Staying in just got fun.

Found yourself completely engrossed in true-crime documentaries lately? Put your newfound sleuthing skills to good use, gather your mates and immerse yourself in a compelling mystery that’s sure to drag out the Sherlock Holmes in you. Hosted by a number of entertaining actors, you can now take part in a series of hilarious, live murder mystery events online, with a ton of different themes for budding detectives to choose from.

1. Murder & Sparkling Wine

A murder that’ll transport you back to the 1930s, Murder & Sparkling Wine takes place at a party held by Lord Jolly Jape and his family (played by brilliant, hands-on actors) – and as expected, the event features a big ‘whodunnit?’ storyline following the mysterious death of a guest. Meet with shady and highly-suspecting characters who all have something to hide, and uncover dark family secrets that might just lead you to the truth. You’ll even receive case files ahead of the live online event to study like a true sleuth. Purchase tickets here.

2. The Big Cat Murder Mystery

Inspired by that hit documentary series, The Big Cat Murder Mystery is full of wild characters, exotic animals and wacky secrets. But who set fire to the zoo? Was it Korali, the cult leader with seven wives? Bobby, the park hand who’s been exploited by the owners? Or maybe even Dolores? Lover of animals with a very suspecting clean record. Your job will be to help the sheriff decipher the clues, and quickly figure out who started the fire, and what their motives were. Statements are acted out in music form (of course), and participants are in for a whole lot of crazy drama for the duration. Book onto the game here.

3. Death at Downturn Abbey

Inspired by hit show Downton Abbey, participants can don their finest gowns and poshest accessories for this one, ’cause you’re invited to the Grabham’s fabulous party. But things take quite the turn when Lord Grabham is discovered dead in grand home – and it’s up to you to find out whodunnit. Uncover hidden family secrets, dig for dirt and meet with mysterious characters, all of which have something to hide. Was it all just an accident? Or is there a murderer lurking in the manor?
