I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when our party of seven arrived at The Wild Boar Inn for a Fawlty Towers meets Murder Mystery evening on Friday! Yes, it was everything that has just come to mind … Manuel in full slapstick style, Sybil’s soul shivering shrieks, Polly lending a note of sanity to the madness, a murder, a few red herrings and of course, Basil’s bumptious buffoonery! All this, plus a chorus or two of operatic singing, a bowl of salad being let loose across the room, a mysterious German guest but ‘don’t mention the war’, a cleverly crafted plot to keep you guessing ‘who dunnit?’, champagne, canapés and a three-course meal from The Wild Boar Inn, Grill and Smokehouse.

I was expecting an evening of fine operatic singing. After all, Nicky Spence is hailed as ‘Scotland’s top tenor’ and has been getting some excellent reviews of late. I was not expecting to be so thoroughly entertained by Nicky’s quick wit, humour and engaging repartee. His personality and performance launched the Low Wood Bay Events Calendar beautifully and set the stage for an excellent season of top class entertainment.
