It may start with giggles and a little bit of awkwardness, but in no time at all everyone will be in the ‘murder zone’ and the competition will start heating up!
Holding your own murder party can be anything from a simple game of Cluedo to a full on fancy dress, scripted affair! What format will you choose? Will you go for a modern day or an historical setting and will it be ‘traditional’ or ‘technical’? The choice is endless, and we reckon you will be putting the next event in your diary before you have found out ‘who-dunit’ at your first party.

Push the boat out – Hire a Theatrical Group
If you have a special celebration or a large event coming up, you may be looking for something a little more ‘wow’. Why not hire a theatrical group to come to your venue and entertain you for the evening.
Browsing online will turn up options in your local area. The Penny Fairy can recommend a company called ‘Company Upfront‘, having attended a couple of their events. Utterly spectacular, and most importantly very entertaining!
Raid your cupboard
If all else fails…grab the old faithful, Cluedo. Sometimes the old classics are the best!
