Would-be sleuths will have the chance to solve a murder mystery while enjoying cakes and sandwiches at town centre café.

The Tea Re'Treat, located in Connaught Plain in Attleborough, is hosting a whodunnit-style experience and will be serving an afternoon tea alongside.

The event is being held on March 6 alongside Yellow Mysteries Entertainment, a local theatre company which specialise in murder mystery experiences.

Duncan Davies, who runs the café alongside his wife, said: "We are always looking to find new ideas and after attending one of Yellow Mysteries' events we thought this would be a great way to offer a different spin on our afternoon teas."

Over two and a half hours, performers will tell the story of the 'killer cake-off' and guests will have to figure out who was responsible by interrogating suspects and listening to clues.

Guests also have the chance to win a prize if they succeed in revealing the murderer.

The murder mystery will be acted out by Yellow Mysteries Entertainment, a parties and entertainment service which hosts private events with its team of actors.

The sandwiches, cakes and desserts which will be served are all made from scratch by Mrs Boreisyte.

The couple, who relocated to Attleborough from Manchester two years ago, opened the doors to the business last August.

The venture was the realisation of Mrs Boreisyte's dreams to run her own café, after previously selling her baked creations at markets and festivals.

Mr Davies added: "Things are going really well and week-on-week we are getting busier and busier.
