Murder on the Railway

  • Have you got the super-sleuth skills to find and solve the clues?
  • The detective persona to interrogate the suspects?
  • The judge and jury deliberation to identify the killer?

Then our Murder Mystery evenings are the perfect way to enjoy an evening with friends, a delightful bottle of wine and a savoury snack basket (snack basket and bottle of wine served per table of 2).

What can you expect from all our Murder Mysteries?

A fully interactive and immersive evening where you will:

  • have an opportunity to investigate the murder scene
  • be given evidence to review and decipher
  • have the opportunity to interrogate each suspect at your table.

The evening is fully scripted (apart from the improvisation element depending on what questions are asked): nothing is left to chance.

Every look, line, movement and positioning is precise, to give the outcome we desire.

Our team of writers and actors work tirelessly on their characters, back story and preparation for questions. In fact, it takes more time to prepare for that than it does for these fabulous actors to be script down! 

There can be only one winning team. So it is important to write down as many clues about each suspect and in general that you uncover. The team with the most clues will be victorious.
