Please note this isn’t a murder mystery dinner, there isn’t a meal, but we can guarantee an evening of laughs, serious sleuthing, beautiful surroundings, and the satisfaction of supporting Birmingham Museums Trust, a registered charity which keeps incredible buildings like Aston Hall open and cared for.

Costume is not essential but we greatly encourage all of our visitors to dress in Victorian style to really bring the Hall alive, and allow everyone to step back in time to 1857. A simple Victorian style look can be captured without great expense.

This event takes place throughout the building, and some of the suspects and clues will be located on the upper floors of the building, which are accessed by stairs only. As the building has uneven floors we recommend comfortable footwear, and a warm layer as evenings can be cool and some of the event will take place outside. Stiletto heels are not permitted without heel covers.

This event is suitable for ages 10 and upwards. Children under 18 must be accompanied at all times.

Pre-booking is essential. Tickets are non-refundable.
