About the event


£25-£30 Doors: 6.30pm. Show: 7.15pm. Ends: 10pm. Includes Intervals. Bar till 10.30pm. (BSL Interpretted performance)

Hosted by local literary legend and international author Ann Cleeves (Shetland & Vera) who will guide you through her immersive murder mystery, Bannocks and Blood, the scene will be set for intrigue. Set in Shetland (and featuring local actors Steve Byron, Paula Penman, Dave Raynor, and Karen Traynor), you’re invited to play detective and figure out whodunnit? There will be bannocks. There will be blood. There will be prizes


To warm up the affair, Newcastle's improv comedy group, The Suggestibles will get your laughter chops chopping with spontaneous theatrics inspired by your suggestions. There will be photo opportunities, homemade cakes and pastries, and a raffle on offer too.

All profits will be donated to our charitable cause to transform a vacant property in central Newcastle into an Accessible Creative Arts Hub. Your support is greatly appreciated. We hope the funds raised will help get us over the line of our all-or-nothing Crowdfunding Campaign that ends on 13th March. We’re very thankful to The Black Swan, Ann, all the performers, and our volunteers who are all freely supporting the event.
