AN AMATEUR theatre group is getting ready to serve up murder mystery - with a Bake Off twist.

Conwy Civic Hall Amateur Players Society (CHAPS) will present interactive mystery The Great British Bump-Off, by Lesley Gunn, at the Memorial Hall in Llandudno Junction on Friday, August 24 and Saturday, August 25 at 7.30pm.

During the night, audiences will get their chance to play detective.

The mystery focuses on the village of Crabblebottom, who are preparing for their annual confectionary competition.

The bake-off quickly turns into a 'bump-off' and audiences are tasked with solving the crime.

Margaret Norwood, of CHAPS, said: "We have always wanted to do a murder mystery play but needed a director. Janet Davies offered to take it on and soon found 10 willing cast members.

"The play is set at the start of the annual village bakery competition.

"A new judge is found, to the disgust of the regular judge, the preliminary round is held and three finalists are selected.

"At the bake off final, there is a sudden death. The curtain comes down and it's up to the audience to work out, either individually or in a group, whodunnit and also how and why they did it."

Ms Norwood added that "red herrings" are planted during the play.

"Enough have been planted to make any one of the nine characters possible suspects," she said.

When the results have been noted, the play will continue and the real murderer will be revealed.

Ms Norwood said: "There are a number of possible endings, only the director will know which ending is to be used at each performance."

"A small prize will be awarded to the winners."

Tickets £10. Includes pie, peas and gravy supper. Telephone 01492 584738/07990596527. Alternatively, call into Chapter 11 coffee shop.
