Pirates in the Dockyard Murder Mystery Dinner Party, Portsmouth


‘Pirates in the Dockyard’

 A Christmas Murder Mystery Dinner Party

At the National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

7.30pm – 11.00pm Saturday 14th December, 2013

If you could join a Pirate crew which crew would you join?

Would it be the crew of the dashing Captain Jack or ‘the salty sea dogs’ of Captain Bombosa? Or perhaps you feel your allegiance lies with the refined elegance of the Royal Navy and the East India Company?

This Christmas, you will have an opportunity to join a crew at the pirate themed murder mystery at the National Museum of the Royal Navy.

Across a full evening of rip-roaring pirate themed entertainment you will experience dinner with the three crews; beginning your evening with the refinement of the East India Company.

By the main course you will find yourself all at sea with Captain Jack and by dessert you be immersed in your very own pirate court, with one special diner elected as the Pirate King to oversee the proceedings. The court has been called because there has been a murder!

A notable Sea Lord has been found dead and one of the crew is responsible! You must choose your allegiance wisely as you help the characters unravel what has happened, and it’s a race against time to find out who’s guilty before you sail back to port.

If you fancy a Christmas party with a difference, why not join the fun in the magnificent setting of the National Museum of the Royal Navy within Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. With the backdrop of HMS Victory, enjoy a superb meal and drinks and spend your evening at a murder mystery with a twist!

With themed music and entertainment all evening this will be one Christmas party you will talk about for years.
