Leeds: Sherlock Holmes inspires latest club night

Have your say

THE World’s greatest detective is the inspiration for the latest Beautiful Octopus Club night, run by the Leeds Octopus Crew, with support from staff at West Yorkshire Playhouse.

From learning to DJ and film-making to creating live music and club décor – the events provide work-based training and a safe, fun and creative environment for adults with learning disabilities and their families. The team has been busy preparing for the event at Leeds University Union on Thursday. Crew from the West Yorkshire Playhouse’s Heydays section, are creating music, drama pieces and DJing in preparation for the event.

The Mystery and Magic theme is inspired by the stage show Sherlock Holmes: The Best Kept Secret, which has its premiere on the Playhouse’ Quarry stage from May 18 to June 8.
