Drama came to the Verulamium Museum in St Michael's when volunteers from the Three Valleys Club played out a unique Murder Mystery in front of a packed audience in aid of the Citizens Advice St Albans District.

The Roman Museum gave a very atmospheric setting to an intriguing plot that involved a mock murder in an imaginary museum on Saturday (Oct 22). Paying guests enjoyed a three course dinner in the rotunda and colonnade and generously helped raise £1,000 towards the running of Citizen Advice’s vital service for the St Albans community.

Three Valleys Club, based in Wheathampstead, has a history of helping this particular charity and also raises funds for other local and national charities through various activities.

“We are pleased to be associated with such a valuable organisation to the public" said Alison Solomon, president.

The event was supported by Councillor Annie Brewster who, as portfolio holder for sport, leisure and heritage, said: “this was an amazing opportunity for talented volunteers to put together a bespoke event surrounded by our iconic Roman collection and all to support a local charity; sometimes overlooked for being mistaken as a government funded service.”
