Who done it murder mystery

What happened to poor George Hargraves? He was found strangled in his bedroom. Who committed this terrible crime? This is ladies and gentlemen, a sombre occasion.

Not a real mystery, but one concocted by crime writer, Martin Edwards. A mystery with four possible suspects for the audience to play detective and work out who is the killer.

 The four suspects were very abley played by library staff of our local public library, who read out their statements. Finally, the possible solutions on paper were collected from the audience and after an interval, 3 winners emerged, each winning 3 copies of Martin Edwards’ crime novels.

 This Victorian murder mystery evening was a lively event taking place in the local public library as part of the National Year of Reading. This iniative aims to encourage people of all ages and abilities to read more. Such an event illustrates how public libraries are not always ‘stuffy’ places but they can engage people in fun and brain-teasing activities and encourage reading at the same time.
