Join the Society
The Society is open to anyone with an interest in Sherlock Holmes, Dr John H. Watson and their world. We organise numerous fun, interesting and educational events throughout the year and we always welcome new members to our society.
The Society's shop sells a range of items for those interested in the world of Sherlock Holmes. Products include merchandise such as ties, watches and cufflinks and fascinating publications produced by the society and our much loved Christmas cards.
The Society welcomes three new Honorary Members!
I am sorry to have to tell you that the Society’s Annual Dinner will not be held in January 2021.
Every year the Society seeks to bring to Holmes enthusiasts an annual Christmas Card that illustrates the spirit of the season with a Sherlockian flair. This year we sought the artistic talent of Holmesians from all around the world with a Christmas Card art contest.
The Society welcomes Paul Gillings as the new Merchandising Officer following the retirement of Bob Ellis.
