Cricklade Twinning  February 2018 Newsletter

Murder Mystery Evening – 7.30pm Saturday 24th March – Town Hall

A big success last year, book now to secure your tickets. Why not have some fun and bring friends and make up a table.

To remind you of how it works. Our troop of actors act out a mystery, you must play detective along with your table and solve clues as the evening progresses.

Supper will be served midway through the evening – ham and cheese Ploughman’s with a veggie alternative for vegetarians. Please bring your own drinks and glasses.

The venue will be Cricklade Town Hall, the tickets are £10.00.

Tickets available from Jane Whinfrey: email or call Jane on (01793)750048.

We would be delighted with any provided raffle prizes.
