Murder Mystery at Bruisyard Hall


A conundrum, a thriller, a riddle – and you're stuck in the middle… what better setting to disentangle a murder mystery than in a house more than 600 years old, on a dark night in remotest Suffolk… You can only trust yourself. Or can you? 

Get wrapped up in the drama of a brilliantly themed Victorian Séance or a Murder on the Dance Floor Murder Mystery dinner at Bruisyard Hall. 

With professional actors, lots of guest participation and fancy dress (at your own risk), we bring the theatre (and the comedy) to the hallow floors of Bruisyard Hall. Between scenes enjoy a wonderful three course meal for 24 people, served by our amazing team – who you definitely can trust…
