The Bridge Hotel in Wetherby was the setting of Diane’s mysterious evening…

“There’s been a murder!”  No, these are not normally words that would be conducive to a fun night out!  But in this case they elicited screams of excitement and a rush of people to ‘view the body’.  The ‘body’ was lying awkwardly on the floor with a large knife protruding from between the shoulder blades and a large red ‘blood’ stain over the ‘victim’s’ shirt!

Whodunnit?

Let me shed some light on things.  For this was of course not a real murder, but a carefully crafted and staged one, as part of a Murder Mystery night at The Bridge Hotel in Wetherby.

My husband I and were there with another couple and had hired the services of a local baby sitter we know, to look after 3 children in our room, so we could have a rare and eagerly anticipated night out.

When we arrived at our table I could see we were in for a fun night, as we all introduced ourselves. There were 2 guys who had received the night as a present and a couple of local ladies who were Murder Mystery break veterans.

Actors and actresses acted out an intriguing and ever twisting plot, between courses of our delicious 3 course meal.  Plus there was plenty of audience participation to get everyone involved.

There was also a spare seat on each table where the actors would take turns at sitting with us, so they could be ‘interrogated’.

I have to say, my cheeks were sore from laughing by the end of the night, as we retreated to the bar for a nightcap with our new friends.

Did we guess the murderer?  Unfortunately no.  But by that time it didn’t really matter.

So ‘who done it’?  Now that I can’t reveal.  But what I can is that I will certainly be back for another one!
