Basel English Panto Group Murder Mystery Event

The Basel English Panto Group, an amateur theater group that since 1994 has been staging a traditional English Panto before Christmas each year, is inviting you to their second Murder Mystery fundraising events. Due to popular demand, there will be two events—one for kids and young teens up to age 14 and one for adults and teens from age 15. Both events take place on Saturday, April 22, but you need to register for your ticket by April 1! Only once you have registered and made the payment will your attendance be confirmed!

For these Murder Mysteries, guests dress up to match the theme of the event and participate in the mystery. After you have registered and paid for your ticket, you will be assigned a specific character and then need to come to the event dressed as the character and act like the character during the event. All guests then work together to solve a fictitious murder that occurs during the party—like a live-action version of the game Clue!

Kids & Young Teen Murder Mystery

The theme of the kids’ event is “Honky-Tonk Takedown.” The Honky-Tonk Saloon is located in the fading western town of Silver Spring. Once a gold-rich mining town, Silver Spring is kept alive by the bustling saloon that serves the best root beer this side of the Mississippi—or so it claims. While sippin’ on some award-winning root beer, you best be ready to solve a mystery and catch a bandit! Everyone in Silver Spring is counting on you at this party filled with mystery and mischief in the Wild, Wild West!

The event takes place on April 22 from 13:00-16:00 in the Panto Cellar at Sperrstrasse 67, 4053 Basel. Tickets are CHF 40 per participant, including snacks and drink. Register to participate at FOR KIDS & YOUNG TEENS ONLY! Panto Murder Mystery Fundraiser 2023 (Sat April 22, 2023 from 13-16h) (

Student & Adult Murder Mystery

The theme of this event is “Murder at Deadwood Saloon.” It’s the 1st Annual Deadwood Poker Tournament Party! For weeks, people have been pouring into the small western town of Deadwood for the biggest poker tournament this side of the Mississippi. From outlaws to marshals to saloon girls, the vast array of visitors and residents of Deadwood have made this small western frontier THE place to be. As the festivities of the poker tournament conclude, a celebration party is planned at the Deadwood Saloon to award the prize money for the tournament and to celebrate what is hoped to be a very financially successful venture for the saloon. With a smattering of bandits, bank owners, saloon girls, gamblers, east coast debutantes, and a few of the locals, this is guaranteed to make for a very interesting evening indeed. You would be a fool to miss this celebration!

The event takes place on April 22 from 19:00-22:00 in the Panto Cellar. Tickets are CHF 80 for adults, CHF 50 for students, and include buffet dinner and a glass of Prosecco (there will also be a cash bar).
