This year's Grosstete Company Supper held a surprise for the lower year groups as they witnessed 'Murder at the Juice Joint'!

Everyone looked absolutely splendid in their 1920s attire; feathers, pearls and flapper dresses were the order of the evening. The diners were addressed by Rosie Marie, the owner of St Mary's first speakeasy, and told to expect the unexpected. As the murder mystery unfolded, Notorious Nick (aka Elsie), was 'bumped off' and the girls were called upon to assist P.I. Pinkerton (Hebe). Sixth Formers had been well primed and were actively playing their roles to perfection as the rest of the company carried out various lines of investigation. Charlotte won Best Costume and Emily won the lucky dip to guess the murderer.

All funds raised on the evening went to The Rainbow Trust (a children's charity which provides emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness) and, in conjunction with Grosstete's 'mufti day', £300 has been raised to date.  

Special thanks go to Elsie and Jess for organising such a wonderful evening.
