Cluedunnit Murder Weekends
An entertaining, unusual & relaxing way for 25–100 people to spend a weekend. A chance to dress up, let your hair down, eat, drink, be merry – and get to grips with an intriguing crime story!
We have several different weekend plots to choose from. They usually run from Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime and also allow you enough free time to enjoy the luxurious surroundings.
Our professional actors will be with you from the start and their every word and action may be a clue to explaining the subsequent events. You can decide for yourself how much you get involved: play a character in the story or sit back and be entertained as the mystery unfolds.
Usual Timetable of Events
Your guests will receive their invitations and information pack to a ‘Cluedunnit Murder
’ in advance of the weekend. They can arrive at the chosen venue, usually a beautiful secluded country house hotel, sometime after 2.00pm and settle into their rooms. A drinks reception is arranged for 7.30pm where all the guests will meet the cast of professional actors who play the roles of the ‘suspects’ Clues will be dropped during the reception and the action continues during the splendid three course meal. The first body will be discovered sometime during the proceedings and the questioning begins. Our bumbling local bobby is usually on the scene quite quickly to help with investigations.
After a full English breakfast, the suspects can be questioned once again and further clues may be revealed. A surprise new suspect may even join the party. You will have time to review all the information gleaned so far and to inspect the police incident board. The late morning and afternoon are now yours to enjoy as you wish. Use the leisure facilities of the venue or explore the attractions of the local area. During Saturday afternoon we invite guests to join us for a singsong or parlour games if they so wish.
It is now time for the Gala Dinner when you are invited to ‘dress up’ to suit the theme of the weekend. More bodies are discovered before the night is out and the remaining suspects are put under pressure to reveal all. After a thorough summing up by our faithfully policeman you are invited to complete your ‘Whodunnit’ solution forms.
The denouement takes place and the Murderer (or Murderers) uncovered. Prizes are awarded, certificates distributed to all guests, and we all retire to the bar!
After a leisurely breakfast you are free to make your way home or why not extended your stay a little and enjoy a super Sunday Lunch.
Cluedunnit can organise a weekend murder for various size groups and we are also looking into organising 'General Public' Murder Weekends at a series of venues around the country. You will be able to book onto these events in much smaller groups. If you would like us to find you a 'Murder Mystery' weekend just for you please fill in our enquiry form and let us know the size of your party and which area of the country you would like to visit.
