Don’t ask us though - have a look at what some of our players have had to say:


In Case Of Emergency

“The game was great, really varied and well paced, whenever you started to feel that maybe you were a bit stuck a new piece of information or useful hint was on hand, the clues were really imaginative. Organising the event in the lead up to the day was really well done and i appreciated your quick response to my emails and the level of contact was just right. The game was certainly the highlight of the day. Thank you so much for making it so special and memorable.”

“Thank you so much…[the actor] was fantastic and the activity worked really well. The organisation of it, both in advance, and on the day was very smooth which made my life easy. All of my colleagues have said how much they enjoyed it and it certainly provided some light relief from the leadership stuff we had done in the morning!”

Murder Most Fowl

“It was brilliant to see just how into it everybody got...and it was such a wonderful way to get my different sets of friends chatting and laughing. It was a totally perfect evening of silliness and exceeded my expectations of how a private game would work. Just joyful - thank you.”

“Thanks so much for the brilliant event. It was so much fun for all and got us all putting the little grey cells to the test :) the actors really were the icing on the cake and just got us all being that much more competitive! We will definately use you guys again for team building (And personal events)  - thanks for a great day!”

The Final Bid

“It was brilliant!  Such a well-thought through evening ... it felt like a real spy game!  We've been telling everyone about A Door in a Wall since and hopefully we can do another mystery with you soon!”

“The event was a great success and everyone had fantastic feedback from the innovative set up to the location and challenges. From our side this works perfectly for a networking event for both clients and internal teams.”

Bespoke Comission

“It really was an exceptional event – feedback...has all been entirely positive. I can only thank [ADIAW] for such brilliant service from start to finish, and we really see you as a safe pair of hands for meeting the expectations of our various audiences, which can't always be said for third party suppliers, so we'll certainly be in touch to discuss future events. I honestly can't talk highly enough about A Door in a Wall, thank you again!”
