The Reading of the Will

It is 1935. Felix Abercrombie, a retired wealthy businessman, has died and his family and friends are gathering for a dinner party and the reading of his Will. Felix Abercrombie had retired after successfully running businesses in the mining industry in the Tamar Valley and, using his expertise and business acumen, he had spotted the mass market for tourism and made an even greater fortune late in life. He had invested his money in land and property and, at the time of his death, was a wealthy man.

His eldest son, George Abercrombie, had taken charge of the business after his father’s retirement. His son, Philip had moved abroad some years before, where he worked with the Copper mining industry in Northern Rhodesia. Up until Felix’s death, his daughter, Rebecca, had looked after him, with the help of family friend Dr Richard Hargreaves.

On the night of his 90th birthday, after a family party, Felix suffered a fatal heart attack. As he had a weak heart, the excitement of the party had simply proved too much for him.

Felix had decreed that his Will should be read at an afternoon tea party held to celebrate his life, and so, tonight, George Abercrombie, has called family and friends together to open and read the Will.

However, not all goes as expected and before the evening is over someone is murdered. After the murder one member of the group takes charge of the investigation. All the clues are there to lead to the right conclusion, but will they be correctly deduced? The investigator, with the help of the other guests at the afternoon tea party must get to the truth before the afternoon is out!

The Afternoon Tea experience ticket price includes scones, cream and jam, cocktail sandwiches/rolls of various fillings, a selection of cakes and savouries. Plus tea or coffee.
