Sherlock Holmes returns in 'The Case of the Circumstantial Covenant'

• Oct 20, 2017 at 11:00 AM

CAMBRIDGE — The game’s afoot as world-renowned detective, Sherlock Holmes, returns to Cambridge on Nov. 3 and 4 to solve the mystery of “The Case of the Circumstantial Covenant” during the city’s 10-week holiday celebration, Dickens Victorian Village.

The famous detective, accompanied by his indispensable sidekick, Dr. Watson, will join a shady cast of characters at St. Benedict’s social hall to solve a case.

Join your fellow “partners in crime” for an exciting evening on Nov. 3 as the case begins to take shape. Holmes faces a personal crisis as he and the good doctor attempt to unravel a web of lies woven by a potential black widow. Is it possible that the mysterious woman who shows up at 221B Bakers St. in London is who she claims to be? And what of the boy? The dynamic duo of the Victorian Era will risk all to uncover the truth - as strange as it may be. For as Holmes says, “Once you eiiminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

The evening includes desserts, coffee, and tea. Registration and seating begin at 7:30 p.m. with the start of the ‘problem’ occurring at 8:30 p.m.

The game continues on Nov. 4. Participants will return to the meeting place for Act II of the mystery, where a hearty brunch is served along with Mr. Holmes, Dr. Watson, and the full cast of characters.

Participants are encouraged to get into the spirit by donning Victorian attire and wandering Cambridge’s picturesque streets in search of clues to solve the mystery and win the grand prize. Participants will follow a map to sites that have certain ‘pre-placed’ clues.

The murder-mystery weekend will take place Nov. 3-4 . For ticket pricing and reservations, log on to VisitGuernseyCounty.com or call the VCB office at 800-933-5480.
