Birthday party murder mystery: Bring friends and family together

Bring friends and family together for a birthday party murder mystery


Organising a special birthday celebration for you or someone close to you is exciting and challenging. You want the occasion to be perfect for everyone involved.

Having arranged the entertainment and locations for hundreds of special celebrations, we understand the importance of care and quality. Our trusted partner restaurants and venues share our commitment to delivering the best customer experience possible, including exceptional cuisine and unbeatable customer service. Requirements such as dietary requirements and accessible venues are catered for, so don’t hesitate to let us know what you need.

Our customers tell us that that our way of getting your guests involved is one of the best aspects of our parties.  Everyone will have a small role to play during the murder mystery, which could be a shifty suspect, a jumpy witness, a defiant detective or a cunning spy. Our in-house scripts are full of good humour that everyone can enjoy, so you and your guests will be laughing until the very end. The entertainment is led by our energetic and experienced hosts who will take you through your murder mystery game.

Suitable for groups of friends and family, we’d love to arrange for you a birthday party not to be forgotten.

"If you want a hilarious evening which all your guests will absolutely love, then book with Manchester Murder Mysteries. Some of my guests were horrified at first at the thought of taking part in an interactive murder mystery but all of them said afterwards that they'd loved it and it was a fabulous evening. Thank you very much for making my 50th birthday party so memorable!"
