The Sherlock Holmes Society of London

The London Mini-Festival Weekend


The Society is continuing its tradition of putting on a weekend of Sherlockian events in London. All members and their guests are cordially invited - we hope you will find something of interest. As always, we have done our best to keep costs to a minimum. Inevitably London, like all capital cities, is expensive. It is, however, where Holmes and Watson lived and worked and there is, therefore, absolutely nowhere like it!

Full details of all events can be found listed below

Latest issue summary

Sherlock Holmes Radio Shows

The Strange Case of Miss Alice Faulkner While rewriting Conan Doyle's script, the American actor William Gillette famously asked, "May I marry Holmes?" The author replied, "You may marry or murder, or do what you like with him!" The resulting play was first staged in 1899 and has lasted for more than a century. Gillette himself recorded an abridged version in 1935, for the Lux Radio Theater. Three years later Orson Welles adapted the play as an hour-long drama for the Mercury Theater on the Air, in which he took the leading role, giving a remarkable impersonation of Gillette.
