Lecture: Superhero Sherlock Holmes

The inaugural lecture of Professor Neil McCaw, lecturer and professor of Victorian Literature & Culture at Winchester University, part of a celebration of the heritage and legacy of the great author and his life. It will be followed by refreshments and an opportunity to tour the home of the recently renovated building of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. No need to book. For more information visit the website www.steppingstones.org.uk.

These events are run by school volunteers and there is a discretionary donation of £10.00 on the evening to meet costs and support the work of Stepping Stones as a special needs school. Further information can be found on the school website: /a>www.steppingstones.org.uk/Community/Conan-Doyle-Events/ or by phoning 01428-609 953. Please park either on-site (limited space) or at the designated parking on the other side of the road at Andrews who kindly let us use their premises for events.

If you want further details, here is a resume by Neil: Sherlock Holmes made his first appearance in 1887. Less than a decade later the first Holmes adaptations started to appear, and enthusiasts from all over the world had started to write to the Great Detective as if he was a real-life criminal investigator. So how was it that he so caught the public imagination, and became a feature of not just Victorian literature, but also Victorian culture and society as well? This talk will look at some of the reasons for the extraordinary rise to prominence of Sherlock Holmes in the C19th, particularly looking at the status of the character as a Victorian hero, and will trace the different ways that the figure of Holmes has been associated with ideas of heroism from that point through the C20th and C21st.

U3A Meeting: 'Dr Livingstone, I presume?', by Fran Sandham

Critically acclaimed author and public speaker, Fran Sandham, tells the remarkable story behind the famous meeting in Africa in 1871 between the two explorers Dr David Livingstone and Henry Morton Stanley: how their meeting proved to be literally the journalistic scoop of the century, the curious surrogate father-son relationship between Stanley and Livingstone, the widespread controversy and hostility Stanley faced on his return to Europe after finding Livingstone, why the meeting was such a sensational news story and why Stanley's words became the most famous greeting in history.

Haslemere Players present: The Full Monty!

This is the original American musical show, prior to the 1998 British film and The Players will be supporting local charity, The Prostate Project, with this production. This charismatic and endearing show follows the lives of six unemployed mill workers low on cash and prospects who, having seen their wives and girlfriends get seriously over-excited by an energetic performance of the infamous Chippendales, decide to present their own strip show at a local working men’s club. Their leader, Jerry, declares publicly that their show will be even better than the professional Chippendales, because they are prepared to go “The Full Monty” and strip naked on stage in front of a live audience. This show is going to be a blast. Are you ready, Haslemere! Tickets from www.haslemere hall.co.uk

Grayshott folk Club present: Harp & a Monkey

These folk experimentalists sing songs about cuckolded mole catchers, a lone English oak tree that grows at Gallipoli, care in the community and medieval pilgrims ... This harp ‘n’ banjo driven electro-folk-storytelling trio is imbued with a deep Lancashire sensibility that shines through in their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life, love and remembrance. Friends for decades, Martin Purdy, Simon Jones and Andy Smith enjoy a fantastic rapport with their audiences and are proud to have never played anywhere and not been invited back. A firm favourite of Mike Harding, who gave them their first BBC airplay, the band has since appeared in-session on the ‘Beeb’ with Mark Radcliffe and Clare Balding. Plus Jim Cozens- now living in Grayshott - singer/songwriter guitarist Jim has a varied and fascinating back story and is playing more gigs than ever. Tickets from: Grayshott Post Office, Grayshott Wine Centre and Haslemere Bookshop or call Des O'Byrne on 01428-607 096.
