What's included in Murder Mystery Weekend

Enjoy a weekend away with friends for any kind of special occasion with this amazing Murder Mystery Weekend package.

How does it work on the night?

Your event is completely private to your group; you're not sharing with other people. The whole thing is delivered in a private dining room at a hotel. Two actors are will co-ordinate the event and move the plot along. Each of the guests is given a character to play for the evening, depending on the plot which you can see below. The evening is run alongside a meal. Typically this includes a 2 or 3 course dinner.

The event works for between 7 and 30 guests although more can be accommodated with other plots for larger groups. Each guest is sent an invitation letter prior to the event explaining their character, giving tips for costumes and what you have to do.

Where can I do this?

We can organise a Murder Mystery Weekend at almost any location in the UK, including hotels or houses. You will find some example hotels further down the page, in addition to example prices.

Murder mystery themes

We can't give much away due to the nature of the event, but here is a quick snippet of what you can expect.

For a Hen Party - The Jealous Bride: 

The plot is based around a group of famous women who have been invited on to a cruise by their very rich and, equally famous, friend. These characters are based on famous people, so you may be asked to come along as Lady Gaga or Patsy or Eddie from Ab Fab. It is not long into the cruise when an unfortunate death occurs. Now who could that be I wonder??? You have to solve the case whilst eating and drinking as is befitting a hen night or weekend. The bride-to-be and groom-to-be are interwoven into the plot as integral characters, as are any other facts you wish to give us about your guests.

For a Birthday or small Corporate Event - The Curse Of Solomon's Ring: 

Professor Howard Carter, the famous archaeologist, has been excavating Tutankhamun's tomb. Professor Carter has uncovered many old artefacts that were buried with the pharaohs. It is said that only bad will happen to those that interfere with the ancient burial rites of the ancient Kings. Professor Carter has been invited by the King & Queen to give a talk to their guests. He has brought with him Solomon's Ring. It is said that those who touch the ring shall discover the truth behind the curse associated with it. Will you be brave enough to touch it on the night???? Your character may be an Egyptian veiled aristocrat, a famous film star such as Mae West, Gypsy Rose Tealeaf - who has spiritual powers or even the King or Queen themselves.
