With well over 1,000 journalists from around the world reading the Great Sherlock Holmes Debate press release, and dozens of enquiries, it has been a tough decision on where the first press pass for the debate would go. Should we go mass-readship, or specialist Holmes?
In the end we opted to go with a Victorian and Holmes specialist. Always 1895 has garnered a strong following built on the highly detailed articles on Holmes that come out weekly. We also have assurances that they will display Holmes and Watson esque detective skills tracking down the stories behind the teams and team members.
We envisage handing out another three of four press passes, so if you’d like the inside scoop from the Sherlock Holmes event of the decade so far (yes, ok so we are only a year into the new decade but nevertheless…) then get in touch with us with your press credentials.
There will be 80 general public audience places given away to the members of the Great Sherlock Holmes Debate Facebook page which stands currently at around 200 members.
Please remember the debate is supporting two important causes – Save Undershaw and BAFTA for Jeremy Brett - please check out their sites and join their pages on Facebook (Undershaw Trust on Facebook).
