How It Works ....

At Moonstone Murder Mysteries, we transform any event into an engaging and exciting whodunit. No matter the occasion, our murder mysteries are perfect to keep your guests entertained and captivated.

Embarking on a murder mystery adventure with us is as thrilling as it is straightforward. We’ve crafted an exhilarating yet easy-to-follow process that ensures your experience from booking to solving the crime is seamless and unforgettable. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Choose Your Adventure

Our repertoire is brimming with a variety of unique and enthralling murder mystery narratives. From a dazzling 1930’s secret supper club, an isolated Manor house in the misty hills of Dartmoor, a Luxury 3-Day Ferry to the Isle of Wight, all the way to Children’s Television studio! We have something for every mystery aficionado. Browse through our extensive collection of themes and choose the one that piques your interest the most.

Step 2: Select Your Date and Venue

Once you’ve zeroed in on your preferred narrative, the next step is to choose a date that suits you and your guests. We can come to any venue of your choosing for private events,   from a private dining room in a restaurant across London, a more intimate gathering at a personal venue or even directly at the office for Team Building events. Either way, we promise an experience steeped in mystery and excitement.

PLEASE NOTE – We do not have a venue for you to come to. You choose your venue (subject to a few requirements) and we come to you!

Step 3: Get Ready to Dive In

Before the event, we provide you with all the necessary information you’ll need, with a clear breakdown on how the event runs, theming ideas for decor and dress up and liaising with any booked venue to ensure you can sit back and enjoy the case.

Step 4: The Big Day

On the day of the event, arrive at the chosen venue and step into a world of suspense and intrigue. You and your guests will be greeted by our professional actors who will guide you through the unfolding narrative. As you settle into the atmospheric setting, you’ll find yourself becoming a part of an intriguing and engaging plot-line where every detail is carefully crafted to transport you into the mystery, guessing every twist and turn until the very end. 

Step 5: Let the Investigation Begin

As the plot thickens, you’ll find clues, interrogate suspects, and work together with other participants to unravel the mystery that lies at the heart of the event. Remember everyone on the suspect line-up has a motive at play, and it’s up to you to use your detective skills to piece together the information and crack the case.

Step 6: The Big Reveal

As the evening draws to a close, your Detective team will gather to present their findings and theories. The climax reaches a fever pitch as the true culprit is revealed. Whether you manage to solve the crime or not, the event promises laughter, camaraderie, and a thrilling adventure that you’ll remember for years to come.

Step 7: Capture the Memories

Before you leave, make sure to capture the moments. Whether it’s a group photo of your detective team or a shot with the enigmatic characters from the storyline, these photos will serve as a cherished memory of an evening filled with fun and mystery. (If you would like Photos after the investigation with the cast, please let us know in advance)

Step 8: Feedback and Future Adventures

We value your feedback immensely. After the event, we encourage you to share your experience with us. Your insights help us refine our offerings and craft even more engaging narratives for future adventures. Also, don’t forget to keep an eye out for new and exciting murder mystery experiences coming your way.

8. How it Works Bottom image

When it comes to Murder Mysteries, every company has their own style, format and plot structure, the only thing we have in common is somebody has been up to no good! We can work around a dinner, an event, special occasion or in any Corporate setting. We will work with you ahead of your day to agree how to do this best. 

The majority of events are booked by individuals, where we travel to your venue of choice, but we are booked by numerous venue owners, wanting to create an attractive and unique ticketed event. Many London venues have given us our own residencies. But we equally enjoy making a 40th birthday that bit more special and memorable.  

We agree an all-in fee upfront, no surprises, no extras, you name the place and we bring the case. You’ll be very surprised how affordable one of our top rated experiences can be.  Don’t just take our word for it, with over 100 5* Reviews we must be doing something right!

For a Moonstone Theatre Murder Mystery, our formula is the same for the majority of our plot-lines and has been designed to work around the other elements of your event such as service times and any additional entertainment you may have. The plot is played out through a series of scenes between performers and in-between the scenes, our performers will interact with your guests to answer any of their questions or throw in necessary clues or red herrings to help your guests along the way. The shows are designed to be flexible, and can work around any hospitality you have planned too. 

Generally, our performances take around 2 1/2- 3 hours to play out with breaks, although this depends on the number of guests, your hospitality schedule, and how inquisitive your Detective team are. We will work alongside you in regards to timings and you will be able to update us throughout the evening should any circumstances change. Why not come try us out first by coming to an upcoming public show

Once all the scenes have been played out, by this point you and your guests will have your suspicions but may have more to ask to fit the last piece of the puzzle. Our inspector will give your guests the opportunity to question all of our suspects as a whole room to help everyone pick up some last minute clues (although our suspect’s have been known to lie on these occasions!) 

After this the inspector will take everyone’s conclusions about who they believe is guilty and their motive behind the murder. Then they will begin to unravel the evenings events and finally reveal our devious killer.

*Please note, we do not provide a venue for private performances, both the venue and hospitality must be booked separately but we can travel to most venues.
