Event description

Set in the bustling touristic scene of Torquay, you find yourselves trapped in a ho-ho-homicide of…. Santa!

Mrs. Bookin, who retains a small staff, welcomes local residents for a traditional Christmas meal but at the start of the festivities, something unimaginable occurs, the man playing Santa is found dead in his room.
Could it be food poisoning? You suspect that it’s a murder and start investigating right away.

Five suspects, played by professional actors, are brought to you. Do you have the problem-solving skills needed to find out who among these five could have committed such an atrocious crime? Examine clues, decipher riddles and interrogate suspects to find out whodunit.

A detective, played by an actor, will lead your group and help you in case you are stuck. At the end of the activity, all teams will announce their suspicions and our detective will announce which one of you was right and why!

Enjoy some Christmas-themed teamwork this season and claim victory as you find out who committed the murder!
