Grab a ‘Killer Cocktail’ with leading crime authors at Murder Mystery event


Jun 15, 2017

Four leading crime authors, known as the Killer Women, are heading to Crown Street Art Gallery in Darlington on Saturday 10 June, 7pm – 9pm to host a Murder Mystery and whip up some ‘killer cocktails’ as part of the Crossing the Tees Festival.

Authors Laura Wilson, Kate Rhodes, Helen Smith and Melanie McGrath will be speaking about their books and brewing up some refreshing tipples at the Killer Women Murder Mystery event while you try to figure who out committed a heinous crime.

This is your chance to play detective as the four authors lead an hour long investigation into the demise of night club owner and all round villain, Eddie Glass.

To help you figure out the case, you will hear from a host of witnesses and a senior investigating officer as you work in teams to figure who the culprit is and find out why the gangster was murdered in cold blood.

The event has been written by the Killer Women group of crime writers, with input from former Chief Superintendent of Sussex police, and police advisor to Peter James, Graham Bartlett. The event will be followed by Crime Confidential.

This year’s Crossing the Tees Festival welcomes Teesside author Tracey Iceton as Writer in Residence, and there is also the chance to enter the Short Story Competition where entrants can win up to £100. Tracey will be holding a range of writing workshops and one to one sessions to offer her expertise, and help to anyone wanting to brush up on their writing skills. More details can be found at the Crossing the Tees website. 

Tickets for the Killer Women Murder Mystery Event cost £5 (including a cocktail) and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 01642 525199 or at www.crossingthetees.co.uk.
