Whodunnit? Live Action Mystery Puzzle – Watt a Wonderful Party
As part of Birmingham Heritage Week Aston Hall presents a fun live action mystery puzzle: Watt a Wonderful Party!
It is 1820 and James Watt Junior is celebrating being elected a Fellow of the Royal Society with a wonderful party… except everything goes wrong when one of the guests turns up dead. Can you solve the puzzling mystery?
Visit the hall and question the staff and guests – or should we say witnesses and suspects – to work out who could have done the deadly deed, and why.
This devilishly puzzling mystery may see you visit characters multiple times to check just one last detail, so please allow plenty of time!

The Stable Yard Café and grounds are open from 11.00am-4.00pm. First entry to Aston Hall is at 12pm, with the last timed entrance to the Hall at 3.00pm, and everything closing at pm.
Your timed ticket is for entrance to the Hall, but you are welcome to arrive earlier to enjoy the café and to explore the grounds which are open from 11.00am (we wouldn’t want you to miss anything!).
Some of the characters will be located on the upper floors of the Hall, which are accessed by stairs only. Due to the historic nature of the building, there is no lift access.
This event is free to Birmingham Museums members
Pre-booking is highly recommended. As this event is likely to be extremely popular.
