From Deadly Waterfalls to Deadly Cocktails

The Museum of London is about to investigate one of London's most famous literary characters, and it is inviting you to go along on the adventure. There will be talks, tours, cocktails, and a bit of detective work as you explore the past, present, and future of Sherlock Holmes.

In Conversation With Anthony Horowitz
27th October, 7pm - 8.30pm, 10, 8 concessions

Three years ago the Conan Doyle estate, gave BAFTA-winning writer, Anthony Horowitz O.B.E, permission to tell a new Sherlock Holmes story. The result was House of Silk, in which an elderly Dr. Watson recounts one of Holmes's early adventures. Positive reviews encourage Horowitz to continue the journey with a sequel entitled Moriarty, set just a few days after Homes and Moriarty fall to their deaths at Reichenbach Falls. Due to be released on the 23rd October, Horowitz will talk about the new novel and follow with a book signing.

The Case of the Curious Cocktail
16th December, 7pm - 10pm, 36

Usually I don't think I'd be testing any cocktails under investigation by Sherlock Homes, but I think it might be safe this time. Foodie futurologists, The Robin Collective, will be putting on a cocktail hunt after dark. Put your deduction skills to the test to craft your own
Holmesian cocktail.

Your Comment
Hello Bryony, I think I have mastered the art of sending comments to London! Should make me a shoe-in for the Holmes Museum (more likely as an artefact). I would love to be in London for this (or for anything for that matter). I have read all the Holmes stories and didn't know two new ones have been written. I'll have to start looking out for them. Thanks for a great article. Regards, Tony
