Story Summary

The year is 1929. Due to the rising influence of the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald and his cause to overthrow the Muggle world, the wizarding world at large is in a state of heightened tension. With the recent Stock Market crash, and the effects of a global scale economic upheaval affecting the magical community, a valiant effort to unite the magical Commonwealth fractions has been made.

The Quidditch World Cup is to held in Scotland in a few days time. The two teams that will compete are the Canadian National Quidditch team and the Scottish National Quidditch team, both of which are travelling onboard the Express when the worst occurs. A high ranking official from the Department of Magical Games and Sports has just been murdered onboard the Hogwarts Express. All the passengers and train staff are deemed suspect.

An unhappy coincidence? A professional rivalry gone wrong? A dark wizard plot to ruin the control of the Ministry of Magic? Or is there a far more sinister motive at work? There is only one way to find out.

The murder mystery will play out in the Hogwarts school setting as patrons get to choose which characters they will play and how in-depth into the clue finding they would like to be. Era appropriate costumes are encouraged in order to enhance the experience but are not required.
