Murder Mystery Interactive Evening

What a fantastic time was had by all at the recent Murder Mystery event – “Who Killed the Hotel Manager.” The new format of cabaret-style tables and chairs allowed the audience to enjoy food and drinks while listening to the performance, searching for clues to identify the Murderer and Accomplice. With approximately 70 attendees, the hall was full, and the demand for tickets exceeded the location’s capacity.

The cast consisted of participants with little, a long time ago, or no previous experience. The format gave them confidence in their performance, and it showed many positive comments from the audience. In addition to trying to identify the guilty parties, there was a quiz based on the story and cast, adding another layer of competition to the event.

The buffet food was very well received, and the event was ably supported by the Algarveans members, with everyone pitching in to ensure a very successful event.

There has been immediate demand for a follow-up event sometime and we are sure that could well happen.

Let us have your feedback. Would you like to take part in or direct such an event?  email:

Algarveans Family Picnic with

On a sunny Saturday, July 22nd, fifty people gathered in a beautiful garden for a picnic party. They enjoyed mesmerizing performances while raising 300 Euros for APAA and The Portimão Soup Kitchen. The gracious hosts, Shirley and Andy, provided the perfect setting, and the event organizer, Paul Jokinen Carter, ensured a day of unity, compassion, and memorable charity.
