Free murder mystery fundraising game - Fête Accompli £59.99 £0.00


ête Accompli

The annual village fête of Market Wheaton is a popular local event, drawing crowds from every corner of the county.

Everyone in the village works together to make sure the day is a roaring success.

Those involved in the fête arrive early to set up stalls, submit their entries to the numerous competitions and generally get ready for the public to descend.

Today was no different. All was in readiness, the music playing over the loud speakers and the show ground about to be opened, when disaster struck!

Tracy Rounder was discovered dead at the back of her tent, and not just dead, but brutally murdered!

Her untimely demise can only be described as a catastrophe for those in charge of the day, a publicity nightmare; but, the fête simply must go on!

The Cast:

  • Maddy Lines (Chairwoman of the local W.I)
    As long standing chair woman of the W.I., Maddy Lines is a fearful organiser, as well as a domineering housewife who takes a keen interest in baking and gardening.

  • Guy Lines (Scout leader and husband of above)
    The cheerful, helpful and friendly Scout Master, Guy Lines, comes prepared for anything; anything that is, that Maddy tells him to do.

  • Ollie Day (Travel Agent)
    An enthusiastic travel agent and well versed on all holiday destinations Ollie Day is the man to speak to if you want to get away (quickly or otherwise).

  • May Day (First aid and lost children worker)
    A loving housewife, May looks after her family like a mother hen, and is the obvious choice to help out on the lost children and first aid stand.

  • Lee Sorsale (Estate Agent)
    Always on the look out for the hottest property in the area, estate agent Lee Sorsale is a ruthless businessman who always keeps an eye on the obituaries for future investment opportunities.

  • Rev. Neil Duprais (Anglican Minister)
    Responsible for the church flock as well as the leaky church roof, Rev Duprais is always fundraising, and willing to help out at any community event.

  • Winona Cases (Solicitor)
    The smartest, most sophisticated and stylish solicitor in town, Winona has never lost a court battle yet.

  • Detective Inspector Dick Lacey (Detective)
    Detective Inspector Dick Lacey is required only to provide the solution speech. He does no other acting during the event and is not referred to in the scripts or guest handouts.

Never run large group murder mystery games before? Then don't panic!

Hosting a large group murder mystery is time consuming, but with ample preparation and a good cast it is really quite simple and great fun!

In large group murder mystery games it is impossible to give everyone a part, instead the game involves “cast members” who are fully in the know and act out the mystery, while the guests act as detectives trying to solve the murder.

Large group murder mystery games come in several different formats, clue based, cast based, multi-room, single room, or a mixture of them all.

Fête Accompli has been primarily designed as a fundraising event for a local fête, show, or fair, but can be used equally well as a fun event for a large group.

It requires 7 cast who are fully in the know and who need to be available throughout the day to speak monologues and answer questions posed by the participants, and an optional inspector (who will read the solution at the end). The solution is also provided in plain text to place in a local newspaper if wished.

The murder mystery will require use of 7 stalls (which can be operational, you can simply co-locate the cast ”“ traders might be very willing to have this happen as their stalls will be sure to be looked at). You will also require one stall to act as the crime scene where the facilitators can explain how to participate, charge participants, give out booklets and collect in answer sheets.

Your participants play the role of detectives. You can have any number of detectives, your only limit is the time you have available. The murder occurs before the participants arrive and one of the stalls they will visit will be the crime scene.
