Murder on the Menu – ticket info

Unfortunately, due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown, we’ve had to put our current production of Murder on the Menu on hold.

This is a massive blow to our cast and crew, who have worked so hard to get this show to opening night. For now, we plan to reopen the show when we’re able to. As soon as we have a venue and confirmed dates, we’ll be in touch to confirm details.

Ticket information

All current tickets will be valid for the new production. However, if you require a refund for tickets you’ve already purchased, please email to arrange a refund.

Thank you for your support – it means the world to us.
