Booking is now closed for this event.

Set in 1929, intrigue and romance lead to murder …….

The ageing wealthy socialite Jay Gatsby is famous throughout California for his extravagant parties, his shrewd business deals, and his womanising.

Several of the guests in attendance at tonight’s party, are indebted to Gatsby financially but the concerns surface as to where Gatsby has raised this finance!!

Join Hollywood’s elite and an ex-lover or two at what could be Gatsby’s last soiree.

Murder mystery at its finest

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
