About us

Find out a little more about the MurderedforMoney cast and directing team.

Our history

MurderedforMoney was created in 2017 by Bridget Wilkinson to offer a unique fundraising opportunity to charities, hence our slightly unusual name Murdered for Money. 

Due to the popularity and demand for MurderedforMoney events our multi award-winning teams now provide private parties, corporate entertainment, public murder mystery weekends and dinner theatre as well as team building challenges in the beautiful New Forest. However, charity work remains core to our mission and each year we are delighted to raise thousands of pounds for our charity partners.
