Sherlock’s First Case
Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee Is Spoiled By People Dying. She Is Not Amused!

Our new online virtual murder mystery game Murder in the Red Room is now available here. You can run it yourselves or we can run it for you. 

Numbers:  20-250.
Style: Highly Participative or Fairly Participative.

Our Sherlock Holmes murder mystery is set in 1887 when Queen Victoria celebrated her fiftieth year of reigning over us. The plot is designed for 20-250 people and during it everyone assumes the role of a noble, distinguished member of the court. The Prince of Wales, perhaps. His charming wife, Princess Alexandra of Denmark. Or maybe Her Majesty Victoria, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Defender of the Faith and Empress of India.

Perfect as a corporate team-building event or for private parties, the plot transports you back to a gala celebration for Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in which a dreadful crime occurs. A guest steals a gift meant for her then moments later drops down dead. Infamy! Treason! Murder! Fortunately, someone is present who can help everyone investigate what lies behind this heinous act: step forward, Sherlock Holmes…

Usually run over a meal, Sherlock’s First Case can also take place on its own and generally lasts about three and a half hours. Dressing up isn’t compulsory but can add considerably to the fun. Will Sherlock save Her Majesty from Wickedness, Wrong Doing and Jeopardy? Or will the Forces of Evil triumph? Queen Victoria might not be amused – but you will be by this elegant, absorbing, intriguing and thoroughly entertaining Sherlock Holmes murder mystery.

GROUP SIZE, TIMINGS, DATES:
• For 20-250 people
• Indoors or outdoors or both
• 3-3½ hours
