Engage in a Thrilling Night at the Murder Mystery Shared Christmas Party London

Step into a World of Intrigue at the Murder Mystery Shared Christmas Party 2024

Unleash your inner detective and get ready for a night of suspense and laughter! Grab your Sherlock Holmes deerstalker and prepare for a hilarious evening of sleuthing. It’s time for the Murder Mystery Christmas party.

Test your crime-solving skills over a delicious 3-course dinner with all-inclusive drinks at an exclusive central London hotel — then celebrate your sleuthing success on the dance floor.

You’ll encounter a fully-costumed ‘detective’ quizzing `the suspects’ between courses. Listen for clues and study the evidence because after dinner, you’ll take a guess at the culprit. Who did it? Why? And how?

As a murder mystery party guest, you can choose to play one of the suspects — so who knows? It could be you!

You’ll have your own private dining room at the DoubleTree by Hilton Tower of London. Enjoy the excellent transport links, or take it easy and book a room at the hotel.


What to Expect at the Murder Mystery Shared Christmas Party

Begin your evening with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and all-inclusive drinks in a private dining room, as our fully-costumed detective breaks the dramatic news: there’s been a murder, and the killer is sitting at your table. Which one of you is guilty?

Ahead of the party, some of you will have volunteered as suspects. We’ll have already supplied some info — their character, a dastardly motive, an alibi, and a plot-twisting secret.

Between courses, our brilliant detective questions the suspects. Listen carefully because there’s a prize if you uncover the culprit. The detective reveals the murderer over coffee.

The all-inclusive drinks are flowing, dinner has been enjoyed, and a murder has been solved. Relax and chat in your dining room… or (hey, it’s Christmas!) take to the dance floor.

If you fancy trying your luck at Blackjack or roulette, the casino tables are open, complete with professional croupiers.

    What a fantastic Christmas Party, from the time we got to the venue (Hilton Hotel Paddington) we were looked after by the host, the food was amazing great starter and hot main with a lovely sweet. The service at the table was really good and they were attentive for our drinks and cleaning up. The band played some great songs and overall everyone had a fantastic time. Well done West End Events for organising such a great Christmas Party! Thanks and Merry Christmas..

    West End Events helped us throw an amazing 'Roaring Twenties' party. The decorations and props created a great first impression upon arrival, and an atmosphere of fun and revelry that helped us celebrate. They also handled the band, the casino tables, a selfie photo booth (and props), and sent professional 'flappers' for a meet and greet, dance demonstration and dance lesson. A wonderful organisation to work with.

    Absolutely fantastic night organised by West End Events. The communication before the evening was outstanding, with Ryan being such a help and support. On the evening the hotel was great, the food amazing and all the James Bond Themes worked so well with our company. Even though the hotel changed the set up that we were expecting , someone from the Events team were on hand to help and to make sure everything went smoothly. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending West End Events and will definitely be using them again in the future.

    The Hollywood Casino-themed party by West End Events was fantastic overall. The atmosphere was glamorous, the food was good, and the disco was lively. However, the live entertainment during the meal could have been better. Still, it was an enjoyable event and I would recommend West End Events for their organised and fun gatherings.
