With the first modern sprung dance floor in Europe, and frequented by King George V, the Queen and royal consort, the Grand has the reputation as the place to be and be seen.
Centre of the tea dance culture, the Grand’s ballroom is brought to life with couples quickstepping and waltzing around its sumptuous surroundings.
But it seems the tea dances aren’t always attracting the most salubrious clientele, as this evening, the regular moonlight, dancing, love and romance has been disrupted by a murder. Charles Stone, leader of the Palm Court Orchestra is dead, his body discarded in a corner behind one of the many potted palms in the building.
The question is… who killed him?
This is an audience participation night and we’ll be asking for volunteers to take part as our suspects.
