If you’ve ever fancied yourself as the next Poirot, Miss Marple or even Columbo then you should bring yourself down to Sussex Crimestoppers’ murder mystery event! The fundraising event will be held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on 19 November to raise vital funds for the crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers.
But this won't be your usual murder mystery evening, no siree. The charity is using the expertise of its co-patrons Dame Vera Lynn (who’s one of my personal favourites from years ago) and the best selling crime novelist Peter James.
The murder mystery evening’s going to be centred around a "cold case" of Superintendent Roy Grace, the top detective from the novels of Peter James. The murder took place during World War Two so co-patron Dame Vera Lynn will be there to make sure everything is as authentic to the era as possible.
Guests can come in black tie/smart dress or they can really get into the spirit of things by dressing up in 1930/40's style dress, with a prize for the best outfits!
Tickets are £65 per person or £60 per person for a table of 10.
Dinner will include a three course "themed" menu (including a vegetarian option) and one bottle of house red and white wine per table plus coffee and mints. For those who want to dance the night away after all that detective work the ticket also includes entry to the Honey Club on Brighton seafront.
