Throw yourself into our immersive virtual murder mystery weekend and get involved with clues and discoveries.

The founder of the Worth Sweet Co has died and you are invited to join his friends and family at the reading of the will.

Over two days (January 22nd and 23rd 2021) you will uncover clues, come face to face with the murder suspects to ask them the burning questions, solve puzzles to reveal more clues. Before on the third and final day we will reveal the winner of our Top Detective prize at the end of our exciting CSI workshop.

You can choose to become a mini character in this virtual murder mystery weekend with knowledge of secrets or more of the suspects – giving you the chance to get involved as much or as little as you wish. Mini characters are limited to 12 so if you want to have a part you make sure you grab a Mini Character Invitation asap.

Everything takes place on Zoom with clues delivered through our website so you can sit back from the comfort of your home and be a real armchair detective.
