It’s the 80s. The time of shoulder pads, big hair and bright colours, new romantics, denim and skin tight jeans. So why not grab your digital wrist watches and your fluorescent socks, leave your Rubics cube behind on the shelf and join us for Murder at Club Tropicana.

Club Tropicana is where it’s at. Membership is strictly limited to those who are rich and famous, and once inside you’ll find yourself continually brushing shoulders with pop idols and celebrities. Club Tropicana has everything. Cocktails by the pool, sun, sea, sand and a nightclub to work on your dance moves.

Unfortunately this evening, the club also has a dead body on its hands. The pop idol celebrity – Rinse, who had been staying at the club on retreat from his hectic schedule of appearances.

With a club full of celebrities with artistic temperaments the question is… who killed him and why?

This is an audience participation night and we’ll be asking for volunteers to take part as our suspects.

If you fancy any of the roles below – tell the hotel when you book your tickets!

George Wham – With gelled hair, tight t-shirt and skin tight jeans George always has that designer look and can be quite narcissistic.
May Donner – Always in vogue with the latest fashion, May Donner is both stylish and sexy and dresses to show off her figure and fabulous dance routines.
Don Jon Bovi – Wearing enormous sunglasses and dressed entirely in denim, Don gives love a bad name and really lives life on a prayer.
Cheryl Fizz – Fond of bright colours and skirts that tear away, Cheryl is a bouncy girl with a lot of lipstick.
Simon Bon-Bon – A new romantic with big hair and a casual jacket look, Simon Bon-Bon is every girl’s heartthrob.
Kim Tame – Young, blond, tanned and busty – Kim has everything going for her, and makes the most of it whatever she wears!

We have a retro 80s menu to accompany the 80s night:

First course:

Prawn Cocktail
Chicken pate with melba toast

Main course:

Coq au Vin with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables
Slow cooked Beef with sauce au poivre and mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables
or Mushroom risotto


Mandarin Cheesecake
Black Forest Gateaux

This is an adult event - if you have children who'd like to attend, please call us so we can discuss the plot themes with you and ensure your children are mature enough to deal with them and you won't have any "awkward" moments the night!

While we know what our actors are likely to say, we do not have any idea what the public may say - and very often this leads to more mature themes coming out.

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.

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!!!!!
