Murder, mystery and more at The Angel, Chippenham

Lord Crump has died, and his family gather to find out what is in his will. It is fair to say that everyone is more interested in the money than sad about his death. His son will inherit his title, but he has gambling debts and needs hard cash. His brother has a chip on his shoulder and his wife hides bottles of spirits around the house to feed her addiction. His maid is also in attendance, hoping for a legacy. What happens next? MURDER!

If you dare, join The Angel Hotel, Chippenham, on Friday 15 June. Guests are invited to step in to the 1920s with a jazz-era themed murder mystery dinner event. Based on The Reading of The Will, suspects will explore the suspicious circumstances of Lord Crump’s death when the whole household gets involved.

The historic background of the 18th century coaching inn will immediately transport guests to the golden era of yesteryear, setting the scene for the evening’s show. With actors and hotel staff on hand throughout, the evening is sure to be one of entertainment and enjoyment.

A three-course meal will accompany the drama with guests able to choose from a selection of delicious dishes to enjoy during breaks in the action. The braised feather blade of beef with mash and crispy cabbage is certainly one not to miss.

Guests are invited to the three-course meal and show for just £40 per person. Or, to make a break of it, an overnight package is also available for the event including breakfast the next morning and access to the onsite leisure facilities for just £80 per person (based on two sharing a twin or double room).
