Would-be sleuths can immerse themselves in local history at a seaside hotel's murder mystery event.

Guests at The Cliftonville, in Runton Road in Cromer, will be transported back to 1902 when technology, transport, the British Empire and feminism were all causing societal shifts.

Cromer itself was facing changes, establishing itself as a holiday resort rather than a simple fishing town and attracting noble visitors for the first time.

The plot will follow a number of guests from different social classes who are all staying at the newly refurbished Cliftonville.

Characters include Sir Evelyn Baring the First Earl of Cromer, his daughter, her mysterious chaperone and Lord Wilding, an eligible bachelor the Earl wants to set her up with. 

Henry Blogg, the famous local fisherman and lifeboat volunteer, has also agreed to meet Olive Edis, a fashionable photographer who wants him to sit for a portrait. 

Participants will have to investigate why any of these people would have murder on their minds and decide how it could have happened.

The event will be hosted by Dreamstone Productions which has been running murder mysteries across East Anglia since 1995.

Donna Triggs and Ian Alldis, who took over the business in April 2023, said it was "really exciting to get involved in local history" and be invited to run The Cliftonville's first murder mystery evening.

'Murder at the Cliftonville' will take place between 7pm and 11pm on Saturday, November 18. 

Tickets can be pre-booked from £55 per person which includes a luxury three-course meal.
