Moonstone Theatre are staging a fundraising 'whodunit' for the 1st Sid Vale Scouts and Gateway


Murder most foul is set to take place in the 1st Sid Vale Scouts’ HQ in a 1930s-themed ‘whodunit’ fundraiser.

The organisation will share the proceeds with Sidmouth homelessness charity Gateway.

Moonstone Theatre is inviting guests to an evening of mystery and intrigue.

Setting the scene, a spokesman said: “It’s 1938 and survivors from a ship, wrecked off the Salcombe Regis coast, enjoy a meal with the scouts who helped to rescue them – until a murder is discovered.

“Tickets include a drink on arrival, a buffet served through the evening and the thrills of a whodunit.”

The event will be held in the Sid Vale Scout Centre in the Salcombe Regis Recreation Field from 7.30pm to 11pm on Saturday, March 3.

Tickets (£20) are available from the Dairy Shop, Paragon Books, Woolbrook News, the Red Lion Inn or from Brian Manwaring on 07814 972353.

Alcohol and soft drinks will be available.
