Our budget Murder Mystery option, suitable for groups of up to twenty guests. Perfect entertainment for family parties, small corporate events and team-building activities.
Starting from just £595, we provide two experienced professional actors who will host an interactive murder mystery game in which your guests each play a character. Choose from one or our period-set plots, written and prepared in-house by our Murder Mystery specialists.
Each guest will assume a character for the duration of the event and everyone is equally involved. There are no lines to learn and fancy dress is optional, meaning the Mini Murder Mystery from Perfect Murder works just as well for a small corporate gathering as it does an informal family party.
At the start of the event, our actors lead a witty and interactive 30minute pre-dinner introduction, full of period details, clues and background to the plot. This works well over pre-dinner drinks and can take place in a separate room, bar, or at the dining table if necessary.
Just prior to dinner being served, guests will be issued their character details. These are handed out as full-colour Character Cards, and contain all the information that is required for the rest of the event.
Guests are invited to share the information about their character and question other characters in order to work out ‘whodunnit’? The murder mystery runs in real-time throughout dinner, meaning that clues AND MURDERS may occur at any point.
Perfect Murder’s actors are with you throughout, not only to help the part along and assist in finding and examining clues and evidence, but also to add a good helping of period-style comedy to proceedings.
Towards the end of the event, guests are invited to put forward their suggestion as to the guilty party and then, our actors will reveal the solution in a classic Agatha Christie-style denouement during which the characters are discounted on-by-one until the killer is revealed. We provide prizes for the best (and worst!) answer as part of our fully inclusive fee.

Where can this be held?
Perfect Murder events can be held in virtually any venue, throughout the UK and Europe. We perform hundreds of events each year in venues as diverse as exclusive-hire country houses, hotels, bars, restaurants and private homes. We have also performed on trains, aboard boats and at outdoor events and festivals. Because we work all over the UK and abroad, we are unable to offer assistance with venue-finding.
I represent a venue and we would like to host a Murder Mystery Event, can you help?
Yes, we certainly can. Perfect Murder provides entertainment to many hotels and venues. We usually recommend either our Classic Murder Mystery or Murder Mystery Weekend. Please get in touch for more details, we would love to get your on board!
