  • Can Cook – Won’t Kill?

    Park Hall Restaurant is relaunching after an extensive rebrand.

    With a new head chef leading an entirely new catering team, all head hunted from other Michelin starred establishments across the continent, the restaurant has high hopes of redefining excellence and securing the highly coveted Three Michelin Stars.

    To celebrate the relaunch, celebrity guests from all over the world have been invited to experience its latest menu.  The catering staff are on “high alert” that culinary critics may well be in attendance on this opening night and with the possibility that a Michelin inspector may indeed also be in attendance on this first evening, everyone is looking out for the tell-tale signs of a man eating alone.

    However when Al Dente the new Restaurant Manager is found dead mid-way through the first sitting, all hopes of a good review fall flat, and the hunt for a Michelin inspector turns into a hunt for a murderer.  Who killed the gourmet and why?

  • Spy at the Wedding

    The traditional annual get together of St. Teresa’s Church in the bustling village of Tribley is about to begin. Unfortunately it looks likely to be ruined by rivalry among the clergy and church members. This culminates in the apparently accidental killing of a key member of the congregation… but was it an accident? And who, perhaps, was the intended victim? And which of them is the killer?

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.

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!!!!!
