Something wicked this way comes…The Assembly House is hosting a murder mystery night after darkness falls with a delicious mulled wine and canapé reception in the Grand Hall, a sumptuous three-course dinner in the beautiful Music Room and a night of frighteningly good immersive theatre as you dine.

Theatre company Dreamstone Productions has created an Assembly House-themed murder mystery based on the history of the House, guaranteeing a night of thrills, chills and at least one kill on a Winter evening at Norwich’s most glittering address. Dare you join us for the event of the season?

The plot…

It is 1754 and King George II is on the throne.

Norwich architect Thomas Ivory is presiding over his newly opened House of Assemblies and local gentry are gathered to enjoy a grand meal and see Ivory’s theatre group, The Norwich Company of Comedians, perform.

Everyone is anticipating a marvellous night of fine dining, glamour and entertainment – exactly what the Assembly House was built for!

However…putting on a play may be far more complicated and dangerous than Ivory and his group realise. There are some surprises on the guest list and people there with dark pasts and secret motives!

Do you dare join Ivory and his friends to help them celebrate – and even perhaps help to figure out Whodunnit? Beware – if you do you will be in for a killer evening! Georgian dress is encouraged…but definitely not compulsory!

The menu:

A glass of mulled wine and canapés on arrival in the Grand Hall.

Spiced prawn tartlets

Warm tomato tartlets

Stilton toasts

Savoury walnut cakes


Mosaic of smoked chicken, ham, pheasant and pistachio, spiced marmalade dressing, malt bread (Chilled beetroot Charlotte, pickled red onion, hazelnut and apple )
