Two Days To Go To The Great Sherlock Holmes Debate

There are just two days to go to The Great Sherlock Holmes Debate and we’ve been practising with the on-line technology with the team captains. As we have two podcast presenters (Kristina and Burt) and an actor (Nick) we have to admit that our chairperson (Steve from MX Publishing) is the one feeling the pressure of presenting live – he has the easy task of making the introductions though.

The presentations are looking amazing. The effort that has gone in from the teams is quite incredible – many late nights and weekends alongside busy schedules and we now can’t wait until the event itself. There are several resources for fans ahead of the debate:

  •  Always 1895 our press man Matt Laffey has been delivering detailed articles on the debate and more to follow this week
  • The Great Sherlock Holmes Debate Facebook Page – the place for the latest news
  • The slideshare site where you can find the introduction presentations for each team and where we will be putting the debate presentations after the debate is over – Slideshare Site

The team captains will be talking a lot about the debate on Facebook in the coming 48 hours – Baker Street Babes, I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere and Big Finish Productions.

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).

First Press Pass goes to Always 1895 for the Great Sherlock Holmes Debate

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).
