Murder Mystery Dinners

Peaky Blinders Nottingham 001.jpg

A classic & popular murder mystery dinner format. While the comedy & drama unfolds everyone decides who committed the dastardly deeds.

Blackwatch Entertainment's professional actors set the scene. Our interactive shows provide the chance for some guests to play suspects (but no one knows Whodunit).  All our shows are professionally written so you are guaranteed a great time. We bring everything with us. All you need to worry about is having fun - and staying alive.

We work across the whole of the UK (and abroad). No venue? No problem. We can come to your home or suggest a perfect venue.

Whether it's a small dinner party or a large corporate dinner, events are run by experienced professional actors.

Types of dinner style events

Perfect for all ages our events are fun, comedy murder mysteries (we don't provide the food but can suggest catering options & venues). Timings are flexible from 2 - 4 hours.

Bespoke (8-28): All guests adopt a suspect pseudonym for the night and the event is created around the number of men and women attending. We can even add a few personal details for a special occasion.

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

Classic Plus (30-100 guests): Hosted by up to six professional actors. Several of your guests play suspect parts while everyone plays detective. 

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. 

Prices start at under £400 for an entire evening of entertainment. Contact us for a quote.
