Originally built 1879, Millfields is an exclusive residential hotel, set attractively in its own grounds, close to the commercial and retail centre of town.
Unfortunately, this evening, the normal composure of this very distinctive and fashionable hotel has been disturbed by the discovery of a dead customer in the hotel bar.
The customer turns out to be none other than Ivor Feelin – a renown ghost hunter, but, despite the hotel’s haunted status, he didn’t die of fright – so what did he die of?
Now the hotel staff and regulars are suspects and it’s up to the you to solve the crime!
Buck Stopsere (Hotel Manager)
As manager of the hotel, Buck is the first person everyone turns to when things go wrong, and today, things certainly went wrong!
Shona Seat (Conference Room Manager)
Smartly dressed and on the ball, Shona manages the conference room and does the odd stint behind the bar.
Paula Nother (Barmaid)
Paula is a typical blond and busty barmaid with a cheery attitude and a winning smile for all her regular customers
Louise Weight (Fitness Instructor)
With Louise’s fabulous figure and winning smile, it is hardly surprising gym membership is growing in popularity at Millfields.
Jimmy Locks (Used Car Salesman)
With camel hair coat and smart business suit, Jimmy cuts a very fine figure when he pulls up to the hotel in his latest flashy car.
Ben Diggin (Property Developer)
With an extensive portfolio of commercial and private property opportunities, Ben Diggin is the man to know when it comes to the potential of any bricks and mortar investment.
Hugh Ball (Snooker Hustler)
A regular customer of Millfields and a whiz on the snooker tables, Hugh loves to challenge anyone to a game, especially as he usually wins.
Detective Inspector Dick Lacey (Detective)
Detective Inspector Dick Lacey is the detective sent to solve the case. He provides the solution speech at the end of the evening.
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 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.
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.
7.15 Terrace Suite
7.40 Crime Scene

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.
Content that may be suitable for ages 13 and older.
