The 155th birthday of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is set to be celebrated in style in London with a series of events that will delight fans.

The activities will culminate in an exclusive and intimate theatre performance and author Q&A, raising funds for The National Literacy Trust and Undershaw Preservation Trust.

Conan Doyle’s birthday would have been on May 22 and, in honour of the date, the boutique hotel, Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London, and specialist Sherlock Holmes publisher MX Publishing, will be paying tribute to the renowned Scottish crime fiction writer through a fun packed programme of Sherlock themed activities.

The day’s events will kick off with a Sherlock afternoon tea party for a special Conan Doyle birthday tea party on the day.

The birthday celebrations will culminate in a unique Sherlock Holmes theatre and literary evening, with an exclusive performance of The Singular Exploits of Sherlock Holmes by world famous theatre company Don’t Go Into The Cellar, which has been selling out venues across the UK this year.

Following the performance there will be an interview and video Q&A with multi-award winning author, Diane Madsen, about her latest novel The Conan Doyle Notes – The Secret of Jack The Ripper, launching on the day.

The evening event will take place from 6.30pm at Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London.

Guests buying tickets will be raising much needed funds for the National Literacy Trust, helping to raise literacy among the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.

Money will also go to the Undershaw Preservation Trust, which has saved Conan Doyle’s former home, Undershaw in Hindhead, Surrey, after nearly 10 years of campaigning.
