The James Bond spoof murder mystery "The Spy Who Killed Me" is over. We ran the event on the 2nd October and raised £606 for the M.S. Society.
It goes without saying that my biggest thanks need to go to all those who took part in the event, our sponsors and of course all the guests who helped make the evening such a success!
Oddly after all enormous amount of work that went into running the murder mystery, the planning, the ton of letters, frantic calls to various people to help advertise the event, organising ticket sales, rehearsals and hours on the telephone - it hasn't actually put me off running another. And I'm hoping to book another charity event in March - planning starting now of course.
The murder mystery went off without a hitch. We had 3 correct answers from 112 guests, which means there were just three out of a hundred with a devious mind like myself! It's good to know I'm in a minority!
The only dissappointment in the evening was the pre-booked buffet which didn't seem to stretch around all the guests as I'd expected. However, having chatted with the Manager of the hotel the morning afterwards, I have every confidence I can fix that problem for March to make that night even better.
