Welcome to

The Detective Project

The Detective Project offers forensic science-based events that explore the way in which crime is investigated in the 21st Century.

The Detective Project’s award-winning events are based on real forensic investigation techniques and are great fun for children and adults alike.

The workshops are the perfect idea for kids parties, school activities, youth groups, grown-up parties, corporate events or team-building events.

We currently operate in and around the West Country and London & South East but go on road trips to other areas.
