“Far over misty mountains cold To dungeons deep and caverns old

We must away, ere break of day, To find our long-forgotten gold.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again

Somewhere between the Shire and Isengard, on the road to Mordor we find a magical place where Hobbits and Orcs, Ents and Elves all live in harmony. Where tradesman and crafters, warriors and wizards and dragons and dwarves can be found wandering freely.

Wander through Rivendell village, purchase wares, fill your bellies, dance and get merry on mead.

You will be sent a reservation notification and you will be requested to share the following information:

  • Guest name and surname
  • Mobile numbers (to send any event notifications)
  • Email addresses (to send individual character descriptions and further information)
Please indicate the gender of each guest so that we assign the correct character description to each one of your guests, unless you don’t really mind playing a man or a woman!
We will send each guest their TOP SECRET character description.  (This will be done after the RSVP deadline one week before the event)

Do I have to dress up?
Dressing up is not a must but it is strongly advised to help you get into the mood of the game.  Dressing up will also help your fellow players identify and remember your character more clearly and it adds to the fun and laughter.

What happens at the murder mystery game?
Each guest will receive a mystery booklet which will be guide all suspects through a set of clues  - no need to print your character descriptions.

Do I have to have acting experience to play along?
Not at all!  Your interpretation of the character is completely up to you.  It is more important that you participate; if you can act it will be an added bonus to your guest’s entertainment.

What if I can't make it on the day?
Once you have reserved your seats our cancellation and character replacement policy applies. In a nutshell: if you or one of your friends cannot make it anymore, to ensure that your game is complete you or your friend should find a substitute. If you cannot find one your game will have to go on with a missing character and our host will fill in the gaps to the best of their ability.

  • A minimum booking of 2 guests is needed is needed for the game to go ahead.
