Thankfully the murder was only fictional, but it nonetheless served as entertainment to the guests of Exeter Young Business Club's (XYBC) annual ball at the Exeter Golf and Country Club.
On Friday 21 September 2018, young professionals gathered to attend Exeter's own version of Casino Royale, unravelling a surprise murder mystery and testing their chances in the casino, all in aid of the Exeter Leukaemia Fund.
XYBC holds a number of events through the year, providing young professionals in the Exeter business community the opportunity to network, socialize and have some fun.
Izzy Tilley, trainee solicitor at Ashfords LLP and XYBC committee member, commented: "The ball is a great place to meet other young professionals from the Exeter business community. We really encourage people to relax and socialise, as networking is just as much about making friends as making contacts… and no better way to do so than to solve a mystery or try your luck at the casino with some new people, music and a glass of wine!"
