TV personality turned comedian James Redmond on stage, a 40s murder mystery dinner party, and so much more can be found at Chelmsford City Racecourse
Come Die With Me (Friday 18th March)
It’s 1946, the end of World War II. Set in a London Town House. In Kensington, London, a newspaper headline challenges readers to “Know Your Neighbour” by hosting a series of dinner parties. The knives (and forks) are out as a group of strangers compete for the title of ultimate dinner party host. And with £100 on the table to add spice to the proceedings it comes as little surprise that tonight’s meal will end in Murder! Four chefs. Three courses. Two hours. One victim… and you! You are the detective! Can you solve the crime?
The War may be over but the fighting has just begun in this comedy whodunit that pits posh nosh against black market rations in a case that asks if YOU can solve the crime?
Friday 18th March. Arrival by 7pm
Tickets: £40 pp includes a 3 course meal and a murder!
Dress code: suggested period/black tie but not compulsary

Stand up from James Redmond (Friday 25th March)
Join us at Chelmsford City Racecourse for another hilarious night of comedy from Star Headliner James Redmond. Support acts will be Glen Lenny Sherman & Jason Simmons
James Redmond is a dry, slick and subtle stand up who delivers unexpected twists and turns during his set as he deconstructs his art. He made his name as a model and actor and is best known for seminal roles in ‘Hollyoaks’ (C4) and ‘Casualty’ (BBC1) and presenting ‘SM:TV’ & ‘CD:UK’ (ITV), alongside Cat Deeley. He has appeared on ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ (BBC2), ‘Celebrity Come Dine With Me’ (C4) with fellow comedians Paul Foot & Joey Page, and is a regular guest and contributor on ‘Soccer AM’ (Sky 1) & Radio 5 Live.
James performs 6 nights a week, all over the U.K. as compere, or with a set of up to 30 minutes and has done over 350 gigs in his first 2 years, including:
The Comedy Store, Conan O’Brien’s ‘The Tonight Show’ Talent Search (as MC), Comedy Rush at The Shaftesbury Theatre, Jongleurs, Camden, Banana Cabaret, Bracknell Comedy Cellar, The 100 Club, The BBC Club, Spank!, Amused Moose, Soho, Rawhide, Liverpool, The Funny Side and the comedy festivals of Bristol, Exeter, Guernsey, Hull & Liverpool.
He shared a daily, hour-long show at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has also played the university circuit and a range of clubs for his agents, the UK’s largest comedy bookers, Mirth Control Ltd. In addition, he hosts the charity comedy club, ‘Laughing Stock’, in Hampstead, and has hosted charity events at Shoreditch House, Bristol Cathedral & the Indigo O2. ‘Fresh-off-the-telly James Redmond has the makings of a really good comic. His tales of texting, girlfriends and Barry from Bristol are quality stuff.’- Kate Copstick for ‘Fringe Magazine’, Review of Edinburgh Festival debut, 2010
