Murder Mystery Facts
In a hotel deep in the rolling countryside, a group have gathered for a night of good food and company. While the wine flows and the laughter grows a scream is heard from the corridor. Outside a body lays still and lifeless, but who did it…
The murder mystery show commences during pre-dinner drinks. Suspicious characters enter and mingle with the client. Throughout the rest of the evening the task in hand is to question the sinister suspects – study their alibi’s and motives – watch carefully for any mysterious activities or confrontations – but most of all, have fun.
An opening speech or presentation takes place and various scenes unfold. Observation and attention is essential as crucial information is relayed throughout the scandalous misconduct and dodgy dealings taking place. Towards the end of the pre-dinner drinks a murder occurs and all guests are escorted to the dining room and requested not to let the grisly proceedings spoil their appetite. The client is then left for 10 minutes or so to be seated for starters and contemplate the interesting scenes they have just witnessed.
An authoritative figure enters during starters (Detective etc.). He has acquired various documents that may be of assistance in cracking the case. Evidence packs are issued to each team with vital information. The suspects are then brought in for the separate teams to interrogate.
There will also be a few interactive team challenges and puzzles to solve. (Discernment is used during dinner as not to bombard the client but to give them time to relax and enjoy their food as well) During dessert, the verdict forms are issued – the time has come to accuse the murderer, their motive and method. Over coffee a big finale will reveal the truth and the culprit is unveiled. Prizes for the winning team are usually a box of chocolates and a souvenir certificate to be taken back to the office notice board for some serious bragging.
