Cocktails and Crime: Season of Scandal

At National Justice Museum


Georgian Nottingham is a city of divides. The rich and powerful upper classes enjoy frivolous parties, while the city’s poor struggle to survive.

At the 1783 end of the season, summer’s eve ball tensions are running high. Well-to-do industrialists and their courtesans rub shoulders with scoundrels and conmen in the city’s Grand Shire Hall. The rich are raising funds for the County Gaol, where the impoverished and lawless live just a few floors below the festivities.

Drink is flowing. And soon blood will be spilt. The murderer lurks in the Shire Hall’s shadows.

Join the mayhem as a detective, and put your sleuthing skills to the test to uncover whodunnit?

Tickets £23.95 per person including:

  • Arrival cocktail or mocktail
  • Murder mystery event

Georgian fancy dress encouraged! Over 18s only. Sensible footwear and a jacket are advised.
