A cocktail party on the Nile, a new discovery, old curses…

The story so far: You are cordially invited to join us aboard the steamboat SUDAN on the River Nile, for an exclusive cocktail party. The evening is to commemorate the historic opening of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, ten years ago on the 26th November 1922, by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.

Amongst the very first to enter the tomb on that infamous day was Robert Mallowan, who is taking this opportunity tonight to announce the new archaeological mission to open a recently discovered chamber within that very tomb. Archaeologists strongly believe it may be that of ancient Egypt's Queen Nefertiti. This expedition, sponsored by millionaire Sir Flinders Petrie, is causing great interest in Cairo. Exciting times ahead!

It is hoped that none of the ‘King Tutankhamun’s Curses’ follow this new expedition ...

Before you arrive in Egypt to board the ‘SUDAN’ you are advised to be inoculated against ‘yellow fever’, ‘malaria’ and ‘typhoid’.

You are invited to dress in the style of the period as you work together to solve the mystery.
