Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes

(l-to-r) Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes

After the success of The Hound of the Baskervilles, and Dracula, Rain or Shine are dying to bring you yet another fantastic evening of entertainment with their own individual comedic style. The dynamic duo return to solve one of the Victorian era’s biggest mysteries. Sherlock Holmes and The Curious Case of Dr Jekyll & Miss Hyde.

This winter join Sherlock Holmes, together with his trusty sidekick Watson, and watch a case unfold that is less elementary, and more fantastical than ever before. Hailed as ‘a delicious mirthfest’ Rain or Shine will once again be reinventing the classic Sherlock Holmes characters using their now signature ‘Morecambe & Wise-ish comedy’ style for another season of mystery, mayhem, but above all multi-role madness! Set in authentic Victorian costume, with a cast of four playing a whole host of characters, Rain or Shine are sure to delight and enchant those new to the tale, and those who already know it.

This is an indoor performance and will be held in the visitor centre. Tickets priced £10 (child £6) are available from the venue: tel 01746 781192, or direct from the Rain Or Shine credit card hotline: 03306 600541, email tickets@rainorshine.co.uk or online via www.rainorshine.co.uk.
