Co-founded by entrepreneur, actor and scriptwriter Craig Wilkinson and production director Ed Borgnis, the Funicular team boasts years of experience bringing events and theatre to life for brands, clients and audiences all over the world.
Wilkinson and Borgnis, wanting to push and entertain audiences further than ever before, partnered in 2018 with the aim of injecting new life into the immersive dining industry, introducing the very best in production technology and premium food offerings from chefs and culinary personalities, putting the audience at the heart of the action.
Set onboard a glamorous train with lavish furnishings, the brand's debut show, 'The Murdér Express' transports guests back in time to the grandeur of the 19th century. Travelling by train for pleasure is in its infancy and with it comes a special kind of thrill. Departing from Funicular’s ‘Pedley Street Station’, passengers are invited to experience 'The Murdér Express' as it makes its first historic journey from London to the fictional town of Murdér in France.
Entering via the Pedley Street Station ‘Seven Sins’ Bar, passengers of 'The Murdér Express' will wet their whistles whilst luggage is packed onboard. Joined by characters such as Frank, an East End Costermonger, Tilley, a music hall star, Vera, a widow in search of adventure, and Cliff, a local antique dealer as they embark on the trip of a lifetime. Guests will board via the elegant dining car, which features plush booth seating and is lit by atmospheric period table lamps. The menu, designed by BBC One’s MasterChef 2017 finalist, Louisa Ellis, will be served throughout the experience, as the story of the 'The Murdér Express' unfolds.
'The Murdér Express' opens on Friday 21st May and will run until February 2022
