Murder Walk By The Castle [Open Air Production]

Double Act drama group

Murder Walk By The Castle

The year is 1330 and a young Edward III rules England but under the ‘protection’ of his mother, Isabella, and her lover, Mortimer. His father, Edward II, was unpopular and, after an uprising led by his estranged wife, had been deposed from the throne and kept imprisoned at various castles before apparently being murdered in an extremely unpleasant way at Berkley Castle. But then a rumour started that the old king was still held prisoner at Corfe Castle and his brother Edmund dispatched a Friar to Corfe to investigate. What did he find out?

Was it all political subterfuge?  Was Edward II still alive or was it his ghost?

All will be revealed along with many other surprises at Corfe Castle on Wednesdays 19 & 26 July and 2, 9 & 16 August 2023 at 7.00pm.

Yes, it’s back! And even better! The highly acclaimed Double Act Murder Mystery Walks are back this summer.

The starting point is in the North Castle Field, opposite the Castle View National Trust car park, just north of the Corfe Castle ruins on the A351. Double Act drama group have permission for their customers to use this car park for the evening.

What could be more atmospheric for a murder mystery than a twilight walk in the shadow of the ruins of the great castle? However, the walk will involve steep rough paths and long grass, and although they will finish before dark for safety reasons, anyone taking part does so at their own risk. Due to the popularity of the past walks and a necessity to restrict numbers for safety, it is strongly recommended that early bookings be made by purchasing tickets online.

Tickets are just £5 a head (under 5s free).

An experience not to be missed!
