Sudden Death at Thornbury Manor

A historical crime

The year is 1929 and at Thornbury Manor, home of the Maltravers family, all is not well. Lies, deceit, treachery and fraud are rife and soon a body will be found. A real treat for lovers of Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs and Agatha Christie mysteries

Jump forward to the present day to a TV programme based on the events of that fateful night in 1929. Watch the performance, receive copies of evidence gathered by the police all those years ago, question the suspects then decide who-dunnit and why. Will you reach the same conclusion as the police did in 1929, or do you think someone else was involved?


Written by Chris Lewis and Carol Hutton, and adapted for virtual performance by Bridget Wilkinson, this production will be performed by freelance actors in lockdown. Spread over the weekend with clues to unravel, video footage to analyse, suspects to question and prizes to be won.
