A few weeks ago Diane Spence, Superbreak’s Conversion Manager, spent a spine-tingling evening at The Bridge Hotel in Wetherby. Find out what she thought of her mysterious night out…
“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!
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!
