As the calendar turns to 2024, the Whistling Swan Inn invited you to step into a world brimming with suspense, style, and savory delights. Our Murder Mystery Dinners are not just events; they are an invitation for you to step back in time a full century and experience the thrills of the Roaring 20’s, and they await your presence every Friday this January. Imagine an evening where fashion, food, and a fictional foray intertwine, offering an unparalleled experience!
Hosted by the charismatic Audry Burnett, our innkeeper and resident storyteller as she embodies her role of host extraordinaire, the Whistling Swan transforms for one night each week into a stage for deceit, laughter, and becomes a place for you to make new friends and memories. Our guests at these events are no mere spectators, either. As part of this party, you will embody a character; a vital piece of the thrilling story playing out in real-time. As you play your part, you’ll find yourself in a world of secrets and whispers as you work your way toward uncovering the mystery on a night where anyone in the group could be the killer… Including you!
But what is a tale without its setting? Taking place across the ground level of the inn, we invite you to enjoy all of the comforts of this bygone century. Our bespoke, period-appropriate menu is a tribute to the ’20s, from the first appetizer to the last dessert, each bite is a nod to a bygone era, with our signature champagne-based Prohibition Punch adding just the right amount of buzz into the proceedings.
The night is of course not just about the story that you will be watching unfold, and we want nothing more than for you to be an active participant in the tale we spin. Dress in your 20s best for the role assigned to you, and you might just clinch the title for best costume. Or perhaps you’ll be given the opportunity to flex your dramatic muscles, instead earning a prize for the most entertaining “death” scene. And for the keen minds who are able to cut through the web of deceit? The modern-day Sherlock Holmeses and Sam Spades among you? Well, you might find yourself taking home a reward for your skill as the group’s best detective.
At the Whistling Swan Inn, every detail is crafted to transport you to a bygone era of glamour and mystery. From the moment you step in, you’re not just a guest; you’re a character in a carefully crafted world for one magical evening. Whether you’re a seasoned sleuth or have always had a passing interest in the mystery scene, everyone is welcome, and you will find that your experience will be absolutely unique.
