‘What a terrible way for a man to be murdered. Course it’d be far worse if his killer escapes our grasp…’

Part Escape Room… Part Murder Mystery… All to play for, if you dare…

Local theatre company 1UPSTARTS, alongside Youth Arts Takeover, announce the return of Ripper Quays in February.

The show blends aspects of theatre, escape rooms, murder mystery parties and video games to create a unique immersive and interactive experience.
