As we celebrate 950 years of Durham Castle, join us in the spectacular Great Hall at University College for an evening of dining, discussion and murder!

On Sunday December 11, 2022, we will be hosting Murder and Mulled Wine, a Murder Mystery Dinner in the Great Hall. The perfect opportunity for a Christmas party, gathering of friends or couples outing, be sure to secure your seats as soon as possible as spaces are limited. 

*****

Across a three-course meal a team from Tall Tales will immerse you in the plot - play along and solve the crime.

The Scene

You are invited to Lord Jolyon Jape's splendid Christmas party. The year is 1932 and this will be a night to remember. But there is an unexpected guest, a Bulgarian ballet dancer and a body in the library!

It's time to turn detective and solve the case of Murder & Mulled Wine...if you can.
