In our 65th episode Amy, Ashley and Maria are joined by the initiator and director of the Sherlock Prom, Matthew Sweet. The currently sold out Sherlock Prom will be held on August 16 in London’s Royal Albert Hall – but fear not, 1000 standing tickets will be available on the day of the event and the concert will be broadcast live via BBC Radio 3 and will be available on the iPlayer afterwards. 

We’re chatting with Matt about Sherlock Holmes and music – about the musical choices Doyle made in the stories, the importance of the violin to Sherlock Holmes and how the different adaptations include Holmes’s musical tastes and interests. After this interview, we are even more excited for the event than we were before!
