The Show Must Go On Murder Mystery

The mystery of the Big Top Circus will be revealed

The story of the Big Top Circus is filled with sadness and woe
What evil befell the circus with madness and foe?
Come one come all, to the Big Top Circus, where all shall fall and dreams will go.

A mysterious train pulls into town. Creatures of every kind, colour and size disembark and begin to put together their merry purpose. But disaster strikes, with many lives lost and no clear answers... Years later people are being sold tickets to this doomed bazaar. At midnight, the circus tent falls to the ground, in flames, and leaves the audience standing alone in the field.

On Friday, 27 October 2017, guests are cordially invited on a journey through time. What really happened at the Big Top Circus that night? Was it just a tragic accident, or were members of the circus troupe victims of one of the worst acts of sabotage imaginable? It’s time to don your detective hat because this case needs you!

Be Part of the Mystery hosts regular murder mystery dinner parties, using intriguing story lines to pull you in. Once you’ve cracked one case, you will always want to go back. This edition is being held at Knife Restaurant at Crystal Towers in Canal Walk. The event will push guests to use critical thinking to figure out who the guilty party is. While you’re solving the mystery, you’ll be served a delicious three course meal accompanied by plenty of wine.


Buffalo chicken wings and blue cheese sauce

Main Course
Knife’s smoked BBQ baby back ribs with corn on the cob and fries
