Multi-room murder mystery events

With suspects in every room to interrogate, a handful of murder weapons to examine and a crime scene to investigate, your guests will love solving one of our Multi-room murder mysteries!

Fantastic for showcasing your venue and great for team-building, multi-room mystery evenings are popular with all wannabe sleuths and provide guests with the latest version of murder mystery evenings in the UK.

Of all the murder mysteries we run, these are the format guests love the best.  If you really want to show off, then these are ideal.

Multi-room events are designed to be run in multiple rooms in a venue and are a great way of showing off your premises, or getting maximum footfall through what would otherwise be too small a venue for a traditional murder mystery evening.

These events are unique to our firm and have proved very popular with the guests, as it encourages them to interrogate the suspects and locate clues hidden around the building.  There are usually seven to eight cast, one murder occurs before the evening and the crime scene is set up in one of the rooms in the venue.

We usually suggest a roving buffet as the guests move between rooms, but some venues prefer to have a formal two course meal mid-way through the evening.

Sample running order:

For these events guests require a special handout and a pen / pencil to keep track of information presented to them.

We usually suggest greeting all the guests at the door and providing them with a free welcome drink and special colour coded tickets which contain a unique circular order to avoid bottle necks.  A sample route is below.

GREEN TICKETS
7.15  Terrace Suite
7.40  Crime Scene
8.05 Conservatory
8.30 Function Room
8.55 Blue Room
9.20 Ball Room
9.45 Terrace Suite
10.15 Call for answer sheets
10.30 Solution  – Ball Room

Multi-room games are perfect for guest houses or big country mansions and work well in more unusual venues.  We can even tailor a game to include visiting suspects outside!

While we do have a selection of popular themes “ready to go” – we know from experience that these games work best if written for a venue.

Flexible and fun!

We contacted Red-Herring-Games for a party for a special occasion. Why going to restaurants to eat is the preferred activity to mark milestones is beyond me and my friends.   The choice of mystery was obvious, looking at the options from New Zealand on the web Red Herring stuck out from the international options.  A quick look at the site and games showed subtlety as well a range of choices.  The numbers you could have for each evening was important,  Red Herring had scaling options a good range of scenarios but most importantly were Jo and team being flexible, responsive and helpful.

Thank you Red Herring Games for the marvellous 'Murder!  Cargo Connections?' event that you organised for us as part of Museums at Night at the Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby. The whole evening went so well and was brilliant fun.  I know from all the feedback that our visitors had a fantastic time. It was really good working with you and I have no doubt that we will do again in the not too distant future.

I would like to thank you and your colleague for helping contribute towards our successful conference last month.  Everyone really seemed to enjoy the evening and it was rewarding that so many delegates were able to participate in addition to the main "Actors".  Our conference evaluation froms included the following comments:
  • "Enjoyed the evening entertainment!"
  • The evening entertainment was great and the confusion made it great fun!"
With thanks and best wishes.

I had no idea what to expect before purchasing a ticket for Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, which was being staged at a nearby hotel, and feared it might involve taking part in some way. However thankfully for me no acting was necessary, just some amateur sleuthing. "Wedding guests" of which I was one, were called upon to move from room to room in the hotel in groups, questioning a number of possible murderers with the aim of solving the mystery of the dead bridegroom. The interviewees were really fun characters and gave us all some good laughs. Of course they all had motives and it was a case of identifying the shiftiest. The wedding theme was particularly good, as it fitted well with the venue, the buffet that was part of the evening (with a wedding cake in the middle) and the fact that everyone had been able to dress up to fit in without going to the trouble of fancy dress. I didn't think I had enough "evidence" to actually accuse anyone but later regretted not even writing down my first guess as it wouldn't have been too far off the mark. The evening was great fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it and take part. I would definitely recommend Old, New, Borrowed, Blue as good for getting even reluctant or first-time mystery party-goers involved.

What a cracking nights entertainment! We don't get out much nowadays with 2 kids and this was exactly what we were looking for in a good night out. Lots of fun with tongue firmly in cheek and everyone kept guessing whodunnit right to the very end. Would definitely attend another!!!!!
