Billed as Flapperghasted — Murder in Empire City, the production will take place on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 April.

For £25, guests will enjoy a drinks reception on arrival, be served a three-course dinner as well as an evening of entertainment provided in conjunction with the Ayrshire Philharmonic Opera Society (APOS).

Venue is Mauchline Scout Hall, with the programme of events getting underway at 7pm and scheduled to last well into the night.
