Private murder mystery birthday party – venue arranged

If you’re looking for a night of thrills that is suitable for any number of guests, a venue arranged private murder mystery birthday party is perfect for you. Our Birthday Bonanza plot has been specifically written for birthday parties, with the birthday boy or girl taking centre stage as the star of the story, and guests dressing up to role play the suspects!

The Plot: Birthday Bonanza
Theme: 1920’s Gangsterland!

The story centres on Belle or Beau Bounty (played by the birthday boy or girl), owner of the internationally renowned Bounty’s Backparlour speakeasy to the stars, in downtown Chicago USA. It’s the height of prohibition and their friends, Amy Wino, Tina Turncoat & Brother Cupafeal, to name a few, are meeting for their birthday, when suddenly there’s a murder!

This is the murder mystery where you play the suspects and solve the crime. It’s down to you and your fellow guests to solve the mystery aided by a private investigator. One of you is the murderer- but whom? All will be revealed in a thrilling evening of intrigue!

Some of the suspects will be interrogated by the PI (played by one of our actors) during the event, and you’ll get the chance to question other guests, so try to keep your wits about you. There’s a prize for the super sleuth who discovers whodunnit!

As the night unfolds…

It’s your night, so you get to decide when to begin, but we recommend starting with a drinks reception at around 7pm. A murder mystery birthday party tends to last around 3 hours, giving you plenty of time to continue partying well into the night…

7:00pm Drinks reception:
Meet at reception for pre-dinner drinks, where you’ll receive your clue-packs and further character details. You will get to know who’s who – keep your wits about you so you don’t miss a clue!

7:45pm Dinner is served:
Each course is served and the comic plot unfolds. Your Private Investigator will guide you through, unveiling the story and its twists and turns. You might be questioned by the detective or reveal an important clue when questioned by a fellow guest during the main course! Word-games and Quizzes are introduced during the evening, which may reveal important clues as to whodunnit.

9:15pm You solve the crime:
Just before the dessert it’s your chance to be a super sleuth and solve the crime. Hand in your solution sheet for the final judging, and discover who the culprit is.

9:45pm Prizes awarded:
The star prize of one bottle of bubbly is awarded to the winning detective, and a booby prize to the hen who came up with the most absurd solution. But there’s still a chance to win with our limerick competition, free prize draw and best fancy dress!

10pm End of murder mystery event.
