refer to an information sheet when asked questions ,they don’t need to learn any lines.
In the Classic murder mystery, the guests just need to be themselves ,listen to what the actors are saying
and ask questions if and when they want, although if a guest wants to give themselves another
character name then that’s fine. The main objective is to have fun and dressing up can be a great way of adding to the enjoyment and atmosphere.

Dressing up is always optional although, if you do it’s great fun and can add to the atmosphere and chosen time period !

just need to simply fill in your details and email back to us. A few days later we would email you a 50% deposit invoice with the balance invoice being due the week before the event.

If preferred we can split the payment into four 25% instalments particularly if booking quite far in advance of your event
