Played using a smartphone app, teams work together to solve clues and see if they can crack the mystery of a murderer prowling the streets of Doncaster.

A spokesman said: 'It's 1958 and the sleepy village of Birkness near the outskirts of Doncaster is gripped with fear. A serial killer is on the prowl...

'The Beast of Birkness has already murdered three people and another has barely escaped with her life. It's only a matter of time before the cold-blooded killer strikes again - and only you can stop them!'

He added: 'The Beast of Birkness is our hardest virtual detective adventure yet - do you have what it takes to crack the case in time?

'It's just like a giant game of Cluedo!'

The game will take place between 10am and 1pm and the cost is £36 per team (up to a team of six).

On the day of the event, players will compete with hundreds of others to track down virtual witnesses, solve challenges, eliminate suspects and rule-out murder weapons all across town
