You should be purchasing our scripts on the commercial license if you are reselling your event services to other customers/clients; or running your event “for profit”.
This includes groups who are “not for profit” but are selling their services to another organisation who will will then be selling the event at a profit to them. e.g. an amateur theatre who asks for a donation only when running a murder mystery event for a hotel. The hotel is selling a murder mystery to their customers. Therefore, the theatre group should be purchasing the event on the Commercial License and bill the hotel for this accordingly.
These sorts of uses are covered by the commercial license:
- You are selling your services to run a murder mystery for a hotel/restaurant/company/other paying customer e.g. private party.
- You are a guest house, hotel or other entertainment venue e.g. public house, and are charging ticket prices to customers to attend the murder mystery event.
- You are a team building company and a murder mystery is forming part of the services you are providing to the client ( as you will have charged them indirectly for the experience).
- You are a not for profit agency who is contracted in by a hotel / restaurant /company to host an event they are running for profit.
If you fit into any of the above categories then you should be shopping on this site as a commercial customer.
SINGLE USE IN SINGLE VENUES is permitted on the commercial licenses. If you intend to use the same event more than once, you should contact us to obtain our rates for a multi-use licenses in a single venue – this will be calculated depending on guest numbers expected and the number of repeats envisaged.
MULTIPLE USE IN MULTIPLE VENUES is NOT permitted on any of our commercial licenses. If you intend to resell your services on a regular basis then we would suggest you speak to us about becoming a Red Herring Games Franchise holder, which permits you to run scripts in multiple venues and also gives you access to other formats and different services at more competitive rates then our commercial licenses.
Reselling games is NOT permitted under any circumstances.
Each purchase on this website will give you everything you need in printed format “ready to use”. If you need anything customising to your venue please contact us before check out to see what’s possible.
If you are buying our commercial license in order to resell your services then we would suggest your minimum hire fees should be the same as ours. Details of our pricing rates for events is available on request.
If after buying the kit, you decide you don’t want the hassle of hosting your own event after all, then you can switch to our event management service and we will discount the event by the rate you have paid for the commercial license, so long as the pack we have sent you is in pristine condition when it is returned.
