This summer Morecambe is being turned into a giant game of Cluedo and you get the chance to find out who did it, with what and where?

Morecambe BID in association with Morecambe & Vice : Crime Writing Festival presents The Mystery in Morecambe.

Bertram Body, a famous author, has been murdered and the crime could have been committed by one of six people, with one of six weapons at one of six locations along Morecambe promenade.

Police Inspector Clueless has already discovered 15 clues that will lead you to businesses and locations around Morecambe and once you end up in the right place, you’ll find a card that will help you eliminate a suspect, weapon or location from your enquiries.

“It was great fun putting the mystery together’ said Ben Cooper-Muir, one of the organisers of Morecambe & Vice.

“We wanted to put together a puzzle that would take you all over town to get to the truth and it’s perfect for the whole family. The younger sleuths get to seek out the cards to eliminate and then for the more experienced detectives the extra code to crack too. We’re looking forward to seeing how many people can solve both.”

Along the way you’ll also become embroiled in another puzzle that will lead you to what the murderer took from Mr Body when they killed him. If you solve either of the mysteries you could be in with a chance of winning a box of goodies worth over £100.

John O’Neill, Morecambe BID manager, said: “We have already received some great feedback about how everyone is enjoying it.”

The Mystery in Morecambe runs until September 9 with winners being announced on September 10.

You can pick up the booklets from Morecambe VIC, Morecambe Library or find them in participating businesses.

The booklet can also be downloaded at www.morecambecrimefest.co.uk.
