A team of professional actors will meet and greet you and your guests for pre-dinner drinks in character. (They will remain in character for the full duration of the event).
During this time you will need to keep your wits about you and listen out for any incriminating conversations or actions. You and your guests will then go into dinner. Once your guests are settled the crime begins to unfold.
The lead character will then announce how the investigations will run. Physical clues are uncovered such as maps of the scene of the crime, incriminating letters, secret codes and Pathology reports.
You will be invited to identify and interrogate the suspects during the course of the dinner. This is where a lot of the fun happens: All the suspects are entertaining, even if they appear surly or bundles of fun or completely bizarre, remember they are a suspect.
Around coffee time you will be asked to name the suspect you believe to be the killer. There will then be a 'reveal' as the killer is unmasked. Prize certificates are awarded for the best and silliest conclusions.
Duration is around three hours with little disruption to food service.

Reviews of Katchakilla:
I would like to say on behalf of our department at IBM thank
you for a great night last Thursday, we all enjoyed ourselves very much and had
a great time. Most of us suffered on Friday and it was not a productive day in
the office which is often a good sign of a great night out, So again a great
big thanks to all the hard work you all put in. IBM
Just to let you know that our company had a great time last
Friday and would appreciate it if you could pass our thanks to the actors who
made it such an enjoyable evening! Oasis
Just wanted to say
thank you all so much for a great night out on Saturday. Your actresses were
fantastic and the whole evening was very enjoyable. Thanks again. Groupama
Thames river cruiser event for 200 people: “The theatrical team were absolutely brilliant and everyone really tried hard to get the right answer and when we got back to the hotel they were still debating it all for an hour! Our whole conference has been a massive success and the dinner on the boat and murder mystery added to the success.”
Murder mystery aboard a Bath canal boat: A good time was had by all, I hope we weren't too lively. I have received quite a few emails from people saying this was the best Christmas party they have ever been on! My thanks for your help and please pass on my thanks to all the actors.
Client review for Murder Mystery team building in Derby: Everything went great from our viewpoint. Victory can be claimed by a comment from an older member of the team who when first told of what we were planning to do was apathetic and didn't look forward to it. Relaxing in the lounge after the event he said if he saw anything like this come up again he'd definitely go to it! And the fact we were still debating the case the next day means everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!
