It is 1945 and the war in Europe is over. The soldiers are making their way back home, passing the land girls harvesting the fields and the children playing tag on the bombsite. Oh, the relief to be home, to know that the killing is over, to be safe, or perhaps not so safe…

Get out your hair rollers out and your best dress on, polish your buttons and boots to join Ivy and Edna as they prepare to celebrate VE day with their very own street party.

Under Major Henry’s watchful eye, there are questions to be asked. Where is Grace, come to think of it where is Bert, how can the puddings be missing. Will George and Joe ever leave the pub?

Set within the wonderfully atmospheric setting of the museum, surrounded by aircraft of the day and memorabilia of the war. It is time to put on your detective hats, eat, drink, dance and be merry, and catch a killer!

Dress code: 1940s civilian or Allied forces (or casual, if you prefer not to dress-up)
