Murder mystery night at Young Pretender pub in Kings Langley raises hundreds for Cancer Research UK
A Kings Langley pub hosted a murder mystery night on Wednesday to raise money for a charity close to an employee’s heart.
Nearby residents were invited to a special charity evening this week at the Young Pretender, in Hempstead Road.
The event was organised by Lauren Jinks, who has been working at the pub for the last two years as part of an apprentice scheme.
She said: "I wanted to do something quite challenging and this felt quite outside the box and something completely different. It did go really well and I enjoyed it. The feedback we had was really good and positive and has pushed us forward.
"I chose Cancer Research UK as the charity because it is close to my heart because of past family members who have died of the disease."
Staff were dressed in 1920s attire while participants enjoyed the murder mystery game.
Gareth Tibbles, assistant manager, said: "It went really well. It was a great night and it was only our first one, so it went brilliantly. We are hoping to do another one in the next few months because we had such good feedback.
"About 35 people came which was good for the amount of publicity time we had for it. The feedback was absolutely amazing. Everyone wanted us to let them know when we are going to do the next one."
The event raised around £350 for Cancer Research but Mr Tibbles said funds are still on the rise.
