What is a “Compered Mystery Evening”? What is a “Compered Mystery Evening”?

A compered mystery evening is a murder mystery evening with a difference.

Rather than going out for a meal and being “entertained” by a drama team of suspects, instead YOU are the suspects!

Before you arrive at your venue you will be given an invitation stating who you are to be on that night and it is important to get into that role by arriving at the event suitably attired to become that person.

Compered mysteries are great fun for those who love to “ham it up”. When you arrive at the venue you will be given your character booklet for the night which will contain any lines you must deliver as well as information you know about other suspects and background information you will be revealing about yourself throughout the evening.

You will be led through the mystery by an inspector, who will be providing you with case information as the evening progresses as well as helping you all to get in the mood. At the end of the night the inspector will also deliver you a summary before you have to guess which of you did the dirty deed. Finally, at the end of the evening, the inspector will reveal all by providing the solution and arrest the guilty party! (Don’t worry – you’ll get them back!)

A typical evening runs like this:

7.30pm - Arrive at your venue. Have a drink at the bar and admire each other’s costumes. Depending on the mystery plot you might also be greeted by the “soon to be deceased”. Your character booklets will be provided as you arrive to give you time to “get in character”.

7.40pm - The murder is announced! (usually by a scream!)

7.45pm - The inspector arrives and announces the mystery. You will be asked to introduce yourselves.

7.55pm - You are escorted through to your dining table for your first course.

8.10pm - You will led into the first round of questions and answers.

8.35pm - The inspector will provide more information and you will be served by your main course.

8.50pm - You will led into the second round of questions and answers.

9. 15pm - The inspector will provide more information and you will be served by your dessert course.

9. 30pm - You will led into the third round of questions and answers.

9.45pm - You will be served with coffee. The inspector will provide a summary and ask you to provide any concluding statements before guessing “who did it”.

10.00pm - The solution is provided.
