  • An Award Night Fright!

    Each year, actors and actresses, directors, scriptwriters and producers wait eagerly for their Silver Screen nominations and subsequent invitation to the Silver Screen Awards Festival. This year has been no exception.

    First up are the nominations for Best Director. However – it looks like nothing is going to go “all right on the night” Award Nominee Steven Speilsman is dead!

    The press is having a field day and there is no doubt in their mind that his death is the result of foul play – murder to be exact!

  • Robin and his Merry Murder!

    Robbing from the rich and giving to the poor may well have earned Robin a warm welcome among the local peasants, but his name is mud at the local castle and Sir Guy of Gisbourne has been given the task of apprehending him.

    Celebrating a recent triumph over the rich, Robin and his Merry Men have gathered together the villagers for an impromptu feast in the forest. Maid Marion and her lady in waiting are guests of honour.

    However, the feast comes to a rather abrupt halt when Little John arrives and announces the Sheriff of Nottingham is on route. Sir Guy of Gisbourne has been found dead in the forest and Robin is the only suspect.

  • Murder at the Manor

    Tucked away on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, Healing Manor is a fine example of a traditional estate dwelling. Over the last few months, both the manor and its grounds have been lovingly restored and improved to create a unique leisure experience.

    Unfortunately, this evening’s opening night has been thrown into disarray by the discovery of a dead body in the manor’s grounds; the current owner of Healing Manor, Mark Roundim.

    Rather than lose business, Miss Tracy Roundim, the daughter of the deceased, has put her grief to one side and decided to use the murder to the hotel’s advantage, offering all the guests the opportunity to take part in a real murder enquiry!

  • Murder at Great Spatsby

    The year is 1931, and here, at Great Spatsby Manor, one could be forgiven for thinking the Great Depression was already over.

    Ben Carrie-Deway, one of the nouveau riche, and owner of Great Spatsby, is well known for hosting lavish soirees, and tonight was no exception. With exquisite food and lavish surroundings the evening was passing pleasantly and uneventfully, at least it was until he was discovered dead in his study.

    Now all the guests are suspects and it’s up to the you to solve the crime!

  • Who Killed Cupid?

    The impending marriage of Joan Bollins, glamorous star of stage and screen to Valentine Cupid – a mere wedding singer, has been the talk of Hollywood for months.

    The wedding plans are extravagant – lavish – unprecedented, with the most romantic venue, fabulous flowers, and an exquisite menu, all of which was booked at very short notice to make sure the wedding happened on the most romantic date in the year – St. Valentine’s Day!

    With Joan Bollins firmly in control of the wedding the guests are ready for anything – anything that is except the groom arriving at the venue dead!

  • The Name of the Rose

    Mother’s Day in the small country village of Seven Acorns sees the culmination of a month long competition to find the “Best Village Mother”; an honour which carries the reward of having a new hybrid rose named after the winning nominee.

    The results are through and it is Felicity Good who has come out tops. Her family and friends, as well as a few choice local residents are awaiting her big moment in the grand marquee, but disaster strikes! Some dastardly person has cut every single last bloom from the new bushes!

    Who could have done such a thing?

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.  

A. Nonymous (council employee)

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.  

Alan Young (Personal Touch Mortgages)

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!!!!!
