“Musings on the amusements in the Canon” A new Reichenbach Irregulars conference in alpine heights!

June 1, 2023 - June 4, 2023

The Reichenbach Irregulars of Switzerland are delighted to announce a new conference due to take place from Thursday, 1st June to Sunday, 4th June 2023 in the relaxing alpine spa resort of Leukerbad which is a spectacular 5 minutes’ cable car ride away from the dramatic Gemmi Pass and the “melancholic Daubensee”, both key locations in The Final Problem. 

Musings on the amusements in the Canon offers a unique combination of exploring Sherlockian sites that many have never seen, the “melancholic Daubensee” and the Gemmi Pass, whilst musing on the amusements in the Canon thanks to by high-calibre of speakers. Confirmed thus far are Catherine Cooke; Helen Dorey; Mark Jones; Guy Marriott; Julie McKuras, Michael Meer, Marsha Pollak; Peggy Perdue; Marina Stajić; and Mia Stampe Lagergaard. Of course, there will be “a good deal of (…) music on the program.” There will be investigations into some of “those strangest forms” that art in the blood can produce. The organizers will take a broad view of amusements, entertainment and recreation but also distraction and diversion. Art. Opera. Love.

And, yes, “the bath!”: bathing of course, will be a major feature, whether Turkish or any other kind.  The 3 days conference will take place in one of the foremost spa resorts in the Swiss alps, Leukerbad. In fact, participants will dive into canonical amusements because the venue is the spa hotel, Hotel Le Bristol, Leukerbad, a 4-star hotel that offers its guests direct access to its own spring (33 ° Celsius / 91 Fahrenheit) and an out-door and indoor 2000 m² (21500 square foot) private spa & wellness area, including thermal baths area, panorama sauna and steam bath. 

So, yes, join the almost 50 Sherlockians from across the globe who have already made a reservation. 

The 3 days / 3 nights program costs CHF 720.- per person in a double bedroom, CHF 870.- respectively for a single room per person. The price covers quasi full board including the trip to the Daubensee and Gemmi Pass.
