Murder and mystery evening at Tyntesfield
By Carol_Deacon | Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 10:28
Tyntesfied will host an evening of drama and suspense as the gothic house is converted into a gruesome murder scene for one night only.
Visitors are invited to travel back in time to the Victorian era to solve a murder most foul at National Trust property Tyntesfield in North Somerset.
In association with the critically acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company, participants will have the opportunity to explore the 19th century house and question suspects as they seek to lay false trails and hide the truth from the crime fighters.
The evening will also consist of time to relax and enjoy a hot buffet style meal at the Home Farm Visitor Centre on the Tyntesfield Estate.
Events officer Hugh Harris said: "Tyntesfield is a glorious gothic venue and perfect for a Victorian murder mystery evening.
"I am looking forward to popping my deerstalker on and grabbing my magnifying glass to become Sherlock Holmes in the 21st century."
Tickets are £35 per person and include a hot meal.
Booking is essential via the website www.nationaltrust.org.uk/tyntesfield or 0844 249 1895.
Victorian style clothing is encouraged.
Tyntesfield is a Victorian country house created by one of England's richest commoners, William Gibbs, who built his fortune on fertiliser.
Spiralling turrets and pinnacles adorn the roof, ornate stone carvings and church-like windows complete the Gothic look, giving the feel of a mysterious, fairytale mansion. Terraced lawns give way to spacious parkland scattered with hundreds of trees collected by the family, and a walled kitchen garden beyond.
The Tyntesfield estate was saved for the nation by the National Trust in 2002 and is open every day except December 25.
Home Farm Visitor Centre includes a shop, Cow Barn Kitchen, second hand bookshop and interactive wildlife hub. All are open from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
