Can you solve the Murder on the Bures Express?

The East Anglian Railway Museum will be showing off improvements and renovations to the site in Wake

The East Anglian Railway Museum will be showing off improvements and renovations to the site in Wakes Colne during a ribbon cutting in May.

Wannabee detectives are being invited to attend a murder mystery set in the atmospheric surroundings of a Victorian Essex railway station.

Murder on the ‘Bures’ Express takes places on Friday, June 1, at the East Anglian Railway Museum – which is based at Chappel Station in Colchester.

The event is a light-hearted murder mystery with tongue firmly planted in cheek and guests will meet larger than life characters throughout the show – one of whom committed the deadly deed.

A murder has been committed in the railway goods shed in the heart of the museum and people are invited to use their powers of deduction to solve the crime.

The event takes place at 7pm for 7.30pm and tickets are priced at £29.95 per person.
