More than Murder 

Immersive Experiences- A truly unique event. Designed for groups of 20+ our professional performers tell a story throughout the night. As the audience arrives they will greet them & mingle until short scenes make everyone stop in their tracks. After this the audience will see & hear different parts of the story as the actors move around the room. Guests are encouraged to find out as much as possible.

Your guests receive information in advance & on arrival the experience begins. Short scenes are performed to all after which the fully costumed professional performers are available for questioning and will banter with your guests (and pose for pictures). We also include cabaret and a sing-a-long to get your audience's toes tapping and ready to get up and dance the night away. 

A flexible format means flexible format you decide how long you want the experience to last.  We will then draw up a timetable for you.

We provide your guests with character profiles, clues and questions to ask the actors and all themes end in a VERY spectacular finale.
