Typical running order
For private murder mystery events you may choose the start time, but we recommend a drinks reception for either 7pm or 7:30pm. Advise all guests to arrive on time as we cannot start without all the suspects there!
Role-play murder mystery event and dinner theatre events tend to run for about 3 hours, so with a 7pm start the event would finish at approximately 10pm.
7:00pm Drinks reception. Meet at reception for pre-dinner drinks, where clue-packs and your character breakdowns are distributed. You will get to know who’s who so keep your wits about you so you don’t miss a clue.
7:30pm Sit down for dinner. Dinner is announced the guests take their seats; the two professional actors play out a dramatic scene, ending in who knows what? Bloodshed?
7:45pm Dinner is served. Each course is served and the comic plot unfolds. The actors guide you through, unveiling the story and its twists and turns. You might be questioned by the detective or reveal an important clue when questioned by a fellow guest during the main course. Word-games and quizzes are introduced during the evening, which may reveal clues to who the murderer is.
9:15pm You solve the crime. Just before the dessert it’s your chance to be a super sleuth and figure out who did the deed! Then hand in your solution sheet in for judging, after which the dramatic denouement uncovers the dastardly villain whodunit. They may come to a sticky end…
9:45pm Prizes awarded. The star prize of one bottle of bubbly is awarded to the winning person and a booby prize to the most absurd solution. But there’s still a chance to win with our limerick competition, free prize draw and best fancy dress!
10pm End of murder mystery event.
