Valentines Day in London

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep;
The more I give to thee, The more I have,
For both are infinite.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

If you’re planning a special occasion, let our VIP team help make your day one to remember.

The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes. Hoxton Hall, 130 Hoxton Street, London, N1 6SH

Showing 10th April – 10th May 2013 Wednesday to Saturday at 7:30pm. Saturday matinees at 3:00pm. Sundays at 2:00pm and 6:00pm.

All is not as it should be at 221b Baker Street. Sherlock Holmes has become a trifle bored. The watery demise of his archenemy Moriarty has left him bereft. His assistant, Dr. Watson, is away with the fairies and his disgruntled housekeeper, Mrs Hudson, is, well, … she’s growing increasingly neurotic in her quest to find a man.
Just the right time for a lost dog and a call from the grave to lure our pillar of London society into a perilous web of mystery, unlike any he has encountered before.
Set amid the colourful and vibrant world of the Victorian Music Hall, against the backdrop of the stunning Hoxton Hall, The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes will be a musical spectacular like no other.

Showing live shows every day of the week, London boasts the biggest commercial theatre scene in the world – over 14 million visitors last year spent just under $1 billon in ticket sales.

The longest running play in the world is Agatha Christie’s Continue reading
