A Blast From The Past - Murder Mystery Dinner 15th October

Unravel the murderous mystery at Chequer’s Hotel this October!

Courageous war hero Major Luke Twice was killed in battle back in 1943 leaving behind a dedicated group of friends.

But when they meet again 10 years after his death to honour his memory, questions start to emerge; was there a more sinister and criminal side to the Major?

Are they really gathering here at The Chequers Hotel to honour him or is there more to this than meets the eye?

And what has a missing painting got to do with it? Keep your eyes peeled for unexpected guests, a shocking death and ghostly goings-on as you try and unravel the mystery.

Tickets include a delicious three course dinner and live action interactive murder mystery event  – can you solve the murder? 

Tickets: £39.99

    City Arts 2022 flagship community event returns to Newbury Market place on Monday 8 August 2022 – join them from 10am to 4pm to chalk in the Market Square in Newbury

    On the square you will be allocated an area per household to create roughly a 1 metre square picture in a safe environment – social distancing measures may be in place.
    It is free to chalk but they ask you for a donation towards the chalk if you want to enter our 2022 competition.
    To pay the donation entry fee you can add it to their donations bucket on the day or pay by card at the event (£1 per competition participant).

    They’ll ask you to photograph the chalk artwork when you’ve finished and e-mail them the pictures of the chalk artwork, letting them know the age of the participant (when filling you details on payment).

    The prizes will be City Arts Gift Vouchers for children (to 12 years old), teen (13 to 17 years old) and adult (18 +) categories.

    Date: Chalkfest 2022 is on 8 August 2022 – pay your competition entry either cash or card on the day up to 4pm
    Deadline: Pay your fee at the event and send us your images by 7pm on 8 August 2022 to info@cityartsnewbury.co.uk with the name of the entrant you told us when making payment and the entry number they’ll give you.

    Competition results will be published on their Facebook page on week commencing 22 August 2022. The images will be judged by their chairman and artist Diana Pattenden. The judge decision is final.
