The Detective Project team were incredible. They were super well organised, extremely engaging and a pleasure to work with. Their attention to detail was amazing and they were not only patient with the children, they were interesting and fun!
University Summer School
The workshop was fantastic, thank you!
Students rated your workshop 4.6/5 and when talking about what they enjoyed most during the day, two students wrote about the crime scene investigation, one of them said; ‘The murder mystery was fantastic!’
Ambassadors rated the workshop a perfect 5/5, with two of them also listing this as the student’s ‘most enjoyed’ part of the day from their perspective. They wrote: ‘Detective Workshop was super engaging and fun!’ as well as, ‘The crime scene activity was well thought through.’
From an organisers perspective, it was easy to book and you were all really helpful. We also valued how flexible and understanding you were about the numbers, as getting 16 – 18 year olds to commit to anything can be a bit of a struggle. Also, thanks to Anoushka for coming out on a Saturday evening!
Very satisfied customers all round, I’m sure we’ll be booking again.
Team building day for University of Essex
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday! We all had a great time and it was so interesting the morning just flew by. One of my colleagues said it was the best Team Building Away Day that they’ve been part of, so I just wanted to let you know and to say thanks again. S.Foster
Best party ever!
This was the best birthday party we’ve ever held or been to. My 9yr old daughter and her friends (and younger brother) loved everything about it, from the personalized Police briefing, the stories about real crimes, the science, the crime scene, the suits and the fingerprinting and dusting. Llorien was a great mix of entertainer and educator and my impression was that she was also an inspiration for the girls’ future career aspirations. Well worth the money (and even us grown ups learned something!) Huge thanks and appreciation to Louise and Llorien for sharing their real world Police detective skills in such an age appropriate, accessible and engaging fashion.
11th birthday party for boys & girls
Louise did an amazing job with my daughter’s 11th birthday party 19 10/11 years a mix of girls & boys, they all loved it, thank you
9th birthday party
A big thank you to Llorien who ran a FANTASTIC party for our daughter’s 9th birthday at our house. The ten girls were wholly absorbed and entertained. And it was refreshing to have such a different and unique theme for a party. The forensic suits were a big hit as take home gifts! I can’t recommend the party highly enough.

Thank you for our party, boys had an amazing time. I’ve had lots of great feedback, such a great idea would highly recommend it. All the best for the future and thanks again
Cub scout workshop
6th Rochford Cubs had a fantastic couple of nights with Llorien and Louise. They were fully engaged and loved every minute! Thank you to you both for giving up your time to entertain and teach our little guys the art of detection. I would fully recommend you.
A level workshop
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. I have caught up with a couple of students today and all of them have said how outstanding and beneficial it was. Although they all said it was fun, they also mentioned that career wise this was really beneficial! Thanks again, and I will definitely be in touch with regards to another session. Dan Regan
