Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed your Murder Mystery last Friday night 23 October at the Mickleover Court, Derby, which is the first one of your company we have seen but hopefully it will not be the last! We brought along a party of 13 family and friends who all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, although we all failed to pick out the murderer. Considering the actors only had a basic plot to work around and had to improvise their performances in response to a wide range of questions from the audience, they all did extremely well and were all very convincing. Very best wishes for your future success.

Performance very good – authentic period characters.
Alison Waugh from Hull, August 2015
Fantastic – the best I've been to.
Jackie Thorpe from Derbyshire, 24/04/2015

Alx Piranion from Exeter, 08/03/2015
Just wanted to say a big thank you to and your team for a brilliant weekend. This was our third event. We have not managed to completely solve the crime yet but will be coming to another event one day soon for another try.
Tony and Diane, via e-mail 08/03/2015
Excellent performance and script. The fun of trying to solve the murder with a group of like minded people. The cast were very friendly after the scenes and mixed well with the clients.
Linda Shaw, via e-mail 15/09/2014
The actors getting into their roles and enjoying themselves helped us all to relax and ask questions.

Diana, via e-mail 26/08/2014
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you and your actors for a fantastic night on Saturday. Everyone told me what an amazing time they had, most of them had never done anything like this before. I also had a great time and was really pleased to have managed to get the murderer correct! Special thanks to your actor playing the police (Penny), she did a fantastic job of controlling a room of rowdy ladies and moving things along! Many thanks.
Jenny Battison, via e-mail 09/06/2014
Hope you are well - just a quick email to say a huge thank you for the event at cave castle last night. An absolutely fantastic event, great script, amazing actors, expertly delivered and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Big thanks to the actors - really talented individuals, please do extend my praise and thanks to them. Well done and we look forward to booking the next event with you.
Gavin, via e-mail 06/04/2014
Hi there Jack, Just wanted to extend a huge thankyou to the actors who attended the murder mystery on Saturday! They were fabulous, more entertaining and larger than life than i could have imagined. The murder went down a treat, the barman had the shock of his life at Charlotte's blood curdling scream and my future father-in-law almost had a heart attack when Charlotte "performed" for him.
Every guest had a wonderful time from my 15 year old cousin to 80 year old Grandfather. Shame we didn't get to meet you but Vern ran the show like clockwork on your behalf. Many many thanks for making my birthday memorable and a wonderful success!
Yvonne Rumfitt via e-mail 27/02/2014
We just wanted to thank you and your team for the brilliant weekend at The New Country House Hotel in Cardiff. We had a fabulous time and can't wait for another one. Please pass our thanks on to all of the cast - how you manage to stay in character and improvise everything for such a sustained period is amazing!
Hilary Jones and Hamish Cullum via e-mail 18/11/2013
Just wanted to thank you and your team for last night. It was very enjoyable! It is a surreal experience though, talking to actors in character! Please pass on my thanks to your actors - they all did a splendid job!
Andrew Crees, Senior Project Manager, Virgin Media via e-mail 14/11/2013
Just a note to thank you and the cast for the weekend, we had a wonderful time. It was all great fun and went all too quickly, my daughter winning being the icing on the cake. All of you couldn’t have done more to make us feel welcome and to entertain. 10 out of 10.
Theresa, via e-mail 21/10/2013
A little belated, (but I had a surprise city break for my birthday and been away), I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the other actors for giving us such a wonderful evening. I’ve had so many comments from friends and family saying how much they enjoyed the evening. You and your team really made it a party to remember - it's exactly what I'd hoped for - an evening full of laughter and entertainment.
Louise, via e-mail 01/10/2013
Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Also liked the cast mingling in the bar out of character after the show.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for an amazing weekend at the Grosvenor Hotel Stratford. We laughed all weekend and really enjoyed the plot. Well acted and the characters were very entertaining. Will definitely book again. Many thanks.
Gary Fleming, via e-mail 24/06/2013
Yet another fantastic weekend of murder, laughter and confusion. You never fail to entertain. We had the most wonderful weekend, having brought more newbies, who are still reeling and telling everyone about their experience. We will definitely be at Cardiff for your inaugural weekend.
Liz Small, via e-mail 16/04/2013
Hi there. Just attended the murder mystery weekend in Harrogate - 'They Sphinx it's all over'. Many thanks for a fabulous weekend - one of the best we have ever had. We felt really at home in the hotel and enjoyed the whole event. We had such a lot of fun and laughter and felt proud that I (Linda) was awarded the 'bullet' for my participation (whatever was meant by that)!
The performance by all the actors was brilliant and thoroughly entertaining and we'll certainly be back (oh yesss)! Thanks again.
Linda and David Stringer and party, via email 23/10/2012
Thank you for an amazing weekend 7th - 9th Sept at the Grosvenor hotel Stratford! It was our first murder mystery and we will definitely be booking up again... :)
Joey Hirons, via Facebook 10/09/2012
Thank you for a great weekend 7th-9th Sept. We all had a fab time on our second weekend with "It's Murder". The acting and organization is brilliant and we will definitely be booking again! Kindest regards the red hat/ wig table

The whole weekend has been amazing - thank you all so much, a wonderful event.
Caroline Hopkins, via e-mail 08/07/2012
Just to say a massive thank you to you and your amazing cast for the weekend in Stratford. We all had an absolutely amazing time and it generated a lot of debate! (I was adamant that I was right!). The icing on the cake was Gemma winning on the Sunday (I am sure we will never hear the end of it!!). We would love to welcome you to Wales and I would like to organise an event in Cardiff.
Zoë, via e-mail 21/02/2012
Me and my wife attended the evening at the Ramada on Saturday and had a brilliant night. Your cast were brilliant and great to chat with in the bar after.
Dougie Walton, via e-mail 20/02/2012
We stayed at the Best Western Grosvenor Hotel for a murder mystery weekend. Very enjoyable and packed to the rafters with intrigue. Can't wait to do another one.
From a review on superbreak.com 13/11/2011
Just back from Stratford; what a fab weekend we had for our daughter's 21st birthday. It was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. Thanks to everyone especially Jack for making this weekend possible.
The Bryant family, via e-mail 18/09/2011
I took my friend on this "mystery" trip as a surprise for her 60th birthday. She had no idea until we got to the hotel, when she saw the poster she was like an excited kid. We had such a laugh, the cast and the other guests were really friendly. I would highly recommend it, excellent entertainment and the hotel was really comfortable with good food.
From a review on superbreak.com 14/08/2011
To keep 30 odd people entertained after several days of intense lectures is testament in itself.
Rob Barker, via e-mail 10/03/2011
Just wanted to thank you for all your help on the phone the other day, regarding accessibility for wheelchair users etc, it was so helpful. After a bit of negotiating with Best Western, myself and my partner are thrilled to be joining you this weekend for the Murder Mystery mayhem! We are very much looking forward to the weekend and would like to thank you again.
Bonnie, via e-mail 04/03/2011
Hi. Myself and my partner have just returned from your murder mystery at the Grosvenor hotel, Stratford, weekend February 18th onwards. We would like to say a big thank you for a wonderful time... To make it even better, I proposed during our stay there, and thankfully she said yes, which means that your performance will always stay with us at such a special time.
Matthew Doe, via e-mail 21/02/2011
I bought a murder mystery weekend as a xmas gift for my mother and my friend at the Best Western Stratford, 23rd January 2011. What an absolutely fantastic time they had. She said that your presentation was very entertaining and very professional. She is telling all and everyone that they MUST go, and she will probably be going again. Thank you for helping to make a xmas gift so special.
Mrs Lesley Hague, via e-mail 27/01/2011
We came to It's Murder at Stratford this weekend and it was one of the best weekends we can remember. Jerry Houseago, Sutton Coldfield 25/01/2011
I just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU for the most amazing weekend. We still have not come down from a high yet. It worked absolutely brilliantly. Everyone had so much fun. Each of Alex's parties have surpassed the last - goodness knows what we do next! You and your team gave us the VIP experience. It was truly awesome. Thank you so much.
Shirley Bell, Divisional Manager for Co-op Travel 03/11/2010
Just thought that we would drop you a line and say that we had a wonderful time and would like to thank you for making our wedding day one to remember.
Ian and Rachel, via e-mail 01/11/2010
Thank you for all the little touches which helped to make it such a memorable weekend. The suppers were delicious, your staff most obliging, nothing was too much trouble. The "house party" atmosphere at the Whitehouse created just the right atmosphere for the scene set by the players. We thoroughly enjoyed the fun, suspense, racking our brains (we don't usually do that at the weekend!) and just loved being part of the investigations! We thought the cast were well suited to their parts and carried them out most professionally... the humour was second to none, at one time we were crying with laughter. So, a big thank you to everyone involved in making it such a successful weekend, it was wonderful to share so much fun and laughter with everyone. So till next October, many thanks.
Jennie Dorey, via e-mail 19/10/2010
On behalf of Carolyn myself and my in-laws who I dragged along also I'd like to thank you all for a fab weekend, I admit after fist 15 minutes in the bar with Lady Victoria Backham, I wondered what the hell have I done here!!!! As the weekend rolled by and the plot unfolded, I can't describe how much fun we had and funnily enough I've being looking at your other event in Harrogate already. Again I'd like to thank you all for a fun packed and entertaining weekend.
Richard and Carolyn, via e-mail 20/09/2010
When my wife booked the murder mystery weekend for our anniversary, to be honest being the first time, I was in two minds and certainly had my doubts. My fears however proved completely unfounded! The cast were absolutely fabulous, being warm friendly completely professional and totally convincing. The murder plot though peppered with hilarity, was superb and teased the old grey matter superbly! The location was fantastic with great food and incredible service. I can honestly say without reservation that it's been one of, if not the best and most memorable weekends I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. By the way the first prize for fancy dress now takes pride of place on the mantle piece for all to see! A huge thank you to you all, very very well done!
Chris, via e-mail
We have just returned from attending the Matrimonial Mayhem in Stratford. We brought my Mum and a friend for her birthday and she has said that it was the best present she had ever experienced. I asked them if they would do another weekend and they said "just book it and we are there". There can be no higher praise than that. We are so exhausted from the laughter and cannot thank you enough for the joy your team have brought us once again. We are definitely coming again and should be grateful if you could let me know when the 2011 list of events will be available, as we need to save our pennies for the next trip.
Elizabeth Small, via e-mail
I would like to say how much we enjoyed your Murder Mystery in Stratford recently. Every cast member was absolutely brilliant. We enjoyed every second and haven't stopped talking about it. Thank you.
Brenda Wakeman, via e-mail
A friend and I attended 'Fowl Play' in Leamington Spa over the recent weekend. This was a first for both of us so I am writing to say how much we enjoyed ourselves. The cast were very good encouraging and trying to get us on the right track. They were also good fun to chat to later in the evening and I cannot praise them enough. It must have difficult for them as we were a very small group. I am now thinking of doing another weekend at the beginning of September in Stratford.
Melanie, via e-mail
Thank you very much indeed for a thoroughly challenging and enjoyable afternoon. In retrospect the skills required to participate were even more relevant than I'd anticipated which made this even more successful than I'd hoped. The communication, preparation, planning, time-management, leadership and team-building involved made this extremely relevant to our business on all levels and I thank you for your planning, support, patience and facilitation.
Bridget Davies, 104.7 Minster fm
Just a note of thanks for making my fathers 70th a fantastic time we haven't laughed so much as a family in ages, the cast were fantastic, obviously well drilled by Sgt Major Jack, Fabian/Matt you were hilarious, my wife still hasn't stopped gloating. Just waiting for the certificate to get framed and put up above the bed. Once again many thanks to you all for a brilliant weekend. hopefully see you all again soon

Excellent. I haven't laughed so much for a long time.

Returned an hour ago from a weekend in Stratford with the Goode Friday Gang- what an excellent weekend- no-one was more surprised than me that my husband Dave got it right and won the prize! I don't think I will ever forget 'Gary' and his hanky! It's my second murder mystery weekend with your company but it certainly won't be my last! You have a fantastic group of actors and everybody of all ages and backgrounds had a great time. Thank you so much.

Jack, I'd just like to thank you both for our 'Xmas' party last week. We had a fantastic time. Jack - thank you for recommending the location, you were right the food was lush and the entertainment was hilarious, even the people that were unsure about the event loved it. I can honestly say that when I move into my new role I'll be bearing you in mind for future events.
Michelle Wilson, Sales Channel Development Manager, British Gas
The performance was priceless - we had a great time. The script was excellent and funny. Best hotel and service I've ever been to. I don't want to go home.
Hifsa Ahmed Ilford, from Ilford
We just wanted to say that we had a fantastic weekend in Stratford Upon Avon at your Murder Mystery weekend. It was a wonderful birthday surprise from my husband. We haven't stopped laughing yet!! Your team were amazing, and though we were totally confused all the way along, we had a great time. We are definitely going to bring a couple of people back in August to attend 'The Wedding'.

All brilliant in keeping the performance, drama and tension. We could not wish for a better weekend or set of actors. Professionally and personally brilliant.

Thank you to you and your team for your performance on Friday evening. The actors handled many difficult questions and situations brilliantly and with great professionalism.
Nichola Thresh, The Middlethorpe Hall and Spa
I appreciate all your assistance and look forward to organising an event for my partner later in 2010. You folks have got it all together. Even though I have not actually experienced an 'It's Murder' event, if your level of customer service is anything to go by, then the event will be superb too.
Liz, via e-mail
What a fabulous event on Friday, I was here to see it and so glad I was, your actors were fantastic.
Sarah-Louise Walker, Sales and Marketing Manager, White Hart Hotel and Conference Centre
Yet another fantastic weekend with fantastic entertainment. Speaking to you all in the bar after the show adds to the perfect weekend, looking forward to the next already! You have the best actors I have seen and I have been to 8 murder mysteries now. After stumbling on 'It's Murder' 4 years ago I won't be going anywhere else!

Hi. Just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we all enjoyed the Murder Mystery
Night on Saturday. It was perfect from start to finish. It really was top
quality entertainment. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it.
Meeting everyone in the bar beforehand worked a treat and really did set the
scene! We know where to come when we want to celebrate another special occasion!
David & Claire, via e-mail
Just a note to say thank you very much from the bottom
of our hearts. We had an amazing weekend and was really sorry to come home
to diet coke and ITV's Heartbeat! I can assure you that you will see us both
again. Matt is an incredibly talented man, when he sang at the end I had to
hold my mouth closed and almost had to bring out the tissue he handed me on
night 1, I am a super fan. Please keep us updated with your future dates,
venues etc. Lots of love and very best wishes to you all

was the best weekend we’ve had by far. Thank you. We
will be back.

I just want to express our appreciation for a fantastic
Murder Mystery Night at the Days Inn in Wakefield last Saturday. The entertainment
value and the enjoyment had by all was truly amazing, and the fun we had
on the night was immeasurable. The actors were excellent, and the interaction
with them was a nice fitting end to the evening. A fantastic night, and
we will consider attending another one with our friends shortly.
Paul and Fiona Clarke
Just a short e-mail in respect of our corporate Murder
Mystery held at the Grosvenor Stratford upon Avon on July 1st 2008. The
Murder Mystery was enjoyed by all present, the mix of humour and intrigue
was set at a level appropriate for the audience, the script was professionally
acted and the skill of the actors in terms of ad-libbing, when required,
Gwyn Fennell, Continental Tyre Group Ltd
I went to one of your Murder Weekends last
year at Stratford, and really enjoyed it. I have been to several Murder
Weekends by different companies, but I think yours are by far the best.
We've just got back from my 'surprise' weekend
to celebrate my retirement - it was fabulous. My colleagues had organised
to take me to a murder mystery weekend in Stratford upon Avon - the hotel
was so good, the actors were excellent and we had such a good time. We
shall be looking to repeat the experience again.
Just a quick thank you note for making my
birthday a fantastic and memorable experience. I have really enjoyed myself
this weekend at Stratford and will definitely be going on another one of
your Murder Mystery events. Although I got it totally wrong, I had a huge
amount of fun.
Steve Newton of Cambridge
The best murder mystery I've been to.
