Virtual Murder Mysteries

At the moment, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we know you can’t  come out and see our theatre productions or join us in the New Forest for a team building challenge. However, this doesn’t mean that the fun has to stop, it just means that we have gone virtual! with our actors performing from their homes. With private parties, team building events and and public challenges available, we have something for everyone and every situation. 


Private parties and team challenges

We have three different formats available for your private party or team building challenge

  • Exclusive performance
  • Interrogation Event 
  • Hosted Event


Exclusive performance

As you are not able to go to the theatre, so we will bring it you. Our professional acting team and  event host will join you and your guests on Zoom for a virtual performance of one of our award winning productions. Lasting approximately three hours, this is our luxury package, featuring a live theatrical performance from the professional cast, clues, interrogation of suspects and prizes.  (The timing of this event can be adjusted to fit around a meal). Perfect for a very special birthday, anniversary or wedding celebration. Please call for a quote.

Interrogation event

Our popular interrogation parties, involve video footage and clues relating to the crime being sent out to your guests in advance of the event. This could be over the three days prior to the event, or, if you prefer, at regular intervals during the day of the event. Guests can work individually or in teams to consider the clues. Then at an agreed time, you and your guests will join the suspects and Inspector Corner of the Yard live, via Zoom for the interrogation. Will your questioning skills help you catch the killer?  With a prize for the winner and the option to stay on zoom after the event to chat and catch up. Perfect for parties, team challenges and rewards.

Hosted event

For those looking for something on a smaller budget, we are delighted to offer our hosted parties. These events follow the same format as an interrogation event, and take place via Zoom. However the live interrogation of suspects is replaced by Inspector Corner inviting your guests to watch a pre-recorded interrogation of the suspects. Play individually or in teams to consider the clues and discuss the suspects answers before submitting your solution. With a prize for the winner, all will be revealed. With a prize for the winner and the option to stay on zoom after the event to chat and catch up. Perfect for parties, team challenges and rewards. 

Our monthly public events

Once a month we host a public virtual murder mystery challenge with a chance to win either a £50 e-voucher or luxury hamper. Lasting between 4 and 7 days, these events are immensely popular, bringing families and friends together from across the country and the globe. 

Welcome to the five star Ratz Hotel in London’s Mayfair, where tradition and understated elegance go hand in hand. Unfortunately when the new manager announces his new rather unusual renovation plans, not all the guests and staff are happy. In fact some of them are furious!. Secrets, lies, celebrity guests, hidden histories, revenge, and unrequited love all feature with hilarious but deadly consequences.

Starting on the 27th August 2020, finishing 31st August 2020. Recommended for ages 12+  £9 per household + voluntary donation to Minstead Trust. To book visit https://bit.ly/TheRatzHotel  Play at home or away at a time convenient to you. All you need is an internet connection.
