Grosvenor Museum Halloween murder mystery drama created by Youth Panel
20 October 2017A fiendish murder will take place in the Grosvenor Museum’s Period House on Halloween (Tuesday 31 October), in a drama written and acted by the Museum’s Youth Panel.
The Victorian themed who-dunnit involves a well-to-do family and their guests and will rely on audience members to help the murder investigation and solve the crime.
Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Communities and Wellbeing said: “This is the fourth year that the Youth Panel has created a spooky Halloween event at the museum. This murder mystery makes the most of the evocative Victorian entrance hall in the Museum’s Period House, a three-hundred year old building which contains room sets from different eras.”
The Youth Panel is a group of 13-18 year olds who work with museum staff members on different projects around the museum, including events planning and exhibition development.
Audience members will be assigned a character each when they arrive and will make their own simple prop for the show. There will also be light refreshments available between the shows.
The event is free, no booking required, with a suggested donation of £1.50. The evening runs from 6.15pm to 9.15pm with performances at 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm (times subject to change depending on audience numbers). Performances last about 20 minutes.
