About Torchlight Mysteries

Everyone Loves a Mystery… and Torchlight Mysteries like nothing more than creating heritage themed events. We work with heritage locations across the country to establish immersive events and activities that offer challenging mysteries and puzzles.


From the Casebook: Sherlock Holmes and Festival of Christmas

As part of the Festival of Christmas in 2017, ​Sherlock Holmes recruited Irregulars on the streets of the Dockyard with a little help from Torchlight Mysteries. Six suspects were responsible for stealing one of the Orders of Chivalry and it was the ‘Irregulars’ responsibility to find out what happened. Luckily Holmes and Watson were on hand to point out where everyone was going wrong. Hundreds of people signed up and played during the three day Christmas Festival.

The site-wide immersive mystery was commissioned by the Dockyard to encourage people to explore the entire site. Live action actors and online tools allowed players to get into the heart of the action, searching the stalls and markets for our suspects. Once they collected all the information and made their conclusions they could find Holmes and Watson to confirm their deductions. Feedback was excellent with many parents saying it was the entire focus of their visit while their children dragged them around the site looking for suspects. All the suspects agreed the children were asking by far the hardest questions!
