Sherlock and Watson: A Murder in the Garden

“Watson, I’m sorry to say but they are dead, murdered, killed! This will be our toughest investigation yet, get my coat and my hat!”

When a body is mysteriously found lying in the middle of Landsdown Manor Gardens, the police have no option but to call on Sherlock Holmes and persuade him to take on his toughest case to date. With his loyal assistant Watson, our nation’s top detective duo battles through baddies and villains to discover who is behind the murder in the garden.

Brought to you by award-winning comedy troupe Calf 2 Cow (The Jabberwocky), this brand-new adaption is an outrageous comedy full of slapstick, multi-rolling and of course pumped full of live music and rock n roll.

Celebrating all of Sherlock’s wonder, mixed with a fresh take on a brand new tale, this will certainly be a comical night out that will leave you smiling.

Suitable for ages 12 plus – There will be blood…
