A relatively small market town in Medieval times, Birmingham became a shining beacon of the Enlightenment movement in the Midlands throughout the 18th century. Hailed as the ”first manufacturing town in the world”, it pioneered important worldwide developments in science, technology and economic reform. One of our favourite locations for our innovative murder mystery events.
A strong Anglo-Saxon settlement dating from the 6th century, it sits mighty on the Birmingham Plateau 1000 feet above sea level. The city stretches over what was originally the ancient Forest of Arden and its haunted history lives on in Birmingham’s dense oak tree cover.

Deep in Shakespeare Country sits Ansty Hall
, a historic manor house retreat surrounded by eight acres of beautiful landscaped gardens. The Library and the Drawing Room are just right for our period drama Who Killed His Lordship?
