HOUND of the BASKERVILLES
Saturday 03 March 2018
The Mill at Sonning Lunch Theatre
Holmes and Watson’s most chilling case is brought imaginatively to the stage in the style of the West End hit – The 39 Steps. This legendary plot has been given a new life by father and son team, Simon and Tam Williams.
After a very successful visit to the Mill at Sonning for Spiders Web in August 2017, you now have the chance to re-visit and dine at this beautiful Mill at Sonning with Solent Events in March 2018.
Sir Charles Baskerville dies in mysterious circumstances. A look of fear and terror on his face. Legend has it there is a curse on the family – a curse in the form of a gigantic, ferocious, glowing Hound of Hell – that brings death to each successive head of the Baskerville family. When Sir Henry Baskerville returns from overseas to claim his inheritance and property on the treacherous terrain of darkest Dartmoor, he calls on the renowned Sherlock Holmes to help him solve the mystery of his uncle’s violent death. Is there really a revenge-seeking Hound? Or are there other evil motives at work?
The mill was empty until 1977. It was then that Tim and Eileen Richards, who had a great love of theatre, found the derelict building and decided to convert it into The Mill as it is today. The transformation took four years to complete, with the Mill at Sonning Dinner Theatre opening on 22 July 1982.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.Maureen Colyer
Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.Linda Hunt
Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery TourSue & Bert Barnes
