If you are looking for an entertaining Murder Mystery event for a corporate or private occasion, then Big Foot Events can help! All Murder Mystery plots are fun yet sophisticated and delivered by professional actors throughout the UK.
Murder Mysteries are very flexible. They typically last for two to three hours and can be over lunch or dinner. There is also a half day outdoor format which does not require a meal at all, called ‘Out and About’ which takes place around a city or rural location and is ideal for a social or team building event.
A typical format involves five actors and although this can be extended to accommodate large groups of several hundred with a larger cast and sound production. We have arranged some incredible Murder Mystery Events involving a cast of 14 people and ran over a full weekend!
There are engaging party themes for every event, including Halloween and Christmas scripts. Bespoke scripts can also be written and tailored for Company Events, Themed Hotel Breaks and any genre. Parts can be written for your guests based on their interests which adds even more fun to your Murder Mystery experience!
Murder Mystery events are above all fun – an opportunity to play the detective while immersing yourself in a fascinating plot.
They also provide the ideal scenario for corporate entertainment and team-building, and appeal to a wider range of people than almost any other activity that can be chosen for the company get together!
Those of a less active disposition will not find solving a murder mystery too strenuous physically, a gentle Agatha Christie type mystery can be conducted in a very elegant venue between the courses of an excellent dinner.
A group looking for a much more active murder mystery event might prefer the challenge of finding the clues on a Treasure Hunt adventure, enjoying the fun of running around the murder scene!
A themed event is always a popular choice; who wouldn’t enjoy meeting James Bond at dinner – or dressing up for a 60’s night with a murderous twist?
Plots are as varied as the surroundings in which they are played out, and there are a wide range written to appeal to different audiences; some are more raucous and fun, while others are more sophisticated, so you can match the right plot to the audience!
Why not arrange for a bespoke murder mystery plot written specifically for your company or event by our specialist team of crime scriptwriters? Imagine a team building event with a script written around your own industry and competitors!
Professional actors play the parts in the plot and, depending on the theme and plot chosen, costumes can be very extravagant and really add to the atmosphere of the occasion.
Alternatively, for a very different experience, members of your group can choose to play the parts themselves! They will be given a few hours training beforehand so things go with a swing!
Virtual Murder Mystery Events Online
Virtual Murder Mystery Events are suitable for small groups of family and friends, or small parties, or larger groups, for example corporate events, clubs etc.
Using Zoom technology, guests will have the opportunity to interact with and question real actors who run the event, ensuring you have great fun! This is a much more engaging experience than simple ‘paper-based’ murder mysteries, because the actor is present and will host the one hour experience!
Available with one professional actor, or up to 5 live actors, depending on your requirements, and to ensure that each event is unique, you will have the chance to question and cross-examine, just as you would at a live event! You can also hear other the players, and watch their reactions on screen!
This Virtual Event is comfortable for up to 20 people on the screen. If your group is larger then we recommend that you nominate representatives to act as investigators. Others can watch the mystery unfold and work on the clues.
Suitable Attire for an Online Murder Mystery Event
If you fancy dressing up to the era of the Mystery, this online virtual adventure will be set in the 1920’s, so you can dig out an old flapper dress and perhaps a trilby hat! Of course if you’re more comfortable in your own clothes, that is fine too! You could re-adjust your Zoom background to an Art Deco Twenties feel!

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
