Murder Mysteries This Christmas

3rd November 2021

Guildford Shakespeare Company are now taking advance bookings for their popular Murder Mysteries as Christmas parties.

Last November and December the theatre company offered their fully interactive parties online to corporate clients who were not able to be celebrate the festive season together due to the imposed lockdown restrictions.

“A little gem that many companies would love to bring to their teams right now” Janine Chamberlin, Senior Director, LinkedIn UK

They proved so popular that GSC are making them available again for this year, with the added option of having them staged in-person as well.

The company have three stories to choose from: THE SHAKESPEARE SOLITAIRE (a classic 1920s whodunnit?); ALL THAT GLISTERS (scandal in 1980s Monaco); THE VERONA LOUNGE (sibling rivalry in the 1950s criminal underworld). All are fully interactive with a cast of 5 actors and last approximately 75-90 minutes.

The ONLINE option is perfect for businesses with national or international staff and can be booked at any time of the day or evening… or perhaps you have an extended family who live around the world? Whilst the IN-PERSON option means the mystery comes to you. In-person parties can be held at your offices, club house or a venue you’ve hired separately. They are flexible to work around a meal or drinks, or as a stand-alone event.

“The team thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was such a great escapism.”
