Have you ever wanted to borrow Mr James Phillimore's umbrella? Have you ever wanted to meet Mr Ricoletti's abominable wife? Is your favourite pet a red leech or a giant rat or a remarkable worm? If you want to know more then come to the Sherlock Holmes Society of London's March meeting.
A number of members of the Society will explain which of the unpublished stories mentioned by Dr. Watson should have been published and give the reasons why. Each speaker will have five minutes to present their arguments and at the end of the meeting, those present will be able to vote, to determine which of the nominated stories should have been published.
If you are attending the meeting and would like a five minute spot, there are one or two places left. Please let Catherine Cooke know by email at (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of February at the very latest. Include your name, your preferred unpublished story and a second unpublished story, in case your first choice has already been picked
After their talks further contributions from the floor and questions will be welcome. We will finish with a show of hands to select the favourite story for the evening. Please join us for what promises to be lively evening.
Applications should be sent to arrive not later than Thursday 15th March.
Anyone attending a Society function for the first time should bring along and display their yellow cards of introduction, so that we can identify them and introduce them to our members. They should also note that applications are not normally acknowledged nor are tickets sent. We look forward to seeing everyone on the night. If an acknowledgement is required, please provide an e-mail address or a stamped, addressed envelope with your application. Dress is smart casual and gentlemen are asked to wear a jacket and tie. As in most London clubs, tee-shirts and trainers are not acceptable. This is not our rule and we must comply with the club’s.
The Society, as part of its archiving project, maintains a photographic record of Society events and meetings which may be published either in the Society's Journal, or on the Society’s website. If you or your guest(s) do not want to appear in a Society photograph from this event/meeting please avoid being in any posed photographs and advise one of the meeting organisers.
