Murder, mystery, mayhem!

Theatre is continuing on tour this month as Touring Theatre delivers a range of high-quality performances starting with Theatre Chipping Norton – Sherlock Holmes and the Crimson Cobbles.

A brand new Sherlock Holmes caper will be performed at the Sacred Heart Church (B77 2EA) on Tuesday October 17 at 7.30pm.

Holmes and Watson are called upon to investigate the Whitechapel Murders which have recently sent shockwaves through London. But when the evidence points to only one possible conclusion – that Jack the Ripper is actually Sherlock’s trusted partner Dr Watson - will Holmes believe this shocking revelation?

From the team behind the smash hit touring productions of Around the World in 80 Days, this witty, laugh-a-minute pastiche of Conan Doyle’s investigative pair takes on the story of one the darkest times in Victorian history.

This fast paced and hilarious show brings together the most famous fictional detective and infamous real-life characters for the first and only time. The performance is recommended for families and children over 12 years-old.

Tickets are priced at £8 adults, £6 concessions and £26 for group of 4 (standard tickets). Doors open at 7pm.

Touring Theatre is part of the two-year Arts in Unusual Spaces project funded in partnership with Arts Council England, Tamworth Borough Council and the local community.


It includes a number of exciting initiatives for Tamworth, designed to bring the arts to all corners of the community. More information is available at

Cllr Joy Goodall, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Environment & Culture, said: “The Touring Theatre is a brilliant project that has helped broaden the use of community venues, making it even easier for people to experience and enjoy theatre and the arts.

“Sherlock Holmes is always a detective favourite and I’m sure this production will not disappoint our super sleuth fans.”
