Information for prospective partner venues

MurderedforMoney currently partners with theatres, hotels and restaurants across Southern UK to provide profitable events which raise the profile and reputation of venues and are great fun for guests.

Easter and Christmas 2018

Murder Mystery dinner events are extremely well supported and sell out very quickly. High rating crime dramas and film releases such as Sherlock and ‘Death on the Orient Express’ have driven the demand for ‘Murder Mysteries’ to an all-time high

With murder mystery dinner theatre tickets selling for between £30-95, (depending on the nature of the venue and the dining experience provided), significant profits can be achieved.

All our murder packages include the service of a dedicated event director, minimum of six actors, scripts, performing rights licences, personal props and prizes. We ask our partner venue to provide catering and manage bookings. Our standard hire charges for a murder mystery are extremely competitive. For information on our rates, please email

Our murder mystery dinners last approximately two and a half hours and are usually set around a meal. This can be a formal dinner, lunch, hog roast, buffet, BBQ, or an afternoon tea. Depending on the weather, mysteries can take place inside or outside.

Some of our murder mysteries call for fancy dress, others don’t, it is entirely up to you.

We have over 40 different themes to choose from, including: Cruise ship, Award Ceremony, Wedding Breakfast; 1920s; School reunion; Hollywood film launch; Monster Society AGM; Theatre rehearsal; Christmas and Agatha Christie (perfect for an afternoon tea) .In addition, we are now taking venue bookings for new plots  ‘Beware the Easter Bunny’, and ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Murder’.

As motives for murder usually include, blackmail, jealousy, adultery, drink, drugs and money, the script is likely to include reference to these areas, and tempers will inevitably rise, albeit it in a light hearted, entertaining way. As a rule, we would therefore not recommend murder mysteries to children below 14.

On the day of the event, actors would require a room/tent in which to change and rest between scenes. This room would need to contain a mirror, electricity socket (if possible) and seating.  Some plots require the actors to eat the meal with the guests.

In order to run a full-dress rehearsal prior to the event, myself and the cast would require access to the venue for the two and a half hours immediately prior to the event. start time. We are very used to working around people setting up tables etc, however we recommend that staff are made aware that the rehearsal may be quite loud.

If this has sparked your interest, you have any questions or would like to go ahead and book your murder mystery, please do not hesitate to contact me at

We are more than happy to visit the venue to view locations and discuss possibilities.
