The S.S. Great Britain prepares for Winston!

Murder Mystery witnessed on Bristol based Ship

murder-on the pier

Hushed whispers and knowing looks across the room were the order of the day as the villagers of Alldown-on-the-Rasel prepared for a secret visit from the Prime Minister Winston Churchill, to view the latest invention as part of the war effort to thwart the Axis powers – ‘The Great Panjandrum’.


But all was not well, the rocket scientist looked decidedly dodgy and before anyone knew it, he was staggering along the ships wonderful stateroom, gasping for breath, before crashing to the floor. Murder By Design were at it again and another murderous production was underway for the general public on board Brunel’s maritime masterpiece the s.s. Great Britain.


Almost 100 people witnessed the wartime story unfold before their eyes and by the end of the evening more bodies turned up but everyone thankfully left safe in the knowledge that the murderer had been apprehended.

Murder Mystery Dinner on the Pier – Sell Out!!


The Grand Pier in the bay of Weston-super-Mare was transported to the 1930’s last friday. Everything was ship-shape and Bristol fashion in this nautically themed Murder Mystery Dinner. On the menu were a few Red Herrings and some got their just desserts at this sell-out event.

The bumbling PC Bailey was on hand to keep the mayhem in check (well try to, anyway), whilst the rest of the characters did their best to stay alive.

The dinner guests, who joined in with the 1930’s theme with fabulous dresses and fine tuxedos, were joined at their tables by the characters.

From the beginning it was clear that, in the words of Cole Porter – Anything Goes. Hilarity and confusion followed until the Policeman helped the guests to the final denouement.

murder-mystery-on-the-pierThanks to the sell-out success of this event, the Grand Pier have added two Murder Mystery dates to next year’s calendar.

13th March 2015 & 18th September 2015.

Put them in your diary now!!

Here’s what the Grand Pier had to say –

“I would like to thank 1st Call Entertainment for the fantastic Murder Mystery event they recently did for us at the Grand Pier. The event  was a sell out and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
