Enjoy an evening of thrilling intrigue with the Whitwell Players on Friday 13th June.

Dying is Forever will be performed at Whitwell Community Centre from 7pm.

The evening includes a three course meal, live music and the murder mystery show.

Set in the 1970s, Strongfellow’s Discothèque is the hangout of MI5.

It is the night of James Bondage’s retirement. And he is not happy that he has been put out to graze prematurely - but who could possibly want him dead?

Is it head of MI5 Dick Burns? The head of gadgets Dwayne Pipe? Fellow agent Hugh Jass? The female club singer Tess Teckle? Dodgy bar maid Fonda Dix? Or the journalist Paige Turner?

To guide you through the evening you will be helped out by the show’s very own pair of police detectives Laura Norder and Evelyn Hall.

Tickets are available priced £12 each from the venue Whitwell Community Centre. Or call 01909 723490 to book.

You can also buy tickets direct from or members of Whitwell Players via Facebook.

And don’t forget - members of the audience are encouraged to get into the spirit of the night by wearing costumes of the era.

Flares, frills, platform footwear and fedora hats - anything goes.
