Saturday February 27, 2021 @ 6:30 pm

Havdalah, followed by a Purim Murder Mystery Extravaganza for Everyone Across the Generations (may not be suitable for younger children!)

6.30pm Havdalah - 7pm Purim Murder Mystery Extravaganza

Both via Zoom! Details below (using the regular Havdalah Zoom link)

Join us for a gripping evening of fun and intrigue as we celebrate Purim online with a Murder Mystery – Murder at Merkister Hall. The suspects will be played by SWESRS thespians, the mystery will be solved by you!


It’s the 1930s. The great depression is over, the pound is competing with the dollar on the open exchange and there is a rise in business of all shapes at sizes. It is a time of prosperity for the social elite, and tucked away in the leafy depths of the countryside, the residents of Merkister Hall, Brigadier Balderdash and his wife Vashti, are just two of those who have achieved a very comfortable life.

Keen to share their good fortune with others, the Balderdashes regularly play host for sumptuous dinner parties at their stately home which involve nothing but the best wines, fine cuisine and traditional after dinner entertainment. This evening was to be no exception. The guests had all arrived as planned and with the food ready to be served in the kitchens the party only lacked one thing, namely the butler Leversham who has been discovered dead, in the Billiard Room!

With the butler murdered, the question everyone must answer is: who did it?


Before each scene SWESRS musicians will serenade us, providing musical entertainment for our night out, and in between rounds we will have the chance to enjoy a drink, raise our glasses and chat in the Break Out Bar. Bring your own bottle and nibbles!

Feel free to dress in evening wear to make the evening sparkle!

Please register for our Purim Murder Mystery Extravaganza by Thursday morning, 25th February by emailing the office at or calling the office on  0208 599 0936.
