Looking for an online activity that leaves your group feeling connected and smiling whilst they're miles apart? Then look no further than our Virtual Murder Mysteries! Packed with interaction, suspicious suspects and plenty of laughter along the way!
When lockdown began back in March 2020 (Which feels like a lifetime ago these days), we knew we had to act fast to adapt and find a way to offer Detective’s a way to still enjoy our investigations. So, we became the first (and only) Murder Mystery company in the world to offer live Solve-A-Long cases, played every Thursday to audiences around the world. Using our experience from the 2 Lockdown Solve-a-Long series’.
The way it works is our Inspector will present you with 4 suspicious suspects. After providing the preliminary facts of the case, an 'Assistant Detective' is selected at random from your team who will pick the order of the suspects to question. After hearing the backstory & alibi of the suspect, your team will be able to ask your questions to the suspect to try and pick up clues (and avoid the red herrings along the way!).
Once all the suspects have been questioned, we take a poll on who you believe the guilty party is and the Inspector will take a selection of your team's conclusions before revealing all. Running time is 75-90 minutes (depending on how many questions your team has).
Since we began offering our virtual option, over 100 live virtual cases have been played globally, from London to New York, from Amsterdam to Copenhagen, from California to Zürich, and from Edinburgh to Singapore (A lot of coffee was needed for that morning!) Online clients include; Lloyds Bank, TikTok, Fujitsu, Adyen Ltd, Markem Imaje, Havas Health & You, and Adobe, alongside numerous other businesses and private events.
We hope we can provide you a chance for some escapism in these difficult times and with our shows, your group will feel more connected together, no matter how many miles apart.

Here's what our Virtual Event clients had to say!
"Quite honestly the highlight of 2020 for me, it's been the most I've laughed and smile in a long time."

“Thank you so much- that was brilliant and ran very smoothly! Great to see the team really get involved and ask plenty of questions.”
"A fabulous evening. The cast were fantastic and you marshalled proceedings very well. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the event.
"Everyone really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. Definately made up for not being able to see each other in person. I've learnt I'm a rubbish Detective though, I'll stick with the office manager role!"
