In our murder mysteries, we don’t use actors – YOU are the stars! Each guest will receive a small role to play at the event and will work in teams to try and solve the crime. Your host will lead you through games, witness line ups, acted scenes and a lot of laughs! (Event duration typically 2 hours with no dinner, 2-3 hours with dinner).

Not based in Manchester? No problem! We can also plan parties in Blackpool, Preston, Liverpool, Sheffield and Leeds. If you’d like more information, get in touch.

“I would just like to congratulate your whole team on a very, very enjoyable hen party murder mystery on Saturday. Food was excellent, staff were great, had a brilliant time.” – Linda B.
