Issue: July at  18 July 2013


LIVERPOOL'S Lovehistory and St George's Hall are delighted to announce what is possibly the biggest murder mystery event in the UK (and most definitely to have been seen in Liverpool)! With 250 guests and taking place in the magnificent and atmospheric surroundings of the Great Hall itself, rather aptly on Friday, 13 September 2013, the stories featured at the event will be based on criminals trialled at the Hall's famous courts. Guests will be treated to a 3 course meal whilst they bear witness to Liverpool's most notorious murders of the Victorian era.   Murder at St George's Hall will feature a team of 12 professional actors representing characters from real life Liverpool murder cases, who will do their best to misguide, deceive and obscure the truth. Guests will question and interrogate each character and eventually name the perpetrator. This is a truly bespoke event and as the drama unfolds so too does the history of this magnificent building.

Alan Smith, Manager at St George's Hall said:- "The magnificent setting of the Great Hall in St George's Hall will at last unveil all its history through this Murder Mystery event. In the shadow of the City's illustrious greats the Hall's historical past will be revealed and interpreted in a completely new and dynamic way. Charles Dickens would be delighted!"

Lovehistory's Judy McLean said:- "St George's Hall will witness the return of some of Liverpool's most notorious murderers; Florence Maybrick, the Southern Belle who poisoned her merchant husband, Elizabeth Berry, the infamous child killer, John McCrave, convicted of the brutal murder of Richard Morgan, The Black Widows of Liverpool, who poisoned for profit...and a number of other uninvited 'guests'. One of these departed souls has returned to commit murder...again! As the drama unfolds and the plot thickens, guests will dine in the splendour of the grand hall and will be asked to assist in a murder investigation that will reveal Liverpool's dark and disturbing history!"

Those taking part will need to use their powers of deduction to piece together the crime and to pass sentence. They will meet both the accused, who will protest their innocence, and also the victims who will reveal the details of their murder. Guests can send the accused to the gallows or grant a reprieve. The decision will be in their hands and for one night the public will be both judge and jury in this magnificent setting!

In true "whodunit" style, each section of the grand hall will be named after a much loved fictional detective; Sherlock Holmes, Inspector Morse, Phillip Marlow, Columbo, Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot etc. During the course of the evening, guests will be given clues and are urged to keep their wits about them as this will be an evening filled with deception, intrigue and…murder most foul.

Lovehistory will ensure that this event is a masterpiece in terms of Murder Mystery evenings and as the guests enjoy the finery, the food and drink, the culprits will be at play. All content will be appropriate and drawn from historical documentation. The evening will run from 7pm until 10.30pm, with an optional later bar available. There will be a prize available and costumes are encouraged. Tickets (including 3 course meal) are priced at £38.00 per person (no booking fee) and are available through TicketQuarter.  Experience Liverpool's murderous past with this truly interactive evening!
