The unique events offer the chance of a digital get-together for families, friends, team building, staff parties and special occasions as teams can work virtually to solve clues together.

Participants will watch events unfold in a professionally performed play before flexing their detective skills as they interrogate each suspect in turn in digital breakout rooms to get to the bottom of the crime. The murder mystery events feature actors Karen Bartke, Kenny Boyle, Gillian Massey and John Love.

Moira McFadden, Head of Community and Arts at East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, said: "We're inviting all aspiring wizards and detectives to join us for a great evening of virtual entertainment, full of fun and mystery.

"You can team up with other audience members to interrogate the suspects, piece together the clues and make accusations, making it the perfect group activity to play from home, or you can come along solo and join in with the group fun.

"Eastwood Park Theatre is delighted to be able to bring quality entertainment from your home. This was made possible through a successful funding application to Creative Scotland to continue to support performers and entertain our audiences until we are able to return to the auditorium."

Aspiring wizards from four houses learn to defend themselves in the face of whispered rumours about dark wizards, during Murder at Wizard School on 28 March, which is recommended for ages 10 years+.

Something is amiss at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and when someone turns up dead at the school for magic, it takes a lot more than a normal detective to solve it.

Channel your inner detective for a Cluedo-style mystery with Murder at Eastwood Manor on 16 April. Lord Cluckington of Eastwood Manor has recently purchased an exceptional work of art which is set to be unveiled until a dead body is discovered in the master bedroom...

The murder mystery events are being brought to screens by the team at Eastwood Park Theatre, part of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure. The theatre was awarded a grant from the Scottish Government through Creative Scotland and the funding is being used to bring entertainment to be enjoyed virtually, while supporting local artists and organisations and plan for a sustainable return to the theatre.

Murder at Wizard School takes place on Sunday 28 March at 3.30pm and is recommended for ages 10 years+, participating children should be supervised by an adult.

Murder at Eastwood Manor is scheduled for 7.30pm on 16 April.
