LISA WILLETT – Customer Experience Director


Having played a few escape games with the guys, I knew we made a great team. After our first escape game experience I was addicted, so Alasdair’s idea had me literally jumping at the chance to be involved with History Mystery. For 28 years I have worked in office based roles in world-leading corporate organisations, so you imagine my new job ensuring people have fun all day long is somewhat of a change in direction!

It’s a cracking job being Game Master, where your sole purpose is to ensure that everyone has a fun and unique experience with us.  And we are very unique in that we design, research, install and then run all our own games.  Seeing smiling customers returning to play with us again makes me very happy.

There’s nothing I love more than a good party, and I’ve organised several large-scale corporate events, Christmas parties and summer socials – it’s rewarding seeing it all come together. Alasdair and I started out organising social events for my office, mainly treasure hunts around our home town of Norwich (with a big party at the end of it of course) – I couldn’t have imagined a few years later we would be doing it for real every day! Not only did we have much fun doing the research, but we learned lots about our fine city too and the History Mystery team is finding out more every day.

I purposely kept myself away from knowing the content of BODY OF EVIDENCE so I could test it – I was like the kid from the Disney advert, I literally couldn’t sleep the night before! Once we’d done it, I wanted to do it all over again. Since we started History Mystery, I don’t think there’s a night gone by yet where I haven’t dreamt about locks and codes!
