The Murder Express -  Criminals at the Carnival


We invite you to enter the world of the mystery. The year is 1891 and The Borlotti Brothers' Carnival is on tour across Europe. Their next stop is the small town of Oakfield. It has been 20 years since the carnival last came to town but many Oakfield inhabitants still remember the chaos from last time… It's not just the fortune teller who predicts tragedy this time; the whole carnival is plagued by mystery – missing jewels, mistaken identity and a brutal killing.

This fully immersive experience will have you interrogating key suspects in a bid to uncover the truth and investigating key locations along the route. We welcome you on board the Duchess of Difflin steam train to journey through the story of The Borlotti Brothers' Carnival. Their next stop is the small town of Oakfield.
Enjoy a theatrical dining experience with drinks and canapes throughout the show, an hour of immersive theatre and train ride followed by a delicious banquet with wine and full bar and music in Buffers.

There are three performances on the evening of Saturday 30th of September – 18.15, 18.45 and 19.15 and Buffers will remain open until midnight on both nights.
Please note, the carriage has shared compartmental seating. It is important to be aware that theatre and live performance is a key part of this show, we request that all guests adhere to theatre etiquette to ensure a quality experience is had by all.
Early booking is advised due to very limited availability.
Further information will be sent to you ahead of the event so you can come prepared to crack the case!
