Halloween Murder Mystery Train

24th October, from 6:30pm, train departs at 7pm.


Solve a murder mystery whilst enjoying a steam train journey through the beautiful Cornish countryside, as Bodmin Railway and Murder by Appointment present –

‘The Barrister’

Whilst gathered at a Rotarian fund-raising evening, a well-known and respected Barrister is suddenly confronted with threats and allegations concerning his practice. The Barrister finds himself trying to defend not only the actions of his Chambers, but those of his wife. Intrigue and jealousy are interwoven in this thrilling story, which results in the discovery of a body...

Are you a Miss Marple, Poirot, Morse, or maybe even a Jessica Fletcher? Watch and listen for clues, question the suspects, and determine the killer – but watch out for those red herrings! If you can spot the clues and catch the killer, you could win yourself a bottle of wine.

Tickets include your steam train journey, murder mystery entertainment and a Cornish Pasty supper served at your seat.
A bar offering a selection of wines and spirits, locally brewed beers, soft drinks and snacks, is available on board the train.
However you rate your crime-busting ability, we can assure you of a most enjoyable evening with a production that will have your ‘little grey cells’ working overtime.

These events are usually very popular, so we advise you to get your tickets early, then climb aboard, sit back and enjoy the mystery, intrigue and fun of the evening. Telephone 01208 73555 to book.
