Murder mystery fundraiser plans

Victorian music shows, a murder mystery event and a bike ride are just some of the events planned next month to boost the Butterfly Hospice.

First up is a musical theatre show, being held as a joint fundraiser with Blackfriars Theatre in Boston. ‘Let’s throw a party’ is a traditional Victorian-themed Old Music Hall show featuring St Nicolas Players. The audience will be invited to dress in a Victorian style and join in the sing-a-long as they are ‘transported back to the early 1900s’.

A spokesman for the Boston-based hospice said: “This is a spectacular, colourful, lively production.”

It will take place at Blackfriars on Sunday, September 3, at 6pm. Tickets are £5 from Blackfriars boxoffice.

On September 17, there will be a Battle of Britain Proms night held at the Peter Paine Sports Centre in Rosebery Avenue. Visitors are invited to bring their own picnic and get involved with the flag-waving as the Swineshead Silver Band perform. Doors open at 6.30pm, tickets are £8 from various Boston shops or by calling 01205 311222.

The spokesman said: “We have a murder for you to solve on Friday, September 22, when Cutwater Theatre Company bring an evening of Victorian Murder, Mystery and Mayhem to the Revue Bar at Blackfriars.” Tickets are £5 and are available from the Butterfly Hospice Shop, Boston, or by calling 01205 311222. The mystery starts at 7pm.
