Booking Info

How a Murder Mystery Night works

We can provide a number of different scenarios but a typical one is as follows:

– Upon arrival, each guest receives an envelope containing a fictitious name tag and a very short description of the person they are meant to be.

– When everyone has arrived a murder takes place. The body will be lying on the floor when two police officers rush in to take control of the investigation, photographing the body, etc.

– At this stage the first course is served. Towards the end of the first course a quiz sheet is distributed by the police officers. The answers to this quiz point to the main suspects.

– The guests are encouraged to mingle between courses to discover the suspects. At the beginning of the main course the coroner’s report is released, giving more clues.

– When most people have completed their main course the officers begin to interview each guest on the microphone. This stage is very funny and lasts quite a long time. The dessert is served during these exchanges.

– When the interviews are finished the answers to the quiz are given out. These answers indicate the eight main suspects who are then questioned by the officers and the remaining guests.

– When all questions have finished everyone writes down the name of whoever they think has committed the crime and their reasons for coming to this conclusion, i.e. what clues they have noted. These submissions are collected by the officers.

– When all submissions are in, the murderer is arrested and the winner announced. This signifies the end of the murder mystery evening and is approximately 3.5 hours after the murder took place.
