Detective board game
We have teamed up again with Strong Voices - Artswork, to inspire young people from the Young Carers Centre to devise their very own Portsmouth based detective Board Game. Produced with the help of Splodge Designs illustrators thegame is available to hire by schools and community groups.
Arthur and George Exhibition at Southsea Library
The costumes may have gone back but there is still an exhibition of Conan Doyle memorabilia relating to the George Edalji case.
Sharing Sherlock online exhibitions
As part of the Heritage Lottery funded Sharing Sherlock project 10 exhibitions were created around the city with the help of community groups.
The exhibitions are on a wide range of themes, stretching from Arthur Conan Doyle: Sporting Hero to The Lost World, and took place in local community centres.
These exhibitions provide a glimpse into the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection.
Sharing Sherlock Trail
10 locations and 10 community groups and schools all across Portsmouth's main shopping areas. Sharing Sherlock' volunteers have been devising the 'thread' which will link up all these locations: a trail which will travel from the Cascades Shopping Centre in Commercial Road to Southsea Library in Palmerston Road. Now available as a Mobile app for Android
It is 132 years since Arthur Conan Doyle arrived in Portsmouth. It was in the city he wrote his first Sherlock Holmes detective novel, A Study in Scarlet and a star was born.
We have created activity sheets for children to have fun with as they learn about this popular detective.
