September

Saturday 12th September- Agatha Christie Festival Event

OVERBOARD MYSTERY – SPECIAL EVENT
It’s the 1920s and, after a celebratory evening on board a luxury yacht, the body of millionaire businessman, Sir Michael Spencer, is found washed ashore on Oddicombe Beach.
Tragic accident or something more sinister?
The suspects are brought ashore, the pathologist is called in and we need your help.
Join us on Saturday 12 September and help solve the mystery by questioning the suspects.
Leave no stone unturned to ensure that any foul play is uncovered.
Oh, and there’s superb live jazz music from High Society all afternoon as well. That may seem a bit disrespectful in the circumstances but we think it’s what Sir Michael would have wanted.
Fantastic family fun for the fourth year running.
From midday to 4pm.
Free to take part (normal Cliff Railway travel costs apply).
