About Us


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.
