Murder Mystery Nights at The Fitz
What a night: A tailor-made murder mystery at The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast is perfect for corporate team building, anniversaries, birthdays, and hen or stag parties.
It’s one of the more unusual things to do in Belfast, but it’s really good fun. There’s lots of choice here – from a medieval mystery to investigate or a James Bond style adventure.
It all starts in the Boardroom which is the murder scene. If you’ve never seen it, this is a really impressive room suspended above the lobby with a glass wall and its own lounge area.
Up to 22 people sit down to dinner and are given a list of characters, each with detailed background personalities. Four professional actors join you for dinner as they play different roles and mingle with guests with scenes acted out between courses. You and your fellow guests can pick up clues as dinner progresses, establishing a motive and solving the mystery by the end of the night.
