SHERLOCK HOLMES COMES TO GEELONG!

Sherlock Holmes has appeared in more plays, books and films than any other fictional character.

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.
