Murder at Torquay Museum!


For fans of interactive murder mysteries, Torquay Museum is for the first time ever opening its doors to provide a most unusual venue for a grisly crime on Friday 5th June, from 7–10pm.

The Dig is a murder mystery set in the world of archaeologists unearthing treasures of Ancient Egypt – set in the Museum’s own Egyptology Gallery, which is home to Devon’s only boy mummy and a host of Ancient Egyptian artefacts dating back as far as 5,000 years ago.

The Dig will feature the cast from Torquay-based Candlelight Theatre Company, which is the leading murder mystery company in the South-West, with over twenty years’ experience.

“Torquay Museum is famous across the globe as the home of the world’s only permanent Agatha Christie gallery,” said the Museum’s Carl Smith. “It features a wealth of facts, photographs and artefacts about Agatha Christie’s life and work, including the furniture and props featured in ITV’s adaptations of Christie’s Poirot starring David Suchet. So what better place to have a murder mystery?”

Tickets for The Dig murder mystery at Torquay Museum on Friday 5th June, from 7–10pm, are £37, including dinner. Booking in advance is essential as places are limited, so contact Torquay Museum on 01803 293975 to reserve your place.
