It's Christmas in July! Three course dinner and an interactive murder mystery show where YOU live the story and YOU solve the crime!

About this event


The Finch family has always loved the holidays - especially Stephen Finch, who has always been known as "Mr. Christmas." In fact, this is the first Christmas in years that Stephen is not working his job in middle management at a local theme park! However this year is going to be extra special.

For the first time in 5 years, the entire family will be together for the almost world famous Finch Family Ugly Sweater Party on Christmas Eve! Noel is home from boarding school, Grandma has recovered from her surgery and even Uncle Sammy has made parole. This is sure to be the merriest of Christmases for Stephen and Monica as the gang is all together again! What could possibly go wrong?

Unfortunately for one family member this Christmas will be a silent night as visions of murder dance in their heads!
