Following the huge success of the UK premiere of A Sherlock Carol last Christmas, this ‘winning crossover mystery’ (The Guardian) returns to Baker Street!
This critically acclaimed production has been loved by London audiences, bringing ‘a wonderful festive play to get the entire family in the Christmas spirit’ (Lost in Theatreland) that ‘entertains from start to finish’ (Broadway World).
Three Christmases since the Reichenbach Falls, Sherlock Holmes has little appetite for mince pies or for solving crime. Wandering through Victorian London, he meets a grown-up and not-so-Tiny Tim Cratchit who implores him to investigate the mysterious death of his reformed benefactor, one Ebenezer Scrooge.
An impossible murder, a threatening letter, and a missing diamond – it’s just enough to intrigue the great detective. But it’s a dark and treacherous Christmas Eve, and once again the night is haunted by the spirits of the past, present, and future. Using his powers of deduction, can Holmes overcome his own ghosts to crack the case?

Hardworking and versatile cast brought to life two well loved characters. They intertwined with a myriad of supporting players. Lively and in parts funny..it was a perfect end to the festivities. Lovely theatre and cafe with welcoming staff.

A great performance suitable for all ages. Not a pantomime but two master pieces literature put together in a thoughtful way with quotes from both that creates a funny and enjoyable night at the theatre. We all enjoyed it including my 12 year old.

A slow start to begin with but soon got there in the end. I must congratulate everyone involved, there were acting so many different parts with so few. It's definitely a show that I would recommend for all to see. I will not reveal how Sherlock solved all the cases in the END.
