Meet The Team Behind Murder 57
Please let me introduce myself, I am Jamie Owen, Managing Director of Murder 57 - The UK's Leading Murder Mystery Entertainment Company.
When myself, the staff and actors from Murder incorporated the Murder Experts found ourselves suddenly redundant, we decided to move forward and amalgamate and positively bring forward all the talents that we have to form Murder 57 Ltd.
I am a mother of three young children, and have worked in the industry for over 5 years now.
I specialise in Sales and Marketing, I love to research new locations for us to create Murder Mayhem and I have a real passion for Event Directing and Acting.

She loved creating and setting up new events, and working closely over this time with Jamie Owen, which has led her to change her career into a murderous one!
Coral’s primary passion is travelling, she has loved exploring 5 out of the 7 continents so far, with one of her favourite being a trip to China, where she looked after Panda’s for a month. Another passion is for charity work, working with children and adults with special needs. In 2016 she raised over £4k for various charities. One of her proudest and most precious moments came later that year when she travelled to Kenya to help at the orphanage she had been raising money for.
