Fun at Fareham

Fun at Fareham

On 28th October I spent a wonderful afternoon at the Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham, to take part in a Crime Fact/Crime Fiction event as part of the Darkfest festival. There were three panels of writers and experts on crime, as well as two wonderful ten-minute presentations by The Theatre of Dark Encounters featuring notorious local crimes of the nineteenth century. Blackwells bookshop kindly provided a table for book sales and I am pleased to say did a roaring trade! I do hope this event is repeated as it was both fun and fascinating.

 

Special thanks to William Sutton and Diana Bretherick and all the team at the lovely Ashcroft Arts Centre
