mystery not to be missed and perfect for your Christmas party, with tickets including a 2-course meal.

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