Not all our events are quite this merciless, but here’s what we did when Marina’s hens said, “We’d like something inspired by The Blair Witch Project. And we don’t want to sleep for a week afterwards.”

what we do

Smoke & Mirrors create fully interactive murder mystery events for people who enjoy unforgettable nights out. Our background is professional film, theatre, and television; our simple aim is to offer unbeatable entertainment. We stage murder mysteries wherever and whenever you want them, and guarantee that they’ll be intelligent, action-packed, and great fun. For highlights of one of our more riotous outings, simply click here.

how we do it

All our events feature a full cast of brilliant professional actors. They’ll play out a series of dramatic scenes to advance the plot, as well as sitting with you, talking to you, and allowing you interrogate them. Then there’ll be a murder (perhaps more than one), and it’ll be up to you to work who did it, why they did it, and what they did it with. For an outline of a typical evening event, please click here.

where we do it

Smoke & Mirrors stage murder mysteries anywhere and everywhere. To date, we’ve worked in country houses, hotels, pubs, windmills, castles, boats, campsites, Paris, and people’s own homes. We’re always happy to help find the perfect venue, and can put you in touch with some excellent letting agents. But where you have your Smoke & Mirrors event is entirely up to you. Nothing’s off limits: we love new and unusual venues.

what makes us special

Some murder mysteries are simply downloadable packages designed for small groups playing at home; others are put on for larger parties with perhaps a few actors and a vague sense of structure. We give you a detailed and believable scenario, a full cast of professional actors, unforgettable set-pieces, excellent comedy, plenty of surprises, and storylines you can really get your teeth into.
