The Team

Your event can include a Countryside Clue Hunt.  Search for evidence on an orienteering style clue hunt then peruse the clues over a pub lunch.

School Events cover a range of elements from the Literacy and Drama Curriculums and are great for team building too.

Perfect for Corporate Team Building Events - problem solve with your colleagues and work in teams to deduce which of you is a cold blooded killer!

About Us

Our Focus

Our focus is to create bespoke, fun and affordable murder mystery events for 10 to 100 people.  All events are fully facilitated by plot writer, Helena Tendall.

Our Events

Our murder events are unique.  There are no outside actors.  You each play a role in an intriguing murder plot.  Your mission is to stop your character being implicated but at the same time try to work out who IS the killer!  No-one knows whether they are the murderer until the final act. The whole event is fully facilitated by plot writer, Helena Tendall.

Prior to the event every member of your party will receive an invitation detailing their character role, what to wear and a synopsis of the plot.  On the day, individual booklets are provided which act as scripts. 

After Introductions and Alibis the guests embark on a Clue Hunt to search for evidence either around the venue or on an orienteering style countryside clue hunt (great for rambling groups).  This is followed by a quick fire question and answer session (don't worry - questions and answers are all provided in the booklets).  Deductions are then made either individually or in teams.  Finally, the Investigating Officer (A.K.A. plot writer Helena Tendall) will reveal 'whodunit'.  It could be YOU!

Great for:

Corporate Team Building,

Hen Parties,

Fundraising Events,

School Events (Year 6, KS2, KS3, KS4 & Sixth Form),
