Play detective at Teddington Library

Release Date: 07 June 2017

Residents can play detective later this month at a one-off murder mystery event at Teddington Library.

With the assistance of a troupe of local thespians from Teddington’s Youth Action Theatre, Teddington Library will be transported to ‘The Writers House’ where a murder has been committed and attendees will be tasked to solve the crime.

In a dramatic re-imagining of Ann Cleeves’ The Glass Room, written for libraries by the author herself, several suspicious suspects will profess their innocence and leave it up to the audience to determine the killer.

Visitors to the library can come along as a team of six or join a team on the night but places do need to be booked in advance. A prize will be awarded to the team who solves, or comes closest to solving, the murder.

Ishbel Murray, Richmond Council Assistant Director for Contracts and Leisure, said:

“We are really pleased to be hosting this event and we’re hoping that it will bring a new audience into Teddington Library. We are certain that it will be an enjoyable evening, with visitors taking part in witness statements, forensic reports, and of course guessing whodunit.”

Ticket price includes supper and a glass of wine. Soft drinks provided.

  • Date: Thursday 22 June
  • Time: 7 to 9pm
  • Location:Teddington Library
  • Price: £10 per person, booking essential
