Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Shared Christmas Party Details

Sherlock Holmes murder mystery – While you and your guests savor a delicious three-course Christmas dinner, a murder mystery unfolds. Stay sharp to unravel the mystery and claim the prize for the best detective. This interactive event invites guests to examine clues, listen to live suspect testimonies, and work in teams to uncover the murderer.

Private dining rooms – Due to the interactive nature of the murder mystery, your group will be allocated a private dining room. This allows for an intimate and private atmosphere while still enjoying the amazing shared entertainment after dinner.

Group sizes – A minimum of 15 people per group is required at this venue. From this number, 8 to 12 will play the part of suspects, while the others can act as detectives, taking notes during suspect testimonies, examining clues, and trying to uncover the murderer.

Format of the murder mystery – Before your Christmas party, selected guests will receive clues, secrets, and motives that make them murder suspects. On the day of the event, a detective will attend the venue to question the suspects. The plot unfolds as each guest discovers their part in the events that led to a murder, ultimately revealing that one of them is a killer!

    West End Events helped me to organise a 1920s themed murder mystery evening at a Bristol hotel. They were excellent with their communication and, in particular, chased the venue for me when they were a bit slow coming up with details, which really took some of the stress off. I would definitely use them again.

    I booked the Great Gatsby shared Christmas party for our small team this year through West End Events, and I’m so glad I did! The booking process was very easy and all the food and entertainment is taken care of for you – we just had to get our outfits sorted and turn up! They are very responsive to questions/messages and easy to work with. I very much recommend them! Comments about the event from my team include: It was a great night, the Gatsby Girls were excellent. Food excellent and tables well presented. It was lovely to have the casino which added to the fun of the evening. The location and venue were great…as were the flapper girls and entertainment. I really enjoyed the night. The band were superb and loved the gambling!

    We just had an amazing Christmas party in Leonardo Hotel Tower Bridge!!! Everything was great; the entertainment was just enough, the live band was performing at its best and the service was good and well organised. It was a shared experience with other companies which we prefer. Our company has 70 people and it is more fun to have a huge event where you can also meet other people. It felt like a proper Gala event :) The tables were well spaced out and it didn't feel squeezed or packed. Our sales manager Ryan Young was very helpful and he managed to get us some extra last minute tickets. The event management was efficient, always replied to all emails within a few minutes and they help me to find the event that was suitable for the budget, place and time. Loved it!!! Thank you West End Events ❤
