The great detective is back for another game! Crammed full of adventure, mystery and of course one or two rather brilliant deductions, The Valley Of Fear, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s thrilling final Sherlock Holmes novel, is brought to life in this spectacular new stage adaptation.

A mysterious, coded message is received, a warning of imminent danger, drawing Sherlock Holmes and the faithful Dr Watson into a tale of intrigue and murder stretching from 221B Baker Street to an ancient, moated manor house to the bleak Pennsylvanian Vermissa Valley. Faced with a trail of bewildering clues, Holmes begins to unearth a darker, wider web of corruption, a secret society and the sinister work of one Professor Moriarty.

Following the extraordinary success of its 22/23 world premiere tour, Sherlock Holmes: The Valley Of Fear makes a much-anticipated return in a production that combines stylish theatricality, original music and magical story-telling for an unforgettable theatrical experience. The game’s afoot!
