An immersive experience taking place at the University of Winchester investigating a Winchester Whodunnit?

This event has now sold out. 

Test your detective skills at this special event run by the University of Winchester in which the departments of Policing, Criminology, Forensics and Law have teamed up to create a murder mystery.

The Dean of the Faculty of Law, Crime and Justice, Professor Bill Davies (or a forensic mannequin looking very much like him) has been found dead in a lecture theatre. Foul play is evident. Who committed the murder and why?

The action then moves to the University’s special Crime Scene House which will be set up as Bill’s office. Clues found there are then examined in the Forensics Lab. The case comes to a climax in a special court room where the murder suspect will be in the dock.

There are limited places on three investigation teams which begin enquiries, which will take around 90 minutes, at 10.00am, 11.00am and 12.00pm.

Please note the event takes place across the King Alfred and Medecroft Quarters of the campus where some flights of steps and steep paths may cause difficult for people with mobility issues.

This event is suitable for ages 12+. Ages 12-17 must be accompanied by a paying adult.
