On Friday at one of Bath’s most popular mansion hotels, Ston Easton Park, the dinner dance guests had an escape from the modern day troubles and stepped back in time to a bygone era of opulence, decadence, and romance. This was achieved by one of the most popular themed nights around, a Murder Mystery.

The Historic city of Bath is able to offer a wide choice of entertainment and venues in which to host entertainment and special events. One such entertainment was presented by the capable hands of the ‘1st Call Murder Mystery’ team on the Friday at Ston Easton Park.

They transported guests back in time to the fabulous fifties, to the annual Shakin’ Sundae Hop of 1956. On such an occasion as this, with its promise of fun and excitement, it’s hard to believe that anyone could be attending with anything other than good intentions at heart. Unfortunately, this was most definitely not the case, before the dinner dance had concluded, two guests met a very grisly end. However, normality soon resorted and the doors were opened to welcome the guests back to a future 1st Call menu of murder!

Murder Mystery Parties for 35 Years!

Murder Pic 1Where Murder Mystery Parties Started…

The dastardly business of Murder Mystery parties has been going on for over 35 years and Murder By Design, one of the oldest exponents in this dark art have remained faithful to the original concept of setting the scene in an altogether more genteel era of the 1920’s and 30’s, such peaceful times, were they not?

Think again! The world was recovering from the Great War and the Fuhrer was already on the rise for a second go; it was a time of espionage, fast money, spurned lovers, gangsters and insurance fraudsters; all of these reasons have been ingeniously woven into the plots and storylines in order to baffle and bemuse all but the seasoned campaigner who has ever attempted to solve ‘whodunnit?’

…just about everything in between including ships, castles, tents and even a Cinema.

Murder Mystery events have been staged in grand country houses and modern high street hotels and just about everything in between including ships, castles, tents and even a Cinema. The public appetite for them has waxed and waned over the last three decades but currently the genre appears to be very much on the up with 1st Call Entertainment, a prominent agent of said events, purporting record enquiries from individuals and corporate bookers alike. There doesn’t appear to be any one geographical area either that favours murder mystery entertainment and most of the major cities London, Bristol, Birmingham and Cardiff continue showing strong interest.

We have entertained somewhere approaching 50,000 people throughout our time in the Murder Mystery business

How many people attend these events? Murder By Design estimate, they alone, have entertained somewhere murder-mystery-gun-knifeapproaching 50,000 people throughout their time in the business as the second longest established murder company in the world, so you would hope they have a fairly good idea what they are talking about. Individual events can range from as few as 12 to as many as 250 with the average being around 100 guests. ‘we often see the same faces turn up more than once and so we have to closely monitor the storylines that we perform at a venue to make sure that people get a new one when they come back to see us again’ commented the creative director from Murder By Design.

It will be 50 years next year since Agatha Christie made her own ‘exit stage right’, but the interest in stylish murders and the appeal to attend these quirky, highly entertaining dinners where you can mix fine dining, fine wine and a dead body or two by the time dessert arrives endures, and long may it continue.
