Murder Mystery
Christmas Party

Murder, mystery, intrigue… and lots of laughing

Grab your Sherlock Holmes deerstalker and prepare for a hilarious evening of sleuthing. It’s time for the Murder Mystery Christmas party.

Test your crime-solving skills over a delicious 3-course dinner at an exclusive London Hotel — then celebrate your sleuthing success on the dance floor.

There’s a fully-costumed ‘detective’ moving things along and quizzing `the suspects’ between courses. Watch out for clues because after dinner, you’ll take a guess at the culprit. Who did it? Why? And how?

As a murder mystery party guest, you can choose to play one of the suspects — so who knows? It could be you!

You’ll have your own private dining room at the Leonardo Royal in St Paul’s. Take advantage of the excellent transport links, or take it easy and book a room at the hotel.

What to expect at the Murder Mystery Christmas Party

As you enjoy a complimentary glass of Prosecco in a private dining room, our fully-costumed detective enters to break the dramatic news.

There’s been a murder and the killer is sitting at your table. Which one of you is guilty?

Ahead of the party, some of you will have volunteered as suspects. We’ll have already supplied some info — their character, a dastardly motive, an alibi and a plot-twisting secret.

Between courses, our brilliant detective questions the suspects. Listen carefully because there’s a prize if you uncover the culprit. The detective reveals the murderer over coffee.

The drinks are flowing, dinner has been enjoyed and a murder has been solved. Relax and chat in your dining room… or (hey, it’s Christmas!) take to the dance floor.

The on-site nightclub is now open, and it’s reserved exclusively for our murder mystery guests. If you’d like some extra sparkle, visit the glitter bar where professional face painters are ready to work their shimmering magic.

And don’t forget your unlimited trips to the photo booth. Those photos will remind you of the best Christmas party choice you’ve ever made.

"We booked the Sherlock Holmes murder mystery with West End Events and were super happy with it. We had quite a few extra requests and changes which all went ahead smoothly, and both the actors and organizers were super friendly and helpful even on the day. I can't recommend it enough for your Christmas party!"

Do you have any questions? We’ve answered some of the most common questions below. If yours isn’t there, don’t worry. Just call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll provide the answer.

About the event

Which group size can you cater for?

We can accommodate virtually any group size. There are various dining rooms available so your party can be as few as 15, or as large as 128.

Who plays the suspects?

Ahead of the event, we’ll ask between 8 and 12 of you to volunteer as `suspects’. We’ll send them a short information sheet with their character, motive, an alibi and a fact which only they know.

If you don’t fancy being a suspect yourself, don’t worry. There’s plenty of sleuthing fun to be had.

Is this a shared or exclusive event?

It’s both. Your 3-course dinner and murder mystery entertainment takes place in your own private dining room and terrace bar.

After dinner, the private dining room remains yours. The nightclub is reserved for your party, and for other murder mystery guests who have been dining in their own private rooms.

Are drinks included in the price?

Yes. You’ll be given a glass of Prosecco as you arrive, and there are bottles of wine on each table — enough for half a bottle each. You can purchase additional drinks at the terrace bar.

If you’d like to receive a discount on drinks, ask us for a wristband or redeemable token offer ahead of time.

  • £40 + VAT — 4½ hours of unlimited beer, wine or soft drinks
  • £18 + VAT — 3 standard tokens redeemable for beer, wine or soft drinks
  • £30 + VAT — 5 standard tokens redeemable for beer, wine or soft drinks
  • £24 + VAT — 3 premium tokens redeemable for spirits, beer, wine or soft drinks
  • £40 + VAT — 5 premium tokens redeemable for spirits, beer, wine or soft drinks

Is there a dress code?

No. We want you to have a good time, so you can wear whatever you want — although many of our murder mystery guests love dressing up for this event.

Before the evening, the `suspects’ will have received key information about their character. If they like, they can dress the part.

Detectives can be `undercover’ in party clothes, or you can go full Sherlock Holmes with a deerstalker hat, magnifying glass and classic suit.

The menu

Will the hotel cater for different dietary requirements?

Yes they will. Once you’ve booked, we’ll send you a function sheet. Use this to let us know the names and dietary requirements of any guests. We’ll inform the chef so that each person is catered for appropriately.

The only exception to this is Kosher food. This cannot be prepared at the hotel, it comes via a separate caterer. Call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll talk you through it.

Booking and admin

How much is the deposit? And when is it due?

To secure your booking, we’ll need a deposit of £35 + VAT per guest. The balance will be due 6 weeks (42 days) before the event.

Can I add additional guests later?

We’ll be as flexible as possible. Please let us know about any changes before 3rd November and we’ll do our best to accommodate them. Provided there is availability, we can add to your booking — although please bear in mind, we can’t guarantee this.

If you want to add guests, contact us on 020 7183 3821 or email [email protected]. We’ll let you straight away if there’s availability. If there’s enough space for additional guests, full payment will be required in order to secure the booking.

Is there an age requirement?

To comply with licensing laws, your guests will need to be over 18 years of age at the time of the event.

The venue

Is there parking at the venue?

On-street parking is not available at the Royal Leonardo at St Paul’s. However, there are 233 car parking spaces a 4-minute walk away at Baynard House Car Park, Queen Victoria Street, EC4V 4BQ. For more parking locations, visit Parkopedia.

Is there disabled access?

All our hotels have disabled access.

Is there a cloakroom? Will I be able to leave my suitcase there?

Yes, the cloakrooms at all our party locations are free. If you have larger luggage items, the hotel also has a free concierge service. Leave your luggage with them and they’ll look after it securely while you’re at the event.

Can I stay at the hotel?

Yes, although you will need to arrange the booking. Unfortunately, we’re unable to do this for you. We’ve provided a link to the hotel website below:
