Our vision: A word or two from Richard Hazelgrove

When I first encountered the concept of murder mystery dinners in 1992 I never for a moment believed that this could become a full time career. But having written a few plots for home parties for friends and relations it became clear that I might be on to something!

So. How to take things forward? Well I thought about what I might like to happen on a murder mystery evening and went on from there.

Over the next 24 years I have finely honed and developed the product that we see today. A product of years of highs, lows and a great deal of joy and laughter.

Over these years I have met some wonderful people. Actors, staff at venues and of course many lovely clients. Lets raise a glass to you all and look forward to many happy years of murder ahead!
