An Egyptian murder mystery played out at Worthing Leisure Centre when the Phoenix Friday 50+ Sport and Social Club gathered for a social evening.

The club’s thespian group, Phoenix Players, provided a great evening’s entertainment with Mystery of the Pyramids of Giza, an Egyptian-themed dinner and fancy dress.

Jeanie Dickenson, club co-ordinator, said: “On this occasion, the parts were enacted by the thespians with audience participation.

“The event is produced annually by Janet Bowers and this year was jointly directed by Phil Spanton and Pauline Wormald.

“Everyone enjoyed the evening and the themed meal created by the catering manager, Nicci Parish.”

The best costume prize of a bottle of fizz was won by Jane Bristow, who dressed as Cleopatra. There was also a prize for the team who unmasked the murderer, played by David Oakley.
