Progressive Resources is launching its new Celebrity Murder Mystery event (stand no E19) at this year's Eventful Expo, Bournemouth International Centre 17th & 18th October 2006.
This star studded event brings actors from soap operas and dramas like Eastenders, Hollyoaks and Holby City to a chosen venue to enact a murder scene for guests to solve.
Celebrities including Jeremy Edwards who plays Danny in Holby City, Natalie Casey from Two Pints of Lager and Ben Hull famous for his role as Lewis in Hollyoaks, play characters in a murder plot.
The scenes, which vary according to the chosen plot, take place between dinner courses allowing guests to observe carefully. Each table questions the celebrities to eliminate suspects to reach their verdict of 'whodunit'.
James Coakes, Managing Director of Progressive Resources and creator of the Celebrity Murder Mystery event comments:
- "Our Murder Mystery event is extremely popular therefore I decided to give it an extra twist by inviting celebrities to act out the parts.
This makes it more exciting and special as guests can come face to face with a star from their favourite soap opera or TV programme. Using celebrities will add a real 'wow' factor and create a real buzz.
I'm imagining lots of cries of, 'I recognise him, 'he plays what's his name in and lots of pointing"
In addition to launching the Celebrity Murder Mystery event, Progressive Resources will also be exhibiting their other newly released event, The Parmesan Job.
Based on the well known film The Italian Job, teams get into character and are given new Mini Coopers to drive around an adventure rally.
Teams are presented with challenges such as breaking into a hidden van and cracking open a safe. Shady characters hinder and help each team as they uncover the criminal trail.
