Over the last decade, thousands of guests have had the delight of attending a Murder Mystery hosted by Moonstone. Originating in the South-West of England with Moonstone Theatre Company, Moonstone Murder Mysteries opened in London on the Halloween of 2017 and has never looked back. Since opening our London branch, the Moonstone name has grown even more, performing across the UK as well as Spain and Gibraltar. Current/ Previous clients include Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Hatfield House, Hawth Theatre Crawley, and Hyatt Hotels. We also have had 3 London residencies, firstly in the West End with Murder at the Library, secondly in Mayfair with Murder at the Boisdale, and we are currently partnered with Fever to create and run Murder on the Underground at the Postal Museum in Farringdon.
Alongside our venue clients hosting public tickets events, we also have performed countless events for Birthday Parties, Corporate Entertainment, Team Building Events, Hen & Stag Do’s, Local clubs, and even a wedding or two! With our unique style of interactivity, we work only with professional comedy improvisers, meaning no matter the case, we will keep your guests engaged and laughing all case long!
All of our shows are written in-house by our Creative Director, Sam, with themes varying from our Classic 1920’s Agatha Christie-inspired Peril on the Palatine Express, Fawlty Towers-Esqe Murder at the Mason Hotel, all the way to our Fairy-tale themed Bippity, Boppity, Buried! There is a case for everyone to enjoy, plus bespoke writing services available for any theme not covered in our repertoire.
In addition to our in-person events, when the world closed for COVID-19 in 2020, we used the time to adapt and create a variety of shows to be played with live actors via Zoom. Starting online with YouTube at the start of the UK lockdown, for 12 weeks we hosted the live Murder Mystery Solve-a-Long series, raising money for various charities, whilst offering hundreds of Detective’s every week an hour or two of escapism and silliness. The online Murder Mysteries remain a staple of our offerings and we have had the privilege to perform for Detective Teams all over the world, in countries such as the USA, Canada, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, Switzerland, China, and Singapore.
We are delighted to now have returned to live in-person events and are currently booking until December 2022, alongside expanding to our new branch of Moonstone York. You won’t regret booking a Moonstone Murder Mystery and we hope you have the sleuthing skills to catch our killer. Contact today for rates and options, alongside a copy of our digital brochure.
