Crime buffs in north Norfolk get the chance to decide the guilt or innocence of a man in a murder mystery brought to life by former detective Gary Powell.

Death in Disguise at the Mo Museum allows the audience to become the jury at the Old Bailey in Victorian times, and concerns the trial of a man accused of an horrific double murder.

The true story of the Chelsea Murders will be brought to life by Mr Powell who has recently retired from the CID.

Violent crime was unheard of in Victorian Chelsea, so the double murder of a man of God and his housekeeper in two attacks in May 1870 shook residents to the core.

The crime was solved following the discovery of a packing box dripping with blood, and the capture of a mysterious French nephew.
