Solve-Along-A Murder She Wrote

Extra event! A slot has become available this month so we’re presenting an extra show!

The cult hit event Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote continues its residency at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern with an encore screening of the classic episode “Jessica Behind Bars”, following riotous presentations of “Sing a Song of Murder”, “Broadway Malady”, “If It’s Thursday, It Must Be Beverly” and many more! Test your sleuthing skills with this outrageous episode, which sees Jessica getting caught in a riot at a women’s prison, and a murder only she (or you!) can solve.

Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote is a unique and hilarious night featuring games, prizes and audience participation, with special permission from NBC Universal Television. See the show Time Out rated one of 2021 and 2019’s 50 Great Nights Out in London that has played to sell-out audiences across the UK and Australia. Can you solve the crime before JB Fletcher?

Hosted by super-fan Tim Benzie, Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote features:

* A race to solve to the crime, via the Fameometer and the Suspiciometer!
* A Cabot Cove quiz and raffle!
* A singalong to the theme tune with new lyrics!
* Clips and biogs of the campy guest stars!

Tim Benzie is obsessed with Murder, She Wrote, having watched the original series when it was first broadcast, and now relishing the repeats on television everywhere. An award-winning playwright and co-writer of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s 2017-2022 pantos (‘Goosed’, ‘Rubbed’, ‘Slipped’, ‘Pricked’ and ‘Cracked’).

“You’ll be swept away with Jessica Fletcher feels … it has the BEST HOST.”
Time Out London

“I’d challenge anyone to sit through this show and not get utterly invested in figuring out whodunit, whilst smiling at the comfort that this 80’s drama brings.”

“It didn’t take long for Benzie to have the audience in stitches and he had the whole crowd in the palm of his hand the entire evening.”
Bristol 24/7

”For a funny, campy evening, there is little that could beat Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote’s unique qualities and Benzie’s wit and charm. Personally this reviewer can’t wait to revisit
Cabot Cove. Never mind ‘whodunnit’, more like ‘yougottadoit!”

Royal Vauxhall Tavern welcomes all people with disabilities and access needs and we will try and assist with your access requirements.

We strongly advise you to contact us before your visit. Limited free personal assistance tickets are available for most events and we can try to reserve seating if needed, there are seats with an upward step to the raised area and small stools on ground level.

The RVT has an accessible main door, with a small ramp for wheelchairs and is flat throughout the main area. There are toilet cubicles that can be accessed without steps, but are not wheelchair accessible.

On busy events we can’t always guarantee a clear view of the stage for people in wheelchairs, and the cabaret area does get very busy.
