Holmes Fest 2018 – The Return of Conan Doyle

Our mission is to raise the profile of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - and it always is a great pleasure when we see others joining in to fly the flag for our favourite Man!

Holmes Fest is back in 2018, with more events and more fun to celebrate the arrival in Portsmouth on a sunny day in late June 1882 of a young doctor by the name of Arthur Conan Doyle.
 
His stay in the town saw him become a professional writer, and it was here that he created the world greatest consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes.
 
There are 7 great events that celebrate Conan Doyle’s life in the town, crime, fiction, Victoriana and Portsmouth, with specially written stories, songs and poems. 
 
There’ll be a ghostly investigation of the King’s Theatre, Southsea, for you to take on, a talk on the origins of Sherlock Holmes’s most famous novel – The Hound of the Baskervilles – and you can finish it all off the following week with a brewery tour and silent movie, watching none other than Conan Doyle’s The Lost World .
 
Along the way there will be duelling, top hats, Steampunk goggles, cups of tea, beer, a lightshow and a prize for the best dressed Victorian.

Check out the full line-up via the link below!
