Home Who We Are and What We Do


 Having worked for other murder mystery companies, and with over 20 years’ worth of  acting experience each, we decided to strike out on our own. We write our own  plots, which are complex enough for detective buffs to find challenging, but wrapped  up in a comedic style that allows everyone to be thoroughly entertained.


 Several of our scripts lend themselves to guests coming in fancy dress, which gives the  evening a real party feel.


 We can cater for groups of all sizes, whether they be at a public event, a private party  or a charity fundraiser, all at competitive prices.


 We have our own PA system with wireless microphones, to make sure that even for  large numbers of guests everyone’s experience is a great one.


 Each event has at least five actors, skilled in improvisation and personally chosen to  be on our team.


 Whether you are a private organiser or an events manager for a public event, we will  provide everything needed for a successful evening. All you need to provide is the  venue and the catering.

 We can be flexible to fit with your needs, but typically a murder mystery dinner follows  the format  below. The majority of the action and questioning  takes place between  courses, with certain  evidence and some scenarios taking place during the courses.




 Weekends begin with the format above on the Friday night, continue on Saturday  morning, and conclude with the format above on Saturday night, and includes dinner,  bed and breakfast for 2 nights.
