Sharing Sherlock Trail
Please come and enjoy the largest exhibition we have attempted - it will take in 10 locations and 10 community groups and schools all across Portsmouth's main shopping areas, with large images of the gems of the Collection on display in each of the venues. 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. Visitors will be able to win some great prizes throughout the event if they complete the trail!
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.
