This is an earthy and black-humoured Murder Mystery by Patricia Gay.

"The village of Sodbury End has been run efficiently and firmly by one Jennifer Jardine. Until that is, Mrs Jardine is blown sky-high in her allotment shed whilst potting up a monkey puzzle tree.

When Detective Inspector Grace Murray arrives to investigate this death, all the villagers are quick to assert that Mrs Jardine was such a lovely person and they cannot believe that anyone would want to murder her. But the Inspector digs deeper and unearths some different tales. For it appears that many people had disliked the deceased because of her inflexible regime.

So what dark secrets lie buried in this parochial plot? And most pertinently, who had the greatest cause and know-how to lob a WW1 Mills bomb into Mrs Jardine’s shed - whilst she was in it?"

An entertaining evening at Park Hall, Silver Street, Wythall.

Saturday 21 October 2017.

Tickets: £10 (including a ploughman's buffet)
