Mini Murder Mystery

from £795
Suitable for up to 40 guests
An interactive Murder Mystery experience featuring two Perfect Murder character actors

Our popular interactive event in which your guests play both suspects AND detectives! A fun, Agatha Christie-style murder mystery event that can be held at a venue of your choice, anywhere in the UK. Perfect entertainment for family parties, small corporate events or as a team-building activity.

Guests become characters and detectives in our specially written murder mystery format; hilarious, completely interactive and led by our professional team to ensure a successful Murder Mystery event. Our experienced actors will arrive and join you and your guests for the evening.


Our highly experienced professional character actors will meet and greet your guests, then set the scene and the Mini Murder Mystery will commence. They are on hand throughout the evening to ensure the laughs keep coming, assist you in finding clues and generally ensure everyone has a great time.

Mini Murder Mysteries are great fun for private parties as they allow everyone to be involved as much or as little as they wish. No acting skills are required…although Oscar-worthy performances are of course encouraged!

Guests will work in pairs for the evening, one as a character and one as a detective. Everyone is equally involved, and no-one is under any pressure to perform; working in pairs takes the strain off as you can share not only the performance, but also the detective work! 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.


How does it work?

Set the scene

At the start of the event, our actors lead a witty and interactive 30 minute 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.

Get into character

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.

Solve the crime

Perfect Murder’s actors are with you throughout, not only to help the party 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 one-by-one until the killer is revealed. We provide prizes for the best (and worst!) answer as part of our fully inclusive fee.
