Murder Mystery Train

13th & 27th June

Join us this summer for our infamous Murder Mystery trains. Let the longest established murder mystery company in the West of England, Murder by Appointment, transport you back to the 1930’s – The Vanishing Lady” Murder Mystery Evening.

The disappearance of one of the passengers during the journey sparks interest and concern among the others. They must find the missing lady. But why? Who are they? And who exactly, do they represent?

Watch as the story unfolds, listen out for clues, get those grey cells working, and question the cast if you wish to try and piece together the puzzle.

If you can solve the mystery, your name will be put into a draw and you may be lucky enough to go home with the winning prize.

Arrive at Bodmin General (PL31 1AG) at 6:30pm for a 7pm start, finishing at approximately 10:00pm. Your ticket includes a Cornish pasty and a drink on arrival. All tickets must be booked in advance, and remember to choose your pasty option when paying for them.

Please be aware that single tickets or couples may be seated with other couples.
