SOUTHAMPTON MURDER MYSTERY
Prepare for a gripping night of mystery and murder. You'll spend the evening on the edge-of-your-seat, as the plot thickens!
This is a brilliant evening option for fun team building events, an activity that will have your group trying too solve the mystery, while enjoying the company of colleagues and friends....but don't tell them too much because "what you say may be used as evidence against you"...Who will be revealed as the murderer?
The evening begins with pre-dinner drinks in the lounge where guests have their first chance to meet five larger than life characters. Suddenly, and without any notice, that jovial chap you have been joking with or perhaps the dotty maid who has been making such a mess of serving the drinks, will suddenly crash to the floor gasping for breath!
Just as the dead bodies begin to mount up the police officer in charge calls for help of teams to solve the case.
During dinner, the suspects circulate the room, where teams need to use their time wisely and interrogate them for answers.
Teams collect clues along their way and build up a case, 'who, where, when, how and why' are just some of the questions they'll need to answer. Finally, teams put their thoughts down on paper and present their case to everybody in the room, followed by the inspector's final thoughts on the murder. The event concludes with fun prizes for the winning teams.
