News Bulletin 266

“Full speed ahead, engineer”*

Back on board

Our adventures resume on Sunday 27 September. Details are in Mayday Mayday (No.135), which all members would have received a copy of recently, and, hopefully, will have read by now. If you have mislaid your copy, get in touch and a duplicate will be forwarded by return.

Brief details of this sailing and the schedule for the rest of the year are available here.

Members do not have to signal their intentions to be on board – just turn up, or not. However, if it’s your first time at a RSS, please let the Purser know in advance of the day itself (This also applies if you require additional directions to the location).


ACD in parts

There’s a new Part Work out – The Complete Conan Doyle Collection. Part 1 costs £1.99, for which you get a book (the first one is The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) and a magazine. Details of the Collection are here or, if you prefer, there’s also a short video

Part 2 (£4.99) is The Hound of the Baskervilles. The normal price is £7.99 – available in store at Easons, WH Smith and other outlets.  


Curious on tour

Based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (still playing in London’s West End) is on a UK/Ireland tour until November. This will include a week at Belfast’s Grand Opera House from 13-17 October. Watch the official trailer here.


Cinemagic Holmes

In case you didn’t see Bulletin 265,  this is to let local crew know that Young Sherlock Holmes (1985) is showing at QFT Belfast on Sun 11 Oct at 4.00pm, as part of Cinemagic: International Film & Television Festival for Young People. The  screening is open to the general public and is not age restricted. Book here or at QFT.
