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.
On a day such as this, absolutely everything has to go right, and to do it properly, to make sure you have the most beautiful location, the most amazing dress, a fairy tale cake, fabulous food, sumptuous chocolate fountain, romantic car, and the best quality photographs, you need one man: Valentino Romance. The most popular and celebrated wedding planner the world has ever known.
Unfortunately for one happy couple, their dream come true has just come unravelled as Valentino has been discovered dead in the hotel manager’s office just before the nuptial celebrations begin!
Buck Stopsere (Hotel Manager)
As manager of the hotel, Buck keeps a watchful eye on everything and everyone to make sure the wedding passes off without a hitch.
Flora Bunda (Florist)
Known for her beautiful bouquets, simplistic table settings and fabulous floral displays Flora Bunda is truly the florist with the mostest and is used by Romance for every wedding.
Julian Sticks (Chef)
Highly strung and impossible to please, Julian runs his kitchen loudly and abrasively with a good hint of melodrama thrown in for good measure.
Coco Bean (Chocolatier)
With smooth complexion, fulsome lips and silky dark hair, Coco looks almost good enough to eat herself, but you might prefer to try her luxury chocolate fountain instead.
Roland Royce (Chauffeur)
In smart suit and cap Roland is a real gentleman and popular with all the brides as he helps them into and out of the back of his gleaming limo.
Len Scap (Photographer)
A high class photographer with outstanding skill in both traditional and more original wedding portraits, Len Scap is always behind his camera directing people where to look and how to smile.
Victoria Sandwich (Baker)
Multiple tiered cakes with ribbons and as much decoration as possible are Victoria’s speciality, but she is almost as frosty to get to know as her frosted fruit and flowers.
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!
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.
