A Murder for Every Occasion

An outline of each of our plots is below. Some of our plots are set in particular time periods, so taking part in fancy dress is suggested, but is not compulsory.

For each of our murder mystery dinners, meet with the suspects before the meal begins, then your helpful Inspector will guide you through the evening with clues and evidence. Question the suspects over the 3 course dinner until the murderer is revealed over coffee.

Weekends also available.
