Over 100 audience members, many in period fancy dress, enjoyed delicious dinner as the mystery unfolded around them. There were laughs aplenty, and lots of vigorous waving of Union Flags as the cast led everyone in a sing song session, including favourites such as 'We'll meet again' and 'There'll always be an England'.

As the evening drew to a close, Lion President (and Standlake Player) Phil Birkett was able to announce that the financial goal of the evening had been met, and then everyone got ready to leave and rejoin the present day again!
