About the event


The line up has been assembled. The potentials are sharpening their weapons… (well, carefully thought out arguments at the very least). The hunt is on. Heroes. Degenerates. Criminal masterminds.

Who is the literary character from crime fiction, old or new, that has outwitted, outsmarted and outshone the rest?

Are you as sharp as Sherlock? As perceptive as Poirot? Do you love a good murderous Val McDermid to curl up with at night? If so, grab your trusty sidekick and join us for a night of fancy dress, rowdy debate, murder mystery and besoke music; all within the statley and historic backdrop of The Woodthorpe Hotel.

Compered by the talented local writer and humorist, Adam Farrer, this evening of mystery, frivolity and laughter, will have you cheering along your favourite literary crime hero (or villain?) and solving crimes, whilst enjoying a bespoke playlist curated by Gang of Five.

Ages 18+
