The delightful Norwood House Hotel was the grand setting for the group from Shell to be treated to their mysterious Indoor Events Christmas Luncheon of Murder Mystery Entertainment, and so began “T’was the Death before Christmas" After a delightful drinks reception the would be Shell Sleuths took their seats in preparation for their Christmas lunch and after a brief introduction as to the format of the day our suspects burst into the room and the teams got serious, picking apart the stories of some fiendishly talented actors and investigating the sequence of events that lead to the terrible events in "T’was the Death Before Christmas"... all in the course of enjoying a fabulous lunch as the teams battled their wits with tables known as the Dead Santa’s, Snow White and her Seven Dwarfs, Coneheads and Cliff Ho Ho Ho table got down to solving the murder of Santa !

The Murder Mystery kicked off with a bang as the guests were introduced to Betty Buchanan, Lieutenant Billy Buchanan and Uncle Bing Buchanan and played out the mystery plot to their luncheon guests as well as reveal their devious exploits. As the action unfolded there were more red herrings on offer than even Jamie Oliver could handle and we were kept on our toes trying to figure out ‘whodunnit.’ The fantastic actors transported us into a world of love, passion and revenge, tinsel and fake beards and we didn’t even have to leave our seats. As the first act closed and the actors took their seats at the tables it was up to our talented teams of detectives to interrogate the suspects and piece together the fragmented clues that would lead them to the picture perfect accusation.

There was much friendly competition and plenty of hilarious moments as the teams battled it out to figure out the truth. As the lunch performance drew towards a close it was time for the final accusations to be made and with most of the teams being all in a muddle and so taking last place and claiming the Wooden Spoon were the table known as Coneheads – just look at their photographs!, success seemed to get further and further away as the wine flowed and the banter heightened. We managed to edge closer to the truth in this devious Murder Mystery plot as the Snow White and her Seven Dwarfs table answer was as convoluted as an episode of Miss Marple but at least their answer was somewhat plausible. Then in second place came Cliff Ho Ho Ho and their accusation that was bang on the money. As we watched the final act of the drama and saw the truth unfold before our eyes our winners were jubilant as Table The Dead Santa’s were then presented with the Team Challenge Company Winner’s Trophy- who knew!.

As we got ready to leave there was time to thank Seonaidh for all of her hard work and effort in putting the luncheon and entertainment together for us all to enjoy and for Ryan for keeping everyone in order on the day . After the great afternoon of Indoor Team Building with Team Challenge Company we are sure that the teams are all swatting up on their detective stories and watching Columbo to be prepared for the next instalment of the drama.
