Murder Mystery Evening

Friday 30th September 2022

Hugging the coastline of a tropical island is the luxury hotel known to all as the Hotel Royale.  With a casino, gym, pool, and spa to compliment the variety of five-star rooms, this hotel attracts the rich and famous, celebrities and stars.

Having a ‘no questions asked’ policy, the Hotel Royale is also known to play host to many clandestine meetings.  It would not be uncommon to come across smuggling operations or criminal exchanges occurring within its walls.

This evening one of the regular guests has been found dead in his room.  With no planes due to leave the island until tomorrow and nowhere else to stay, it means someone in the hotel is the killer of Fransisco Scaryminger!


The evening will begin at 7pm with a pre-dinner drink in the lounge.  Once guests are seated the Murder Mystery will take place around a three-course evening meal.

This is an audience participative Murder Mystery.  If you would like to play the part of one of the suspects, please let us know.

£45 per person


How it works:

A participative murder mystery evening is an evening with a difference.

Rather than going out for a meal and being “entertained” by our professional team of actors, here YOU are the suspects!

Participative murder mysteries are great fun for those who love to “ham it up”. If you are chosen as a suspect on the evening you’ll be given your character booklet for the night which will contain any lines you must deliver.  You’ll also be given information that your character knows about other suspects and background information you will be revealing about your character throughout the evening.  If you need any props we’ll provide them too, all you need to do is turn up, in costume and be prepared for a great night out!


The Suspects

Roger Damsels – M16 Spy

Suave and sophisticated, Roger has enough witty patter and chat up lines to titillate and amuse all the girls!  He always has a gun in his pocket, whether he’s pleased with himself or not!

Ivanna Romp – Russian Spy

Proud of her Russian heritage and very alluringly dressed, Ivanna is not a girl to be trifled with.

Ernst Fuzzyfelt – No.1 at Spectre

With a massive ego and a white cat that goes everywhere with him, Ernst has a foreign accent and is impeccably dressed.

Bunny Ryder – Shell Diver

In a bikini or dressed in relaxed Caribbean style, Bunny is very easy on the eye and a recent conquest of Damsels.

Bobajob – Short Henchman

Usually seen in a black suit with a lethal bowler hat, Bobajob may be vertically challenged but he is not a man to mess with.

Diane Otherday – Spy

Smart, sophisticated, and incredibly attractive, Diane Otherday has always been able to turn heads.
