About this event

Imagine your guest’s surprise when a group of high-spirited pirates descend upon your function! They have just found the much-vaunted Dead Man’s Chest and they are in the mood to celebrate. 

But when the treasure is stolen from right under their noses and the Pirate Captain is shot dead, the mood quickly changes. All of a sudden you and your guests find yourselves in the middle of a pirate's court where the lies are numerous and the rules are unpredictable and unconventional to say the least. And what's more, you and your guests must find the murderer and the missing treasure in return for your lives!

This highly entertaining, hilarious murder mystery event is best enjoyed over a lunch or dinner. It is a portable show. We can present it in virtually any private venue.

It can also be done in conjunction with our outdoor team building challenge 'The Hunt for Roughbeard's Treasure' where you and your guests must find the missing treasure chest.  We run this as one seamless event for a memorable and never-to-be-forgotten afternoon and evening.
