I was recently invited by Shaun of Joe Blogs Network to attend a murder mystery event at the Rennaissance Hotel in Manchester which was sponsored by BGO which is an online gambling site in order to promote their new Murder Mystery game. You can read more about them and the new mystery mystery game they have launched on their blog
As I have always wanted to attend a murder mystery event I of course jumped at the chance and was not disappointed.
After being greeted with a glass of bubbly upon arrival (always a good start to an evening!) we were taken through the dining and performance area. There were around 30 bloggers attending the event and the three tables were challenged to see who could solve the murder by the end of the evening.
The murder mystery theme was "Who Killed His Lordship?" which is run by The Murder Mystery Company
After being seated we were soon greeted with a staggering Lord Burlington coming into the room, shortly to meet his end and his maker, face down on the floor. We were then immediately questioned as to what we had seen by the aptly named PC World and the famous Sherlock Holmes.
We were supplied with the list of all the known suspects as well as evidence packs, suspect requests forms, fingerprint kits and everything necessary in order to catch the culprit.
Whilst making our enquiries and voicing our suspicions as to who had committed the foul crime, we were also treated to a beautiful three course meal.
After the meal each table were asked to write down who they believed the murderer was and the winner won a bottle of champagne. I had a brilliant night and want to thank Shaun of @JoesBloggers for the invite.
As to "whodunnit" ? Well I'm afraid that I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you so instead, I urge you to attend a murder mystery event yourself!
