This week we give thanks to the team for being able to have fun together. On Saturday night we decided to have a murder mystery dinner.
Character cards were handed out on the Tuesday and there was much secretive journeying to the costume room to select a suitable outfit for the evening.
The scene was set when we were told that we were travelling on the Orient Express from Paris to Istanbul!
There was a princess (Craig) and her maid (Nessy), an English general (Jose), a rich widow (Cal), an eccentric scientist (Gunny), a wealthy American businessman (Tony H) and a gambler (Gav), as well as the train conductor (Chris) and porter (Janelle) at the dinner table. We enjoyed crispy pork belly and racks of lamb with veggies; the Pimms and sparkling was flowing and it was a great dinner, then we all retired upstairs and unfortunately Gunny the scientist was MURDERED!
Now we had to identify the killer and the four undercover agents from various world security services…
It was a fun night ending in multiple games of increasingly complex Jenga at the bar.
