Murder Mystery Evenings at Lumley Castle

Can you solve the crime of the last century?

In 1903 a murder took place at Lumley Castle.  This villainous act was the result of a master criminal mind, however a mistake was made – a clue the police overlooked.

You are invited to attend a re-enactment of the murder, to see if you can play detective and solve this hideous crime.

Was it the ambitious land owner Jack Horner or cunning Lady Lily or the scheming Sir Ralph or perhaps the plotting maid Dinah?…

Can you guess whodunit and why?
