This is a classic Spice weekend away for any budding Agatha Christie or Hercule Poirot’s amongst us.  Our plot will have you guessing and working with your team to find out who dunnit!  If you have joined us on one of these weekends before we have another BRAND NEW excellent plot!


An Operation...To Die For

Set in a hospital in the 1960s with a cast of sexy nurses, dashing doctors, hunky porters, cantankerous cleaners and eccentric hospital volunteers this plot is sure to have you in stitches!!


The Plot

When 25 year old glamour model, Delores Dream, fails to wake after her supposedly successful operation, suspicions are raised.  A private room paid for by her sugar daddy, Ronald Flush, should’ve ensured her safety, but no such luck.  Did someone sneak in?  Was the operation sabotaged?  Who could do such a thing?  All are gathered for interrogation by Inspector Tendall: doctors, nurses, porters, cleaners, volunteers, even the surgeon.  It soon becomes clear that dear Delores has secrets from her past and it seems they have caught up with her!


Agenda for the Weekend: We meet on Friday night in the Bar from 7pm, with a 3 course dinner served from 8pm. You’ll meet your team but don’t get too friendly with your team mates – one of them is a murderer!  The serious business starts on Saturday morning, after breakfast, when you discover that a gruesome murder has taken place!


On the Saturday morning once everyone has introduced themselves in character and given their alibis for the time of the murder (Act 1) we will car-share to travel 5 miles to the pretty stone village of Badby.   We’ll park at The Windmill Inn and then go on a circular 2 mile countryside clue hunt which takes by the River Nene and the ancient woodland of Badby Wood.  Along the way we will be deciphering cryptic clues and using map co-ordinates to search for evidence in the countryside (Act 2).  Once all evidence is gathered we will reconvene at the beautiful, thatched Windmill Inn to enjoy a delicious buffet and to peruse the clues.

Saturday afternoon is yours.  You can return to base and enjoy the spa facilities of the 4 star Mercure Spa Hotel: you may want to have swim in their pool or book a luxury treatment.  Alternatively, you may choose to visit nearby Silverstone, Althorp House, Canons Ashby or some retail therapy may be in order.  Saturday evening we’ll all gather together again for Act 3:  Suspect interrogation!  Then we’ll break for an evening meal which will be followed by a Murder Mystery Themed Pub Quiz.  On Sunday morning Act 4 will produce some more surprises and we’ll separate into teams to workout ‘Whodunnit’.  The winning team will be rewarded - as will the ‘Best Dressed Guest’ and ‘Best Actor’.  It should be a lot of fun with a variety of activities to get your little grey cells working.


Hotel Accommodation:  the Daventry Court Hotel and Spa hotel is a stylish and modern 4 star hotel located in a Saxon market town, nestled within lovely grounds with a delightful inner courtyard.  The spacious en-suite bedrooms are well equipped for all your needs including free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. The on-site bars and restaurants offer excellent locally sourced food and a range of beers, wines and spirits.  The hotel’s health, fitness and beauty facilities include swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and fully equipped gym.  There is free parking on site.   The hotel is located just off the M1 Junction 18 North and Junction 16 South so easily accessible by car and the train station is only 6 miles away.

As the weekend approaches we will be in touch with everyone as we need you to play a character over the weekend.  Everyone is in a team, which will be allocated to you and within the team everyone is playing a character.  No acting is required unless you want to as you are given a booklet which gives you all the information about your character.  You can bring props/costumes to enhance your character and add to the fun (optional).  All the teams have the same characters so if you want to be in a team with your friends then you would all need to play different characters.   This is a fantastic weekend, full of surprises - good fun, great entertainment, wonderful company and super food!


A deposit will secure your place and the balance is due by 1st July and there can be no refunds after this date unless we can re-sell your place.
