Sherlocked: The Official Sherlock Convention will be taking place at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre from 24th – 26th April 2015 and is organised by Massive Events Ltd, in association with Hartswood Films and Showmasters Ltd.
Joining Benedict on the guest list are series co-creator Mark Gatiss (Mycroft Holmes), series co-creator and writer Steven Moffat and series producer Sue Vertue. From behind the scenes award winning production designer Arwel Jones will also be on hand to share behind the scenes secrets and insights.

The three day event will feature a packed programme of activities that includes displays of sets used on the show, including 221b Baker Street, an exhibition of genuine props and costumes, plus, for the first time ever, an exclusive museum that details John Watson’s army past and more. Two talk stages will be hosting Q&As with the guests, behind the scenes presentations, fan panels, episode screenings with special introductions and the Sherlock Observation Quiz which promises to test the fans to the limit. SFX and Make-up demonstrations will also feature, as well as Stunt Demonstrations to show the fans how some of the most memorable scenes were created.

All the very latest Sherlock merchandise will be available to browse or buy, as well as the chance to own your very own piece of Sherlock memorabilia with the Big Sherlock Auction.
