Murder Mystery Evening in York : Information

Who's the murderer?

The Murder Mystery Evening is without a doubt one of the most popular Hen Weekend activities we have to offer in York. It's a classic whodunit with a Hen Party twist and its ideal for getting everyone together as the activity is fully interactive.

So its time to break away from the traditional Hen Do activities and the Murder Mystery Evening is the right solution for you. There are a couple of different scenarios you can choose from, one if a modern day scenario and the other is based during the 1920's.

The Murder Mystery Evening is fantastically performed by professional actors who will fill in some of the important roles, as will you and the rest of the girls. If anyone doesn't have a part they can just play a detective instead, the activity is fully immersive so no one will miss out on the fun.

No one knows who committed the murder, except for the murderer (duh!). You and the girls will need to put your detective skills to the test in order to unravel clues and solve the Murder Mystery.

The activity can be done at either day or night but we would recommend doing it at night so you can enjoy a delicious dinner while you enjoy the evening. Lets be honest, all that detective work will make anyone hungry.

The two scenarios you can choose from for the Murder Mystery Evening:

There are a couple of great scenarios for you to choose from and both of them have been very successful for us in the past. If you have any questions or small changes you'd like to make please let us know and we'll see if they can be done.

Hen Party: Murder Mystery - Are you and the girls ready for the luxury of the red carpet? The glitz and glamour of Oi! magazine awaits as you and the rest of the group are scheduled to be in the first edition of the new celebrity magazine, but it doesn't quite go to plan... someone has been murdered! And the murderer is in this room...

Death & The Maiden Voyage - Based in the 1920's on a chic ocean liner, you and the girls will be enjoying the maiden voyage of this new cruise ship when a photographer mysteriously goes missing... your task? To find who murdered them and bring them to justice!

Why book the Murder Mystery Evening for a Hen Party?

Firstly its completely different to all other Hen Party activities so if you fancy something outside of the traditional, more common activities then this is one for you. Also, its a great laugh with the girls, nothing quite compares to accusing your friend of murder, even if it is just for fun!

Kill two birds with one stone! There is a delicious dinner option available to you and its great at splitting up the evening and making the mystery play out for longer.

It's perfect for larger groups of 20 or more, although groups of 8 or more are welcome to book it. There are very few day time activities that can keep a group of 20 women entertained but the Murder Mystery Evening is certainly one of them. Everyone is able to participate as all of you will have a part to play in the mystery.

The activity can be held in your apartment, or a private room you have hired out elsewhere, meaning you could save yourself some money. However, if you don't have anything organised we can provide a function room in a popular venue.
