Thank you for last night, the feedback was great. ‘We had a fabulous evening thank you. Everyone really enjoyed it and the actors were fantastic!’ Thanks for your high level of service as always.

Associated Training

What a storming performance! You and your actors were absolutely brilliant. The way you worked the crowd and interacted with the key characters was sublime. (more…)

Alliance Boots

I have to say that the Murder Mystery was an outstanding evening and if you ever get asked what would be good for team morale and bringing people together in a relaxed and humorous environment then this is it. Without exception, I’ve been contacted by every person who attended the evening to say how they thoroughly enjoyed it and was the best time they’ve spent with their colleagues. A huge thank you to the actors who ran the evening perfectly for us. They were superb.

The Guardian

It’s like being mugged by Kenneth Williams.

Barclays Bank

Thanks for the professional way that you put it all together.


It’s certainly a murder mystery with a difference – you could die laughing!

Mercedes Benz

It was an absolute laugh and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Private Client – Isle of Man

Just wanted to let you know, on behalf of everybody, that Saturday night was brilliant. We were all very impressed and it was so nice and easy to work with you, plus the production was amazing. Thank you for the chronicle, it was superb. Thanks again and good luck with everything.

Penguin Events

Firstly, just wanted to say a huge thank you for Friday’s Event – the feedback has been fantastic – they all loved it and kept talking about it at their team building activity the next day!! A big thank you to you and all of the actors!

Lakshmi Mittal and family

Thank you for a fantastic evening, it was superb!

Val McDermid – Crime author

You are a terrific Poirot, right down to the twinkle!

Private Client – Stella McCartney

Martin, we wanted to thank you for making our special days before our big day so much fun! We had a blast!

Private Client – Paul Stewart

Everything was absolutely amazing, all my guests loved the Murder Mystery and thought the actors were world class. Everyone kept saying what fun the whole evening was.

Birmingham Repertory Theatre

ADP Events provided a tailored version of their murder mystery to fit with our Fundraising Dinner. They were very easy to work with, flexible and professional throughout. The evening was a great success and enjoyed by all.

Burgh Island

The transformation was complete; there, in the centre of our Palm Court Bar, stood Hercule Poirot exercising his little grey cells. Our guests were delighted and amazed – I honestly think some of them believed they were greeted by the genuine article and of course, Poirot did not reveal the fictional truth!

Private Client – Salzburg

I have now heard directly from my client and he was delighted with the production you staged in Salzburg last week.
He very much appreciated your additional surprise and was also much amused by the responses of his family and friends to the unexpected initial ‘murder’! So, my thanks again to you and your team for your production, and I will certainly have no hesitation in booking or recommending you again in the future should the opportunity arise.

OMEGA International PR and Events team

Our guests enjoyed the experience from start to finish and the media interest was great. Your character was central to the theme of the event and your professional performance only served to enhance the event and everyone’s enjoyment of it. We would like to thank you for the work you put into this event and in particular the attention to detail in your preparation and your performance. It was a pleasure to have you on board.


I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that yesterday’s team building event in Oxford was a resounding success. It was well organised and great fun despite the pouring rain and my team’s inability to win!! I would definitely recommend this event and hopefully we will be using you again in the near future.


Martin is a great co-ordinator who instils confidence in his ability to guide the actors and the venue staff through the evening, which allowed me to relax and enjoy myself too, rather than stressing over the details. GREAT JOB. Thank you.

Business Learning Foundation

What a fantastic success yet again!! All those that saw the Murder Mystery last time said that it was even better this time – and it was utterly brilliant last time!! Your team are outstanding and the client was completely delighted with how the whole event was delivered. Your actors, as always, were exquisitely comical and world class in their way of working the audience. Hilarious! It set exactly the right tone for the conference – great fun, interactive with just the right amount of audience participation which will be long remembered as such a successful and enjoyable night. The rich, layered, funny, silly, uproarious and magical few hours were jam packed with a crackling funny script, sublime comedic acting, perfect gag timing and so many hundreds of quick-fire bon mots flying all over the place. Every single attendee – from a very varied and diverse group – completely loved the whole experience. So much fabulous material that carried on well after the event itself. The highlight of the year!

Associated Training

The Soap Opera Team Challenge ‘East Corriedale’ was even better than the fabulous Murder Mystery event we did with ADP Events last year. How innovative! What a fantastic and creative idea! The way the actors delivered the unfolding stages of the activity through dinner, between the courses and into the rehearsal phase and then to the crescendo of the performance was utterly brilliant. It was entertaining, imaginative, totally engaging and very, very funny indeed. All the team members were fully involved in the production of the Soap Opera. Every single person loved the opportunity to get fully involved, writing the crazy lines, putting on the costumes and using the weird and bizarre props, but getting fully immersed in the whole process from start to finish with the hilarious characters and their outrageous but very witty names. The scenarios were hysterical and even the most bashful was up there giving Oscar winning performances – including one of the team doing the splits! Thank you so much for what was described by the Director as the best and funniest night of his working life. They will never forget the event and it is guaranteed to be a talking point for months – and probably years – to come. How are you going to top that next time? Because we’ll definitely want a next time!
