Murder on the Terrace

Thursday 11 August, 7.00pm. Gates open at 6.00pm. Suitable for those aged 8+ years.

The scene is set – a respectable garden party to celebrate Lord Cava’s retirement and the handing over of his sparkling wine empire to his nephew, Charles Standen-Delliver. It is no secret that Charles intends to shut down the business and convert Lord Cava’s Manor (The Cavary) into a conference centre.

Unsurprisingly, Charles is later found dead, poisoned, clutching Percival – Lord Cava’s beloved pet parrot. The garden party is thrown into disarray, the sardonic Inspector Back arrives to investigate and the twists and turns of a whodunit both puzzle and entertain alongside dangerous amounts of humour. Can you solve the mystery?

Ticket prices: £12 for adults, £8 for children, or £35 for 2 adults and 2 children.

***SOLD OUT***

28 September 2016. Suitable for those aged 7+ years. Gates open at 6.00pm. Performance starts at 6.30pm and finishes at approx. 8.30pm.

Come and join the grand opening party of “Armitage’s Ices”, the ice cream parlour set up by 12-year-old Zoe and her Dad, and follow Zoe’s journey as she takes on the revolting characters that have proved to be one of the hallmarks of David Walliams’ appeal.

Our heroine has a profound love of animals and a dream of travelling the world that keep her going as she copes with her disgusting neighbours, her recently unemployed dad, and the menacing Burt (of Burt’s Burgers) who is after Zoe and her pet rat!

Voted the top children’s book of the year in 2012, David Walliams’ Ratburger encourages us to support Zoe as she battles through life.

Ticket prices: £12 for adults, £8 for children, or £35 for 2 adults and 2 children. Pre-booking is essential.
