Calling All Wannabe Detectives: Brighton’s Turning Into A Murder Mystery Case


Have you ever watched an episode of Sherlock or Luther and thought you could do a better job? If you’re a budding clue-hunter, you’re in luck. Thrill-seeker Tiffany Morris has been murdered in her own home on Demrise Drive, her body left lying on her kitchen floor. Who could possibly want to kill such a young, ambitious girl? It’s up to you to find out.

It’s all part of a brand-new murder mystery manhunt event, organised by CluedUpp, which is hitting the streets of Brighton for the first time this May. Dubbed as a cross between Pokemon Go and Cluedo, players will scour the city for 15 virtual hidden witnesses, solving clues, eliminating suspects, and eventually catching the real killer. It’s all run via a specially-designed Android app.

Tref Griffiths, the owner of CluedUpp, said: “Since we first started, Brighton was always going to be one of our destinations. We’ve been here on family days out on a few occasions and it’ll be a great venue for the event.”

A recent CluedUpp event in London sold out within just 5 days and an upcoming event in Manchester already has over 500 keen players lined up  – but this is the first event of its kind in Brighton and the organisers are hoping for a similarly high turn-out.

943 Brightonians have already shown an interest in unravelling the mystery, so if you’re ready to solve the case, call your Watson and assemble a team of two to six detectives ASAP!
