We perform regularly at the Pemberton Centre in the town, with a pantomime every January, and most summers we perform a play, which is usually a comedy.

Would you like a go at solving a murder? Do you think you can work out who dunnit? Well now you can!

Something is going on at the Hall and it's up to you to work out what, who, where and how!

Something's annoying Squire Gotobed, he's not keen on the lad his daughter Amelia is seeing. His son, Tom, is of a similar opinion while his wife, Ellen, has other things on her mind. The fiercely loyal Blenkinsop will do anything to protect the family he works for, including helping the maid, Rose, to learn to read and write so that she can serve the familiy better. Then there's Green, the gamekeeper. He's always grumpy and short with everyone, and he's the one that always has a gun. What could possibly go wrong?

A rioutous evening's entertainment is on the cards, and included in the price of the ticket is a Fish and Chip supper! (You'll need to prebook though, tickets won't be on sale on the door because the food needs to be pre-ordered)
