For couples in love, a wedding is a dream come true, a magical day, and a chance to celebrate their love in a truly memorable way.
Indeed – this was the case for Miles and Sky, who requested the pleasure of your company for their evening reception.
Unfortunately the nuptial celebrations have gone badly wrong, and what was a wedding is now a wake.
Miles High has been murdered! The police have been summoned.
Sky High (Bride)
The blushing bride and now the distraught widow, Sky has found today a little overwhelming, and is not her usual calmly composed self. Even so, as an air stewardess at least she knows where the exits are when tonight gets too much!
Ed High (Best Man)
Twin brother of the recently deceased groom, Ed is just as gorgeous a hunk and what is more – is still an eligible bachelor!
Dee Spencer (Bridesmaid)
Slightly uncomfortable in heels and satin, Dee made a bee-line for the free bar as soon as her formal duties as bridesmaid were over.
Heath Roe (Usher)
The dashing co-pilot of the deceased, Heath is never short of female friends, and weddings are the perfect place to pull.
Amy High (Stepmother of the Groom)
A young, attractive and highly desirable lady, Amy positively encourages attention of any description, especially since her recent bereavement.
Matt Prints (Photographer)
Snap happy and fond of formal poses, Matt Prints was here to record the special day – and may yet make a killing selling his photographs to the local press!
Randy Crooner (Wedding Singer)
With a deep, sensual voice and swinging hips, Randy Crooner has all the melodies, moves and grooves needed for truly spectacular vocal entertainment.
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.

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!
