A club spokesman said: “This is an exciting murder mystery evening, based on a fictional end-of-season Sheffield United awards dinner, filled with intrigue, suspicion, and of course, murder!”

As well as enjoying a three-course meal, guests will be able to take part in a fully interactive murder mystery event, performed by a cast of professional actors.

During the course of the evening, guests will have the opportunity to interrogate the suspects, examine the evidence, and ultimately guess the murderer, with the winner receiving a ‘Star Detective’ certificate and a special prize.

The event will start at 7.30pm, finishing at around 10.00pm, with a DJ and the bar remaining open until around 1.00am.

The game is set in the summer of 2006.
