The Norwich Detective Day will take place on Saturday, March 28 and is an outdoor activity that sees participants solve a magical mystery.

It has been created by CluedUpp, who have previously brought a murder mystery game to the city, and the clues to crack the case will all unfold virtually on their app.

CluedUpp events are just like a giant game of Cluedo and their mysteries have been played by over 42,000 detectives in 38 countries worldwide, which also includes America, the Netherlands and Germany.

The game is entirely self-guided and is solved in teams of up to six, with a briefing sent via email two weeks before the event.

You will be invited to start at a secret location, perhaps even platform 9 3/4, anytime between 10am and 1pm and witches and wizards fancy dress is encouraged.
