murder mystery at Colchester Castle


A murder mystery night, Roman style! Don your togas
(optional of course!) and get ready for a night of vitriol, vendettas, and vestal virgins, so get out the toga, polish up your sleuthing skills and come and join us!

The scene is set, Ancient Rome, 54AD, and the Emperor Claudius has issues. His third wife has been suspiciously quick to agree to a divorce, his mistress is a little too close to her ghastly son, his chief eunuch is behaving very strangely, and the Senate appear determined to thwart him at every turn … Thus begins a murderous comedy of politics, plumbing, and peanuts.

Brush off your detective
skills and join us for a unforgettable night in the atmopspheric setting of Europe's Largest Norman Keep!
