Red House Mysteries was started by Mark Nicholls and Ben Pering to create large scale treasure hunts combining elements of puzzles, exploration, immersive narrative and out-of-the-box thinking for groups of any size. We are now moving on to create more focused theme events and escape rooms designed to capture all these elements at their best.


Mark Nicholls

With this mind for drama, a deft hand with design and style and past experience working in event planning, he is ideally placed to be the man who creates the world of Red House’s adventures, filling them with drama and intrigue..
