Graham

26th June. A real tradegy

Sad to report the death of our chief organiser and founder member of Murder and Chips, Graham Whittaker - who was tragically killed in an accident recently.

We are all devastated at what has happened - but in the spirit of Graham, who was never one to miss a booking, it will be business as usual, since the Christmas season is upon us, and we have lots of events coming up. As next in line to the throne, as it were, I will be taking over the running of Murder and Chips.
Cheryl

3rd July. More tragic news

More shocking news befell us today, our long standing friend and actress Cheryl McGinnis has passed away in what seems to have been a most bizarre accident.

Our prayers go out to Cheryl's family at this very sad time. If you are an actress and would like to audition for us please contact me. We are looking for a quick learner with singing and dancing skills. Accents are a bonus, but not essential. Own car preferrable (I can't be picking up and dropping off at stations hither and thither).
