18th August | 6:30pm – 7:30pm | £12/£10 | In-Centre

How likely is it that the genius who created the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, should be duped by a pair of children?

Yet this is seemingly what happened when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fell for the infamous Cottingley fairy hoax. But was there more to this event than a mere children’s prank?

Join F.R. Maher, for the story behind her play, Sherlock Holmes and The Man Who Believed in Fairies as she redeems Conan Doyle’s reputation and uncovers the layers of deception that ensnared this extraordinary man.
