103 dates, 56 locations, 5 months!
The unique social experiment that has gripped audiences is back! The Murder Trial Live puts audiences into the heart of a murder investigation that has been unsolved for 16 years, in an experiential dining event. The Murder Trial Live 2020 event will see guests take their seat as jurors in the murder trial of The Brewer Brothers. Guest will start by dining on gourmet dishes and drinks and then will take their seats, witness barristers cross-examine witnesses and experts and review physical evidence before providing their final verdict on whether Paul Sutton is guilty of the murder of The Brewer Brothers.
The case examines the case of the Brewer Brothers who vanished without a trace in 1993. Their bodies later discovered underneath the University of York; the murders went unsolved with no DNA link to their killer. In July 2019 Paul Sutton was pulled over for speeding in Glasgow, Scotland where his DNA positively matched to that recovered on the boys remains. DCI Karen Hardy subsequently charged Paul Sutton with the murder of the boys back in 1997. Paul Sutton stands trial for murder this January, where the trial is expected to last for four months.
The question for our jury is did Paul Sutton murder the Brewers Brothers in 1993?
The event, which starts in January 2020, is the brainchild of Birmingham business entrepreneur, and Dragons Den winner, Samuel Piri, 30, who came up with the idea after being inspired by the rise in popularity of true crime documentaries like Making A Murderer, The Staircase and Evil Genius. Sam said: “There’s a real current appetite for crime and justice programmes at the moment and we wanted to test how fit for the purpose our justice system is in this modern age. The fascinating thing about this experiment is that the same trial and evidence could produce different verdicts in different locations – it’s fascinating.” The fate of a man is literally in the hands of the jury.
The success of last year’s show has also seen the company tour a European leg in Ireland & Amsterdam and this year we are back with 103 dates in 55 cities in the UK & Ireland and also our very first-ever New York Tour. The experience has been written with a team of leading criminal barristers and a great deal of research and consideration has gone into the build of this concept to ensure its realism. The concept has also had criminal barristers feed into the case to ensure its authenticity.
There are limited tickets available for events across the UK in 2020.
