Roaring 20's Party

The Roaring 20’s

The scene is set for an all night party at an underground speakeasy.  Rose Ford, the famous movie star, has organised a gathering with her closest friends.  It will certainly be a night to remember!


“Katy threw the most amazing 1920's murder mystery event for our quarterly meet. Amazing communication, outgoing personality and very organised, Twist Events took all the hassle and stress out of throwing an event everyone is still talking about. I'd highly recommend Katy and Twist.”

Red Carpet Murder Mystery.jpg

Murder on the Red Carpet

It’s the Moscars, the largest annual event in the NZ film industry.  An evening of glamour and showbiz, all the biggest names will be there.  Lurking in the background of Simon Snellberg’s latest horror film is a real-life drama that he does not want to be leaked.


“Awesome fun - highly recommended!  The mixed groups meant that people who don't work together day to day got put together and had the chance to interact at a fun level.”

Wild West Party.jpg

The Wild West

It’s 1870 on the American frontier and the locals of Cripple Creek are gathering for the “Annual Cripple Creek Dance”.  Everyone is looking forward to a good hoe down and in true Wild West style, the guns are drawn and the lassoes are swinging.


“Thank you so much Katy, you were so easy to deal with and everyone had a blast!!! I totally recommend Twist Events for your function, it was so much fun!”

Mafia Murder Mystery.jpg

The Mobfather

It’s the opening night of a local restaurant which has drawn a mixed crowd with some rather unsavoury guests. As always, when the mafia is involved, there is bound to be some sort of drama.


“Thank you so much for everything!  The crew had a really good time and are still talking about it.”

Russian Party.jpg

From Moscow with Love

 It’s the “Wild 90’s” in Moscow, communism is at an end and the country is in crisis with endless gang wars and political corruption. A Russian gang baron called Boris Smirnov has just been released from prison but not everyone is happy about his return.

"It was a great night Katy and we appreciated your excellent planning and execution.  Everyone enjoyed it and the venue.  Thanks for making our evening such a resounding success."

A Christmas Sleighing

“A big thank you for our Christmas Party, we had a fantastic time and I love that everyone got super involved and into it! Way better than we could have expected!”

Yacht Club Murder Mystery.jpg

Y Knot at the Yacht Club

The president of the yacht club doesn't quite make it to the annual regatta.  He is found tied up and gagged.  Who had it in for him and why?


“Everyone had a brilliant time – some even said it was one of the best events they’d been to! Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to have a murder mystery event.”

Who Said Nothing Happens in Bakersville?

It's the 1950's and in the small town of Bakersville, things are running awry.  Some residents have painted their picket fences the wrong colour and others are not mowing their lawns according to regulatory standards. In amongst it all, the perfect murder is committed. 


“Thanks for an amazing night, everyone loved it.  Unique idea for a work Christmas party and a heap of fun. Would recommend to anyone wondering what to do for a work gathering or dinner party!"

Disco Fever

The party is swinging at the 1980's club, "Disco Heaven".  The fluro is out in force, the stilettos are strutting and everyone is out to have a great night. Somewhere in the dark corners of the club, some bad vibes are hanging around and it's up to the disco dancers to work it all out.    


“What an excellent event. I liked the interaction, it got people mingling and mixing outside their usual work/social groups. Thanks for being a great host, it was lots of fun."

- Uno Loco


Back to School Disco

It's the Class of 1993's school disco. This party has it all - the bogans, the rugby jocks, the cheerleaders and the prefects - there's a role for everyone!  One of the guys never quite makes it, where is he and who is responsible?   


“Thank you for hosting such a fun afternoon.I know the whole team enjoyed themselves. The event overall was exciting and was great for team building. It really brought people out of their shells too."
