Masks worn during briefing, temperature checks on arrival. Customers and employees are not to attend if have any symptoms.

About Ben

In the world of escape rooms, Evidence Room founder Ben is a ‘long time listener, first time caller’, but you can be sure that the call will be long and rambling, regularly derailed by a tangent or a metaphor that takes it far away from the long forgotten point of the call, a little bit like this bio…

When he’s not tracking down obscure props, he can be found in the pub watching the mighty/feeble (delete according to stage of season) Arsenal.

When visiting The Evidence Room, be sure to ask to see what socks Dan is wearing; he’ll be more than happy to show off his proud collection.

Dan is looking to get into the world of social media management, with the dream of becoming a moderator for his beloved Chelsea (a true trophy winning football team).

About Emma

When asked to write her bio, Emma noticed that all her colleagues had mentioned sports teams, and raised the question “can pizza be my sports team?” To which we answered: Absolutely!

In her spare time (when not eating pizza), Emma enjoys making improvements to her Animal Crossing island, watching Hamilton on repeat, and attempting to break her personal best Rubik’s Cube time.
