Murder on the Thames
Sherlock Holmes is coming aboard, which can mean only one thing, the game is afloat. The Windsor & Maidenhead Boat Company are teaming up with the Sherlock Holmes Society and the great detective to bring you a wonderful interactive three-hour murder mystery experience. Also, you may win a prize for guessing who committed the murder.
On arrival, you will be greeted on board by Mr Holmes. A mixer quiz will start things off, and guests invited to volunteer and take on the suspects’ roles. Suitable props and clothes are there for those taking part; however, guests are most welcome to come in costume if they prefer.
Then just before lunch, approximately half an hour after departure, a murder will take place, and the investigation will begin. The acts continue during the main course, and more importantly, the crucial clues disclosed.
Furthermore, after the main course, you may search for physical evidence hidden around the boat. Following this, you will get your ‘just desserts’ as the final scenes commence over dessert.
In conclusion, enjoy a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee, as the denouncement, prize-giving, and revealing of the murderer.
Sample Murder Menu
