Weddings can be murder… let us help you out!

Whether you’re the bride or groom, the father of the bride, the best man or the matron of honour, or indeed any of the parents who want to help out – there’s so much to think about when it comes to a wedding.

The biggest problem is often the seating plan, who gets on with who, and what you’re going to do with all those people who just don’t know anyone else on the big day!

Added to all that, there’s the whole “What do to with the family the night before?” Not to mention “What are all the guests going to do while the wedding photos are going on?”  Which let’s face it, can get rather boring for all concerned.

Fortunately this is where we come in.

We’ve worked with a variety of wedding parties over the years providing murder mystery kits they can run themselves or full event management.

While we usually suggest it’s not a good idea to murder the mother-in-law as part of the best man’s speech, we are here to help you whatever your ideas.

The sorts of things we’ve done in the past include:

  • A themed murder mystery evening the night before so all the relatives on both sides of the family can get to know each other without struggling for small talk (thus taking the pressure off the bridge and groom and the two parents).
  • DIY or fully event managed murder mystery evenings for the Hen and Stag parties.
  • Custom written getting to know you micro mysteries which will take the length of the time it takes the photos to sort out, and include some family references to give everyone a giggle.
  • Custom written mini murder mystery involving the bridal party as suspects to lighten up the wedding reception instead of the speeches. (A great idea for those who’ve lost someone special in their lives, whose absence would be more noticeable and sorely missed during the reception’s standard speech formula.)
  • A custom written murder mystery to break the ice as everyone arrives at the wedding venue.
  • A small mystery to keep the kids entertained during the meal.
  • When you’re getting married, often the last thing you want to think about is managing the small talk.  So let us help you out with our ice breaking mysteries.

You tell us what you need, and we’ll tell you what’s possible.  So far we’ve not had a request we can’t handle!

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!!!!!
