'You are cordially invited to the Ball of the Lord Mayor, George Benson...'


The numbers of Lord Mayor George Benson’s allies within York are dwindling fast. An unlikeable and uninspired man, he faces strong opposition from the guilds and even from the Aldermen of the city. The only thing keeping him safe is the power and authority of his position. In an effort to sway the influential people of York to his side, he is holding a ball in the newly finished Mansion House. Time will tell whether his efforts will succeed, or if he has merely hastened his downfall by gathering all of his enemies in one place, his own home.


Come and join us for an evening of grandeur and mystery, dress in your finest and be greeted with a glass of prosecco as you step through the big green doors. The evening will begin with a quick tour and end with a terrible murder for which you and your team must solve!
