Parties and Events

Do you have something to celebrate coming up, or do you just simply want an excuse to have fun with friends and family? Then why not have a Forensic Minds party and indulge in your fantasy to be a Crime Scene Investigator for the evening? We offer childrens’ and adults’ parties for all occasions, just tell us what you want and we will deliver a fun and fully immersive party, where you can dress up and catch the criminal! Our events can be at any venue, anywhere, even at home if you wished!

Although each event will be tailored to your requirements, we do have a typical outline of what your event could look like:

N

We arrive an hour before your event to set up and bring all necessary equipment with us.

N

Each participant will receive their own CSI outfit (suit, gloves & mask) to wear during the event and to take home afterwards.

N

Each participant will examine the crime scene and exhibits, retrieving any physical trace evidence they locate along the way.

N

And finally, there may also be a need to interview suspects, review CCTV evidence or listen to tape recordings.

N

Our experts will teach you the science behind fingerprints and you will see this come to life as you each take a full set of your own fingerprints and learn how to powder and lift finger marks using real life CSI materials.

N

Before entering the crime scene, you will be briefed on the details of the case and have a chance to analyse police and witness statements to help you solve the crime.

You may also carry out various aspects of forensic tests including fingerprinting & ballistic testing through to blood splatter, hair and fibre analysis.
