AN EVENING of murder and mystery is being served up in Fordingbridge.

The murder mystery event hosted by Fordingbridge Twinning Association returns on February 3 and takes place at St Mary’s Church Hall at 7.30pm.

This year the evening is entitled The Monte Carlo Murders.

Set in 1951 and the body of a woman has been found on a private beach in Monte Carlo. The beach can only be reached through the palace of Prince Reynard, so when the police conclude that there has been foul play, suspicion is bound to fall on the Prince and at least one of his glamorous house guests: Princess Peacock, Alfred Higginbottom, Cassandra, Amy Jackson, Colonel Jock Strapp, Lord Lummy, and Bobbie Driver.

Those attending are invited to dress for the occasion.

Tickets are priced at £15 per person, to include a hot home-made meal. They are available from Caxton’s and Jessica’s in Fordingbridge, High Street.
