“The Manchester Murder Mystery team truly delivered a night to remember. Not only did they provide 2.5 hours of entertainment, they created a wonderful, inclusive atmosphere that got everyone involved, relaxed and chatting. These ladies really know how to put on a show and left everyone feeling like they’d had a brilliant night out.”

– Susie Hughes, Branch Manager of RSPCA Manchester and Salford


“Our entire focus is running social events which double as icebreakers, and you can’t do much better as an icebreaker than one of these gals’ custom whodunnits. Even people who know each other well will have a whale of a time reimagining each other as shady characters with sinister motives. If you like, games and features can be added where characters get up on stage in front of everyone to compete for extra clues — The Murder Mystresses are well experienced at generally tailoring the event content to suit your requirements.”
