What happens?

On the night

01On the night your guests are greeted by the Murder Mystery Fun team who encourage everyone to mingle in character and find out as much as they can.This creates atmosphere and helps your guests get into the spirit of the night.

The mystery begins.

The mystery is divided into two 30-40 minute acts and begins when the Chief Inspector stands in the middle of the room and questions the major suspects.

We break for the main meal/buffet/finger food after Act one. After the break, the second act begins and carries on in much the same spirited manor as act one. 

The mystery ends

Everybody is given an opportunity to guess whodunit before we find out who the murderer, or murderers are. The murderers are always played by your guests.

After the murderer is revealed we usually give prizes to the best actor and actress. This is our way of saying thank you and
rewarding your guests for getting involved in the fun.

If there is a formal aspect to your night, such as speeches by work colleagues or family members, this is the best time to do it. It gives a sense of closure to the murder mystery.
