What is a Murder Mystery Party?

There are a number of variations on a theme, but in essence a crime (typically, as the name suggests, a gruesome murder!) will have occured at some stage in the past, or will occur in front of your very eyes and you need to solve it! Throughout the party various clues will be revealed which, when put together, will point the finger fimrly in the direction of the culprit. A prize is normally awarded to the the most accurate sleuth, or, if non-hens will be in attendance too, why not club together to put in for a prize just for the top bachelorette detective!





Where Can We Do It?

Various boxed games and packs are available from the high street and online and these make for a great home-based murder mystery hen party. Accompanied by outfits, party food and copious amounts of alcohol, they require each hen to take on a specific role throughout the night, with one of them ultimately playing the role of the murderer!

Alternatively, murder mystery actors and actresses tour the country regularly and can be found at local hotels and manor houses. These will save you the hassle of acting out the roles yourselves and can be great fun and are highly interactive too.

Murder mystery plays at local theatres are also available. These are more of a performance than an interactive experience, but accompanied with a 3 course meal and wine make for a more sophisticated form of the murder mystery hen party.

Finally, for the ultimate murder mystery hen party experience, full-on murder mystery weekends can be sought out. Involving an overnight stay, the crimes take place over two days but have plenty of breaks in-between 'scenes' for a relax and unwind. If sleuthing is your thing, then you probably won't want to look elsewhere!

Who is it Suitable For?

Although the name suggests they are more of an adult experience, they are strangley normally suitable for hens of all ages! Be sure to double check before hand, but you should find that they are more of a farcical bit of fun  than a night of gruesome terror!

When Does it Take Place?

For maximum effect, hold (or attend) your murder mystery hen party when the sun goes down!


How Much Will it Cost?

DIY murder mytery parties are inexpensive and ideal for hens on a budget. Those with actors involved will bump up to cost to roughly that of an expensive meal. Where an overnight stay is involved, costs will jump up to over three figures.
