SHERLOCK HOLMES COMES TO GEELONG!

Sherlock Holmes has appeared in more plays, books and films than any other fictional character. Cenarth ‘Ken’ Fox knows a bit about Mr Holmes, having written three plays and five books about Sherlock and staged his ‘Sherlockian’ show over 200 times to adults and children. In this family friendly show you’ll meet Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes, Watson and Moriarty, the schoolboy Sherlock Holmes and Lord Byron and witness the detective skills performed by Sherlock Holmes. Fox is narrator and storyteller and - as Sherlock - proves that ‘truth is indeed stranger than fiction’.

REMEMBERING THE END: A TOURING EXHIBITION

This special exhibition, developed from the Geelong Heritage Centre's Archive Collection, has been created to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice Day on 11 November 1918. The exhibition explores many themes including the reactions to the end of WWI, peace celebrations, welcoming home the men and women returning from war and life after WWI for people in our region. Remembering the End will appeal to students from upper primary and all secondary levels as it explores local WWI ANZAC involvement and the impact of WWI on our local communities.
