MURDER MYSTERY WALKS BY THE CORFE CASTLE RUINS
Yes, they’re back! And even better! The highly acclaimed Double Act Murder Mystery Walks return this summer!
Times and dates – 7pm on Wed July 19th & 26th and August 2nd, 9th & 16th 2023.
Tickets will be just £5 a head (under 5’s free).
The starting point is in the North Castle Field, opposite the Castle View National Trust car park, just north of the Corfe Castle ruins on the A351.
What could be more atmospheric for a murder mystery than a twilight walk in the shadow of the ruins of the great castle?
However, the walk will involve steep rough paths and long grass and although we will finish before dark for safety reasons, anyone taking part does so at their own risk.
Due to the popularity of the past walks and a necessity to restrict numbers for safety it is strongly recommended that early bookings be made. Watch for an announcement on how and where to acquire tickets plus further production information.
The year is 1330…… and a young Edward III rules England but under the ‘protection’ of his mother, Isabella and her lover Mortimer. His father, Edward II was unpopular. After an uprising led by his estranged wife, he had been deposed from the throne and kept imprisoned at various castles before apparently being murdered in an extremely unpleasant way at Berkley Castle. But then a rumour started that the old king was still held prisoner at Corfe Castle!
His brother Edmund dispatched a Friar to Corfe to investigate!
What did he find out?
Was it all political subterfuge? Was Edward II still alive or was it his ghost?
