Murder Mystery Weekends
Join us at our holiday parks for our Murder Mystery Weekends. We have teamed up with talented murder mystery actors from The Moonstone Theatre Company to bring you a weekend of highly engaging and interactive mysteries to solve. You will have to eavesdrop on conversations and keep your eyes peeled for vital clues that will help you solve the murder. Talk to the suspects, find out who was where and when? Did they know the victim? But beware there will also be suspects trying to mislead you to cover their tracks. Can you piece all of the evidence together to find out whodunnit, how and what their motive was?
Our murder mystery plots are varied and interesting - you may find yourself immersed in the circus world, at a doomed Christmas market or part of a pantomime gone wrong! Starting the weekend off in style award winning magician Odeeni will be going round the tables and doing some up close magic and performing for all of our guests, followed by live cabaret acts to bring the evening to an end.
Our Murder Mystery Breaks in Devon and Cornwall offer fantastic value for money. Your weekend break will include self catering accommodation in a lodge, caravan or chalet. You will arrive on Friday and there will be a mystery to solve that evening including a free buffet. On Saturday a mystery will be set up for you to peruse at your leisure. Examine the evidence, follow the clues and chat with the suspects before presenting your findings at around 5pm. That will be followed by another murder mystery on Saturday evening. To bring the weekend to an end you can enjoy some fantastic live cabaret on the Sunday evening.
Our Murder Mystery Breaks have been put together with a team of experts for maximum fun and enjoyment. Some sceanrios easily lend themselves to fancy dress themes which is encouraged but totally optional!

Friday 23rd March - What The Dickens
The Christmas rush never actually stops all the year round for some people. Acme Decorations are getting into full swing. This small company had developed a niche market for its decorations and the product line was selling well. However, one night disaster had struck when the co- founder and Managing Director, one Jacob Marley, was found hanged from a beam in the factory. The rope had been decorated with tinsel and the body too had been decorated with more tinsel, hanging baubles and candles.
Who would have done such a thing, and why?
