Malice in Wonderland – Kids Murder Mystery Event

Sunday 17th April | First entry from 12.00pm

We’re all mad here, but one is madder than any other, as Lewis Carroll has been found dead and it seems one of the very characters he brought to life has escaped the pages of Wonderland and taken his! Why? You might ask, well, it seems one of these once imaginary individuals felt that their part was all too small in the well-known stories of Alice’s time in Wonderland. Don’t be late, you’ve got a very important date with the inhabitants of Wonderland, they’re here to help you figure out who it was…

Get your super sleuth skills at the ready and prepare for a trip down the rabbit-hole, as you play detective in order to solve the mystery and uncover the culprit who committed this confounding crime. Once you embark on your adventure, you’ll get the opportunity to seek out characters to question, uncover clues and unravel riddles to reveal which of the Fairy Tale Villains carried out the dastardly deed. Curiouser and curiouser!

Part Mystery, part Scavenger Hunt and Treasure Trail, this interactive event is fun for all the family. Just make sure you don’t lose your head whilst you seek out the solution and head towards your happily ever after!

Your quest should take you around an hour and a half (quicker if your investigatory skills are sharp!). Available quest start times are as follows:

12.00pm / 12.15pm / 12.30pm / 12.45pm

Tickets are £15 per child (under 12) and £9.50 per adult. A family ticket (x2 adults & x2 children) is £45 – this also includes entry into the gardens throughout the day. Click here to purchase your tickets and solve the mystery at hand!
