― Rona McCall

Wow! We had a fabulous night superb value for money and great fun. We just about managed to work out who did it but didn’t get the motive but will get it next time. …Bringing some entertainment in such a way was just awe inspiring and loved the characters who were very well portrayed by some fab fun actors thank you so much

― Si Thyler

We attended the Hollywood Homicide and it was amazing! So much fun. Didn’t know what to expect. But we ended up having an absolute blast. Interaction with the characters was fantastic …Will definitely be signing up for more.

The performance will run throughout the evening whilst you are served a three-course meal. The evening kicks off with an arrival reception where you have the opportunity to mingle with fellow guests and ends around 3 hours later when the mystery is revealed.

At shared murder mystery events the key suspects are played by professional actors, depending on the plot additional minor suspects may be played by some of the guests who want to join in.
