The Ropemaker Theatre Company has announced its next Murder Mystery Evening, which takes place on Friday, September 13, as part of the Hailsham Festival of Arts & Culture.

Once again the Murder Mystery will be held at Callenders Restaurant, 80-82 High Street, Hailsham.

Firm Foundations is written by actress and singer Linda Francis, who is also the co-director of the Ropemaker Theatre Company, founded by John Wilders.

The theatre company’s debut murder mystery, Murder Most Fun, was a huge success last April, where diners at Callenders Restaurant joined in the whodunit fun.

Firm Foundations is set in a lingerie factory and apart from the script offering vital clues and red herrings (naturally), it is written with an extremely humorous edge.

Included in the price of £35 per head is a full three course meal plus coffee.

Doors open at 7pm for 7.30pm start.

Guests are advised to book early to join in solving the murder or actually taking part in it. There is a prize for the winning team.

Bookings are now being taken by Callenders Restaurant on 01323 842400.
