West Berkshire badly needs a local cancer care and renal dialysis unit and thanks to the fundraising of local residents and businesses via The Rosemary Appeal £3.5 million of the £4.5 million target has been met.  Local design agency MAXX is trying to boost the Appeal’s coffers with a fundraising Murder Mystery Evening where every pound raised will go to the Appeal and will then be matched by The Good Exchange, effectively doubling its value.

Come dressed for the 1920s and enjoy an evening of intrigue, murder and mystery.Charaderie, the professional murder mystery company, will be acting out the beastly events that are the Deadly Deeds in Donnington. Who has been murdered, where did it happen and who has guilty secrets?

Enjoy a glass of bubbly on arrival in the hotel’s mezzanine area, followed by a delicious chef-prepared three-course meal.

Other highlights include:

  • Hotly contested prize for the table that solves the murder
  • Spectacular auction, run by Charles Robinson of Jones Robinson
  • ‘Heads and Tails’ game

To book individual tickets, please click here.

To book tickets for a table of 10, please contact MAXX Design directly on 01635 521 224, or email dermot@maxx-design.co.uk
