Fandom_Wank Report from the Murder Mystery

The Sherlock Holmes fandom are at it again. For such a tiny fandom, they sure seem to find a lot to wank about.

Another Fabulous Picnic Over
Thank you so much to everyone that came on Saturday, I really hope you had as much fun as I did. Congratulations to Team Lestradios for winning the murder mystery, and to those who won the food competition - and everyone who brought themed food, actually. Judging that was really hard.

Several people have been asking of we'll put up bits from the murder mystery. I'll put the Fandom Wank report up in a moment, but you may have to wait for the rest, as it's possible it's going to be run again, and I don't want to put the answers up all over the internet and spoil it.

If anyone was interested in a list of people who were present, one of the people who took a list of URLs at dinner has put the list up on Tumblr, here.

Hope to see you all again next year (date to be announced soonish).

Two Weeks To Go!
I know, I can't believe it either. I hope you're all getting excited. Are you thinking of cosplaying? Are you creating a culinary masterpiece for the Sherlockian food competition?

Most importantly, have you signed up to the Doodle Poll:

All our plans are coming together, and my flat is beginning to fill with prizes and other exciting things. Let's all just keep hoping this good weather lasts, yes?

Summer is here!
In an astonishing turn of events the sun is actually shining in England. Preparations are afoot and this year’s SHPicnic is just around the corner.

12 noon 20 July at The Bandstand in Regents Park

We’ve marked the bandstand on this map along with some nearby places where you can buy food if you need to. Bring a packed lunch and be prepared to...

Win fabulous prizes!

Once again we’ll be running the Sherlock related food competition. Doesn’t matter if it’s sweet or savoury or a bit of both - as long as it’s Sherlock themed you could win!

Murder Mystery

Because what’s a Sherlock picnic without a bit of murder thrown in? Starting at 2pm you will get the chance to show off your deduction skills and catch a murderer (you may want to bring a notebook to take notes). There are yet more fabulous prizes for any team that gets it right.

Busy during the day? Join us later

There will be a pub quiz just after 5pm at The Metropolitan bar near Baker Street Tube Station and dinner at Baker Street Pizza Express at about 7pm so if you can’t make the whole day feel free to join in then. Both places are marked on the map.


Very important, go to our doodle poll here to sign up ESPECIALLY if you’re coming for dinner as we will be pre-booking. If you later find out you can’t make it please go back and untick so we have an accurate number.

Find us on twitter as @shpicnic for the most up to date details.

I look forward to seeing you all there!
