Mystery Dinner

What mysteries lie beneath the glittering Tudor façade of Meadow Brook? Will you find out?


The game is afoot, and this time it’s a stolen diamond! Meadow Brook’s annual Mystery Dinner invites amateur sleuths for a captivating evening of mystery and mayhem at the Great Estate. This immersive and interactive event includes a three-course meal, cocktails and a chance to solve the mystery.

Mystery Dinner 2023 theme:
Now You See It; Now You Don’t

You and your guests are cordially invited to the grandest museum event of the year. Come dressed in your fanciest gowns and suits to sip cocktails and wander the exhibits before gathering for the reveal of the museum’s prized display, the Stomach of the Ocean Diamond.

But wait! All is not well and the guests are shocked to find the diamond had been stolen while the crowd mingled in ignorant bliss.

Now it is up to you, your guests, and the detective to find the thief and restore the diamond to its rightful place to get the soiree back on track! Who is the carat caper, and who will solve the crime to make this night of mystery the night of beauty it was intended to be?

It will be an evening of high fashion and mystery, with one thrilling conclusion.
