The Main Event

What better way to spend your evening than to be part of a murder mystery event whilst eating a three course dinner!

Get your friends and family together and play along as the plot unfolds in the ultimate who dunnit.

While you are enjoying the evening refreshments and three course dinner, the plot will unfold with scenes acted out around you involving a number of professional actors who are central characters to the story. There are also victims and suspects who will mingle with you as guests while you ask them questions and interrogate them trying to solve the mystery!

With scenes including arguments, flights and reconciliations to provide you with clues, this evening will be a night of wonder and revelations, but most of all, it’s a night with a difference that you’ll remember for a long time!

Typical running order of the evening

Role-play murder mystery event and dinner theatre events tend to run for about 3 hours, so with an approximate 7:30pm start the event would finish at around 10:30pm.

7:30pm 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.

8:00pm Sit down for dinner. Dinner is announced and the guests take their seats; the two professional actors play out a dramatic scene, ending in who knows what? Bloodshed?

8:15pm 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.

9:30pm 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…

10:00pm 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 the best fancy dress competition!

10:30pm End of murder mystery event.
