What to expect at the Murder Mystery Christmas Party

As you enjoy a glass of Prosecco and all-inclusive drinks 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 the 3 courses of your Christmas dinner, 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 all-inclusive 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.

If you’d like some extra excitement, visit the casino tables where skilled professional croupiers are waiting with some free just-for-fun casino chips.

"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!"

FAQs

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.

After dinner, the private dining room remains all yours  — or you can join other guests at the after-party. There’s a DJ playing the hottest tunes from across the decades, and you can try your luck at the casino tables.

Are drinks included in the price?

Yes. Unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks are included with your ticket price. They’re served from 8pm until 12.30am.

If you’d like to upgrade, you can purchase 5 premium drinks tokens for £25 + VAT per person. Each token is redeemable for a glass of prosecco or single spirits with or without mixers.

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 £45 + 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 1st 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.

The venue

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.

Book your tickets for the hottest party in town

It’s easy. Just fill out the form and we’ll reply faster than you can say `jingle bells’. Well... almost as fast.
