Murder, Mystery and Intrigue19 September

Morse or Miss Marple could do it. Can you? 

Why not join us for an evening of murder, mystery and mayhem as our professional actors from The Company Upfront present a new plot for 2020.

We take you on a leisurely tour of the entire line from Epping Forest to Ongar whilst you enjoy a meal as you question possible culprits! Please feel free to 'dress to impress' - the possibilities for some serious dressing up are endless.

Riverboat to Murder

The year is 1977.

As guests board the river boat ‘Jubilee Queen’ little do they know what a journey they are about to embark on.

The captain appears to be in full control and the boat is ship shape and Bristol fashion. Then an unusual set of events unfold leading to a deadly end for one of the travellers.

The event starts at North Weald from 6.00 pm where you are invited to join our cast of characters for a complementary aperitif an canapes around the station and platform areas. At around 6.30pm you are asked to join the characters and the murder will take place. The train will then be ready to board, you will find your reserved seats on the train. Your detective packs will be set out at your tables too. Drinks during your journey are served from our onboard Flag & Whistle Bar.

The train leaves for Epping Forest at 7.00pm prompt. Main courses are served during a stop at North Weald Station from 7.20pm. During the evening the characters will make their way through the train and offer opportunities for questioning and cross-examinination. From the information and mis-information they give you - are the people on your table smart enough to solve the crime. There's only one way to find out! The winning party will receive a bottle of wine!


The menu will be confirmed during the early part of 2020.


All seats are reserved on this train and come in groups of 4. We won't split up a group that is 4 or fewer people, but the layout of train means that it is inevitable that a group of 5, 6 or more cannot sit at the same table. In some instances you may need to share your table with people from a different party. If you would like to sit with a group that has made a booking under a different name then please send an email to


Fares for this year are £75 per person. Just to remind you, this includes:

We think it all adds up to a fantastic night out!

We are also running another Murder Mystery evening on 13 June.
