Black Udder: An Elizabethan Execution

2nd June 2023

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

The year is 1570. Queen Elizabeth is on the throne, surrounded by her loyal courtiers, and England is at war with Spain. Just this morning, with guile and cunning more usually seen in foxes graduating from cunning school, Lord Less, the Lord High Executioner has managed to extract the name of the Spanish mole in the palace , but before he can bring the news to the Queen, he is discovered dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs, his head partially severed from his neck by an axe which looks to have been wielded by a decorative suit of armour. Was his death an accident? Or is it more likely his murder was undertaken by the Spanish spy to conceal their identity. If so... who is it, and can anyone uncover the murderer before they strike again? Join Beith Theatre Group in conjunction with Beith Heritage and Cultural Society for an evening of murder, hilarious antics and sausage rolls, as we investigate who the mysterious killer is, in the style of a well known 1980's sitcom. There will be light snacks and a bar available on the night, along with a raffle, side-splitting entertainment and prizes for the keen detectives at the winning table.
