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!

    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..

    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.

    Fantastic event ! The private room for dinner with murder mystery was a great set up. Sherlock was excellent and not only put up with us but also batted back our drunken banter with humour. The after party bar and dancing was made extra fun with the addition of a photo booth. I strongly recommend this event for anyone planning a company do - or even just for friends. I will certainly be booking again.

    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.

    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.
