Death at Fawlty Towers – Murder Mystery Event
Sybil Strikes Back!
It is the night of Basil & Sybil’s 15th wedding anniversary and you have all been invited to the surprise party organised (in secret!) by Basil. All seems to be going to plan - Manuel is waiting on the tables – Terry, the new chef, is busy preparing the food, and entertainment has been arranged for the party of German guests staying at the hotel.
But things start to go wrong when Polly is late from her evening class, the new chef is found drunk and Sybil is convinced that Basil has forgotten all about the anniversary!
Suddenly, a death occurs – and, with murder suspected, everyone finds themselves under suspicion.
The question is - who did it and why?
Find out all this and more in our fun filled ‘Fawlty Towers’ themed murder mystery evening!
