At this lunch we were pleased to welcome two newcomers to the group, which meant we had plenty of readers for the large cast play we  were reading: Enid Bagnold's The Chalk Garden, which was both funny and intriguing with a lead character whose past was a dark secret - inevitable revealed before the end of the play.  Why don't you join us for next month's lunch?

September Performance  For our next mystery Going, Going Gone! we are dispensing with dead bodies  but there is still a mystery to be unravelled by the audience. A motley group of the curious and the determined gather for an auction of effects at a small stately home. Among the items under the hammer is an early self-portrait of the celebrated artist J.W. Turnip. It is this that the majority of the visitors are interested in. What draws them all to this particular painting?  We give you the situation, the characters and the stories, and you use your skill and judgement to unravel the mystery. An entertainment for competing teams. And an fun auction you can all join in.
