FAQS

HOW DOES IT WORK?

YOU ARRIVE AT THE STARTING LOCATION AT YOUR CHOSEN TIME (12PM OR 3PM). WE'LL CHECK YOUR TICKETS, REGISTER YOUR TEAM NAME AND GIVE YOU AN INTRODUCTION TO THE MURDER MYSTERY.

 

ONCE YOU LEAVE THE STARTING LOCATION, YOU HAVE 2 HOURS 15 MINUTES TO EXPLORE THE AREA GATHERING EVIDENCE, SOLVING PUZZLES AND INTERACTING WITH CHARACTERS. DON'T PANIC - YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A TRAINED DETECTIVE - WE'LL GIVE YOU SOME LEADS TO BEGIN YOUR ENQUIRIES.

 

WHEN TIME IS UP, YOU HEAD TO THE FINISH LOCATION WHERE YOU'LL HAVE THE CHANCE TO REVEAL THE TRUTH TO THE AUTHORITIES - AND THEY'LL LET YOU KNOW IF YOU’VE CRACKED IT.
 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

A CHARGED SMARTPHONE AND A PEN WILL COME IN HANDY. WE ALSO RECOMMEND SOME SENSIBLE FOOTWEAR AS YOU’LL BE OUT AND ABOUT FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS. OH, AND BRING YOUR BEST SLEUTHING SKILLS. OBVIOUSLY.

IS THIS A TEAM GAME?

IT'S ALWAYS FUN TO PLAY AS A TEAM BUT THERE ARE NO FORMAL LIMITS ON TEAM SIZE. YOU CAN BE A SOLO SLEUTH OR A GROUP FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.

WHAT'S 'A MELODY FOR MURDER' MOST LIKE?

IMAGINE THE CRYSTAL MAZE, SOME ESCAPE ROOM PUZZLES, A SCAVENGER HUNT, A TEAM OF LIVE ACTORS AND A MURDER MYSTERY ALL GOT TOGETHER. WITH A TIMER. THAT. IT'S PRETTY DAMN FUN.

the story

Multi-millionaire singer, Stella Chord - the voice like no other - had been rehearsing The Bel Canto Melody for her 100th concert at
The Hexagon. But she never reached the final bars. Police suspect

the dramatic finish to the piece wasn't quite what she had in mind.

A lighting rig has been tampered with, suspicious characters ask to meet with you urgently - and despite the tragic events that have occurred, there's someone who seems unusually pleased. 

The tempo is high as you race around Reading to catch
the culprit, gathering evidence and discovering
hidden clues as you play a melody for murder.

A Melody for Murder is a timed murder mystery treasure
hunt that sends teams of intrepid detectives around the
streets of Reading, allowing players to discover hidden
secrets and crack the case in an intriguing new way.​
You will need a smartphone to complete some clues.
