Murder Mystery in York, 28th July 2018

We are returning to York to take part in the City-Wide Murder Mystery Event, hosted by CluedUpp.

The Punchbowl, York - 12:00, Saturday 28th July 2018

Each team will get a series of clues to work out who the murderer is, Cluedo-style. We’ll have to walk around the city to locate and solve the clues so choose sensible footwear!

As well as the obvious prize for fastest team, there are also prizes for team name, a kids prize for best little detective, and a prize for best dressed team. The theme is 1960s gangster and glamour, so dress to impress!

More information can be found on the event website.


The plan
We’ll meet at The Punch Bowl between 12-12:30pm, sort ourselves into teams and start the challenge by 1pm. The murder mystery should take between 1 and 4 hours to complete. Afterwards we’ll reconvene at the Punch Bowl for drinks, food and optional gloating from the fastest team. We may choose to move somewhere else after but this’ll give us a good meeting point. May the best team win!


Teams are a maximum of six people, and we have tickets for two teams. Kids and dogs go free. Pay below or Click here to reserve your place for £5 per person.

How to get there
The Punch Bowl is a Wetherspoons: cheap, cheerful and flexible. It is located on Blossom Street, just around the corner from the station. If you're on Stonegate, you're in the wrong Punch Bowl.
