Thanks again for a great weekend."

"What a fantastic night at Haughton Hall Hotel and Leisure Club Murder Mystery thanks to the super talented actors from It's Murder. Our members and partners had a fantastic time."
BNI Thomas Telford, via Facebook, 20/12/2022

"I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed working with Its Murder over the years (I think it must be approaching twenty!) Murder mysteries are by definition very much improvisation given you never know how the audience/guests will respond. I have found this both professionally and personally rewarding with the opportunity to develop my skills with a great bunch of actors. So, thank you for the years of fun, and hopefully a few more to come!"
Mike, actor with It's Murder, 05/09/2022

"I enjoy the fun and comedy element of the scripts and I am amazed how many different plots there are. I am excited to play more roles and act on more scripts as it is a great pleasure to work for the best murder mystery company. It's Murder focus on the guests experience as a priority. The scripts are very well written and they give a lot of variety to choose from. It's great to see people come back time after time and enjoy the murder mysteries. It's Murder really are the best as they strive to offer everyone a a fantastic experience. They will take you back in time to the 1920's and up to modern day. Guests dress up for many themes. The last 3 years with It's Murder have been the best in my acting life."
Craig, an actor with It's Murder, 27/08/2022

"I first came across It's Murder when I was a guest at the age of 16! As soon as I met the actors and saw them come to life I was in love with the company. It really is like no other murder company! The comedy, the jokes, the laughs... It really is the most fun and it's the perfect night / weekend for any age and for any occasion."
Claire Cummins, actress, 24/08/2022

"Just a quick email to thank you for facilitating our Dining in Night on Friday. You all did a fantastic job and it was a brilliant night, thoroughly enjoyed by all! Please pass my thanks on to the rest of the actors/actresses."
Bryony Stanton, RAF Waddington, 26/04/2022

"The Murder Mystery event was incredible, the 'cast' were great, so talented! If only they gave Oscars for this kind of event, they would all be up for an award! They created a brilliant aptmosphere, which caused all the guests to bond together. They are clearly very talented actors, and their ability to ad lib was so impressive. Also, on a personal note, I would like to thank them all for their kindness to me."

bonnylol, Stourbridge, February 2018

"We stayed at the Haughton Hall hotel for two nights whilst attending a Murder Mystery weekend put on by It's Murder. We have attended many of these weekends and can truly say we always enjoy this company, very professional. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, the staff were very helpful, friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The food was the best we have had for a long time in a hotel - well cooked and presented and hot! We will certainly visit again."
caroltony22, Basingstoke, February 2018

"I attended the Murder Mystery Weekend, and from the moment we arrived until we left, it exceeded my expectations. Usually when you go to an event the food provided is a let down because it is mass catering. This was restaurant quality food, really delicious, I would definitely stay there again."
February 2018

"My daughters booked this weekend for me to celebrate my 60th. The hotel staff were charming and helpful, food delicious and the inclusion of the murder mystery was a huge hit. It was a very interactive experience without being too intrusive. The actors were very professional and the whole set up very believable."
Angela P, Mirfield, 3 December 2017

"We have just returned from a surprise Murder Mystery weekend at Haughton Hall hotel. It was really enjoyable! The hotel itself is 1700's so has lots of character and is an ideal setting for 'murder'!! The The Murder Mystery event was run by 'Its Murder' and was done exceedingly well, actors very convincing and professional. They involved all the guests and it was very well performed and managed. Well Done!"
ju1912, Alsager Cheshre, 27 November 2017

It's beginning to feel like we're meeting up with old friends you are such an entertaining and joyous bunch. I do hope we can continue with our annual booking. I would also mention to whom it may concern that we can highly recommend you without reservation. With thanks and kindest good wishes."
Joy Fairchild, 26th October 2017

I think it's fair to say from the level of staff participation and enthusiasm that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Murder Mystery dinner. I look forward to working with you again in the future."
Laura Gilbert, HR Adviser, 3rd February 2017

"We've just experienced our first murder mystery at Haughton Hall. What a thrill. Skilful scripting, excellent acting and the will for audience to want to naturally participate- if you haven't done this you should. An awesome experience at a good price at a great venue. Met some great guests,staff and actors. Money and time very well spent. Food was good and service was faultless. If you want a weekend to remember do this."
N J Tomlinson, January 2017

Vipula M from Northampton, January 2017

"Just returned from a weekend of Murder mystery ran by It's Murder. I must admit before we arrived I was going to just sit back and watch. I got well into it and engaged with the actors and asked more questions than I ever thought I would. The actors were great, the characters were superb and the plot and script were very good. I would highly recommend it and will return to Haughton Hall for another Murder Mystery Plot. We met some lovely people and made some friends. And a big thank you to the actors for an excellent performance."

"I just want to thank you and your team for a lovely evening on the 14th May. Everybody enjoyed it tremendously. It was a great evening."
Val, via e-mail 06/06/2016

"We were very very pleased with the actors every single one of them put in brilliant performances and their ad libs were top class. Both myself and Alison have done quite a bit of acting in the local Am Dram scene in Bradford so we know how difficult it is to keep in character for long periods. Everything about the evening was just fantastic. All in all it was top class and I would like you to pass on our thanks to the very talented cast who served up a brilliant nights entertainment I would definitely recommend them to anyone. It was nice to meet them afterwards as themselves in the bar as well."
Gez, via e-mail 25/05/2016

Jenny Loyd, via e-mail 26/01/2016

"Thank you so much to all of you for providing the entertainment here in Suffolk on Saturday evening. I thought the story line was amusing and you all carried off the personalities most appropriately - I particularly like the 'mother' who had an excellent voice! You were most sensitive to the fact that it was a family gathering and it really was the kindest idea to give the young girl who guessed the culprit, one of your special badges."
Jenny Loyd, via e-mail 28/10/2015

"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."
Chris and Ann, via e-mail 28/10/2015

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

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!"

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."

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."

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 14/08/2011

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

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."
