Creeping and Dying in Cambridge – by a master storyteller

April 26, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


On the 26th April, in aid of the Engineer's House Appeal, Robert Lloyd Parry returns to the atmospheric surroundings of the Engine Room at Cambridge Museum of Technology, with rehearsed readings of two tales of Sherlock Holmes.

In 'The Creeping Man', Holmes and Watson are summoned to 'Camford' to get to the bottom of the strange behaviour of a respected academic. In 'The Dying Detective' the great detective faces perhaps the greatest adversary of his career…

Anyone familiar with Robert Lloyd Parry's superb recounting of M R James's ghost stories, or his amazing one-man performance of The Time Machine by H G Wells, will be keen to experience his presentation of these late adventures of the Great Detective.

Refreshments will be available to purchase before the start of the show and during the interval between readings.

The Museum is based in Cambridge's former pumping station which has uneven surfaces and can be cold at night, so wear sensible shoes and wrap up warmly.

Tickets are £12 each, and the event is suitable for ages 11 and up.
