In our midsummer themed murder mystery, we’re introduced to the peaceful village of Midsummer Clubbing, the night before the judging of the ‘Best Kept Village’ awards.
Tonight is the annual pre-judging dinner, which will be attended by local developer Bill Dersyard, who is rumoured to be planning a large incinerator site right in the middle of all 4 villages which is likely to ruin any chances of winning.
Local residents are not happy, but will they resort to murder?!
In our hilarious Inheritance themed murder mystery, members of a prestigious local family have gathered to find out about recently discovered treasure in the grounds of their ancestral home, along with documents proving that the sale of the home 200 years ago was illegal.
The descendants believe that they could make a claim on the house… but who will end up in profit? To put a spanner in the works, the guest of honour is planning to bulldoze down the family home and turn it into a high class theme park…
In our classic Egyptian themed murder mystery, world famous Egyptologist Archie Ologist has recently laid his hands on a necklace belonging to Queen Nefertiti, which was plundered from the cursed tomb of Tutankhamen in 1923.
It has long been missing but resurfaced recently on the black market; some say the necklace is cursed, as all those who have touched it or are involved with anyone who has stolen it, have befallen a terrible death. Who will be next…?
It’s 1930 in Chicago and prohibition is in full swing, in one of our favourites, the Gangster themed murder mystery. Here tonight are a group of renegade gangsters, rivals of Al Capone’s and on the run from him and his gang. They have fled to England and are hiding out here; the big boss, Don Perry G’non arrives alongside his wife, Barbara Seville, but how long will it be before bullets start to fly?
The year is 1927, Prohibition is in full swing in Hollywood and ‘The Jazz Singer’, the first ‘talking picture’ has just been released, in this classic 1930s themed murder mystery.
The characters are here tonight in honour of Mr George Oswald West, a grand Hollywood producer who is about to start production of his first ‘talkie’ and all hope to be given a part in his new film. George is not popular, and likes to keep everyone guessing – but will this be his downfall?
In our French themed murder mystery set in the in the local village of Nether Regions, many attend a weekly French evening class, run by Etienne Lautrec and his wife Celine.
They’ve arranged for a visit by a prestigious French aristocrat Jean-Anne Tonique, who has come to help them with the finer points of their accents.
Jean-Anne is not popular, and when it is revealed that she plans to bulldoze through Nether Regions and build an enormous French Hypermarket, Restaurant and ‘Moulin Rouge’ type entertainment venue, the local residents all object…
In our Victorian themed murder mystery, we uncover the secrets behind Robin Emblind, manager at the local bank Grabbit & Run. It’s 1843 and Charles Dickens has just published his classic novel ‘A Christmas Carol’ – many are likening Robin to it’s main character, Scrooge!
Will his employees (including Orson Cart the Coachman and Ida Down the Governess) receive the Christmas bonus they’ve been expecting, or will there be an even bigger, more gruesome surprise ahead? Perhaps the unexpected arrival of Penny Less, the flower seller will shed some light…
In the village of Rippem Offem, the local Doctor, Claude Tabbits, is retiring. As well as meeting to celebrate this event, it is also the culmination of a year long village competition; a slightly eccentric and Halloween obsessed local landowner has pledged £100,000 to the villager who can catch a real live werewolf. There have been rumoured sightings around the area and so tonight is the perfect night to catch one. Claude’s guests greet him happily as they arrive at the party, little knowing that one of their lives is about to be ruined…
In the ghost version of our Halloween themed murder mystery trio, guests are attending the fancy dress party hosted by Gladys Friday to celebrate the launch of her new book ‘Ghostly Secrets’. A group of performers called ‘Raising the Dead’ who specialise in appearing on TV and in lavish stage shows all claim to have some sort of paranormal gift…it comes to light that nobody has actually seen Gladys for the last couple of weeks when she has been threatening to tell all in her new book… but will she turn up in an unexpected form?
A group of eminent archaeologists have come here to view the mummy of Pharaoh Nuff, rumoured to be wearing a cursed bejewelled necklace. The story goes that anyone who touches it dies a horrible death. The challenge is on to see if anyone can remove the necklace safely and take a cut of the profits, helped along by an ancient rhyme which states that the curse of the necklace could only be broken on Halloween…
What do our clients think about our themed parties?
Just going that extra mile makes for an unforgettable event
Thank you to you and your brilliant team for a really enjoyable afternoon’s sleuthing! Right from our initial meeting you really understood what we were looking for and expertly advised us how best to organise the event to get the most out of our team.
We really appreciated all the little details you wove into the storyline to make it relevant and interesting to our company. In addition, the awards list and the photos you took of the event really helped bond us all in the fun. It was a perfect team building exercise.
I highly recommend Charaderie's murder mystery for team building. The fully online and self-paced version we used was very effective and highly engaging. Everyone enjoyed the fact-finding structure and the strong competition that emerged between teams. I am sure the facilitated course would also bring in added engagement. Thank you!

“(the InterActivity) gave us a morning full of interactive fun and relaxed entertainment with a competitive, cognitive twist The perfect ice-breaker ahead of an afternoon of strategic planning.”
Thank you SO much for last night! You and the Charaderie crowd were absolutely brilliant. I had people say to me all evening that they’ve never been to a better book launch. It was fun from start to finish and kept everyone engaged and intrigued for hours - so much better than the usual standing around and feeling too awkward to speak to strangers!
Once again, thank you for making the event so special.
A really enjoyable session. A fun way to look at our strengths and weaknesses both individually and as a team – thank you!

Best team-building activity I’ve ever done. Can we do this every training session?
The exercise supported our team working together; it highlighted individual strengths that complemented each other. It was great to be able to take time out of the busy office and sit down together.
