Murder Mystery Dinner. Something along the lines of “Murder by Death” 

Enjoy a Murder Mystery Dinner with your employees, customers or friends. Depending on availability, the Murder Mystery Dinner can be booked at any time of the year. Choose between in English or German language. You can either select the location by yourself, or allow us to recommend a suitable venue. Do you remember the movie “Murder By Death” starring Alec Guinness and David Niven? In this 1976 comedy, the world’s most famous detectives are invited to a secluded castle. A murder takes place during dinner, and all are instantly caught up in solving the case. Of course, no one can leave the castle, as one of them might be the murderer. But what could possibly be his or her motive? And where and how did the murder take place? The outcome is a pleasant evening that can be enjoyed with all the senses and that one is unlikely to forget in a hurry. Who can correctly identify the murderer? Who will win the first price of the evening?

Please note! Plan your event now and reserve your preferred date!

NOW It’s official

Just 1% of the companies that apply for the SBS award achieve success and we are delighted to say that we made it. 

Our Murder Mystery Team were invited to travel to Birmingham to meet Dragon and highly successful entrepreneurs Theo Paphitis and receive our official certificate of being a Small Business Sunday winner… 

Running a business in a tough financial climate presents challenges but we do love a challenge and we are so very proud to have been recognised for the continued hard work of our team. Over the past years we have entertained thousands of people of all ages with our Murder Mystery Dinner shows. Each client is different and each are treated as such. That’s why we give each client the personal touch and as such we continue to receive amazing feedback and positive comments on our shows. 

The best accolade really is (as cliched as it sounds) the feedback from our guests. But a pat on the back (or a handshake from a dragon) is also very gratefully received. So when the opportunity arose to meet the man who terrifies many of those who dare to enter the Dragon’s lair, we took it. An early start was well worth it as we received our certificate and were treated to a great day of learning and sharing. 

It’s great to be awarded an accolade but with so much happening here it’s back to the business of Murder once more. 

Award Types of dinner style events

Perfect for all ages our events are fun, comedy murder events. A human Cludeo style experience. 

Choose from a bespoke (all guests take part as suspects) or Classic (up to 10 guests have a very small speaking character role). No one knows who commits the two murders of the night. We can even add a few personal details for a special occasion and for extra fun adapt the theme of your choice for the number of men and women in your party. 

Having it Large (20-50 guests): Hosted by two, three or four professional actors. Several of your guests play suspect parts while everyone plays detective. No one knows if they are the murderer.  

Size doesn’t matter (30-1000 guests): Hosted by up to six professional actors. Several of your guests play suspect parts while everyone plays detective. From 

Immersive: A flexible format which is a touch of theatre and a Whodunit. No need to have formal dining as the actors circulate the room and scenes are played out to everyone. Guests are encouraged to get involved as much or as little as they wish.

Gatsby Inspired – 1920s. Gangsters & Molls. Set at the launch of a big budget movie, you’ll meet gangsters, Hollywood movie moguls, good time girls and more. Be warned a Murderer is among you. A Studio 54 version of this theme is available for our classic format

Downton Abbey inspired – A traditional manor house theme. Lord and Lady Thornley-Cruttock invite you for champers & canapés.  Where has gardener Pete Spreading put his greenhouse keys? The murder of the Lord leads to twists, turns and very surprising revelations. We can adapt this theme to any era.

Death and the maiden voyage – 1920’s:  Join Captain Bob Upendown for a very special voyage. But it’s not going to be plain sailing. When the guest cabaret artist is murdered during the Welcome Aboard party everyone must turn detective to catch the killer. A Bugsy Malone version of this theme is available for our classic format

Murder on the ‘Homefront’ – 1940’s: In the normally sleepy village of Wimlington-on-Sea murder is afoot. You are invited to a charity gala to raise money for the war effort. But everything is not as it seems…

A night to remember (Immersive) – Film director Herbie Hinds’ movie is finally going to get made. But Herbie hasn’t paid the Mob and they’re not happy. And unhappy mafia means murder with a VERY spectacular finale. Modern Day, 1930s or 40s Film Noir and can be multi roomed if required.

Cheeky Blinders (Immersive)- Peaky Blinders inspired show – It’s Derby day. Billy Kimber & Polly Shelby welcome you to The Garrisonfor a few drinks & a flutter. Twin sisters Double TroubleLilly & Milly are singing for the first time. But when news that the Lee’s gang has sent someone to ruin the night things get heated. Who fired the gun shot? Who was the target? Who isn’t going to be leaving The Garrison alive?

Peter Kiss for Google Europe, Zurich
The team delivered an incredible evening for our teamevent. The team were incredibly organised and I felt so reassured they would deliver a memorable evening from the moment they got here. I have received such amazing feedback from all the attendees of our murder mystery and would thoroughly recommend working with ShowConnection again. The whole process to organise the event was incredibly straight forward and I can’t wait to plan the next one. Thank you so much.
