Due to a venue issue, this event is postponed to Sunday 17 December.
If you love crime novels, cold-case TV shows, or escape rooms, this Science of Crime Event is tailor-made for you. Become a forensic detective for the night and work with your local forensic expert to solve a murder mystery using clues, puzzles and forensic methods.
Beneath the watchful gaze of the full moon illuminating All Hallows Eve, the lifeless figure of Dr Henry Fairweather, a respected local historian has been discovered in the old Dunedin North Post Office building. Driven to unveil his research on reported ghostly whispers and unexplained paranormal phenomena haunting the historic building, Dr Fairweather was about to unveil long-concealed secrets when tragedy struck.
You must find the evidence, solve the clues, and catch the culprit in this immersive experience unique to Dunedin. Crime scene suits and forensic equipment are supplied, and you'll employ real forensic analysis techniques, like fingerprint examination and bloodstain analysis to investigate each suspect. Do you have what it takes to catch a killer?
This is an R16 event. People will be grouped in teams of up to 6. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have booked separately from your party but wish to work together.
