Save Undershaw Freeze
On April 21, 2012 we, in partnership with @ReichenBex, hosted a meet up in support of Save Undershaw (www.saveundershaw.com), which has been trying to save the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the Sherlock Holmes stories and much more. At the time the house was being threatened to be developed into flats, the integrity of the home and its history being destroyed. Undershaw was protected from that plan following this flashmob and a court case. It has since been bought to become a school for children with special needs, and the history will be celebrated.
The idea was a flash mob freeze. Around 70 of us gathered onto the National Gallery terrace in London at 2PM, some holding signs, others in full Sherlockian gear (Victorian & modern alike!), and then froze for five minutes.
Tourists and locals alike took notice, were confused, and then were enlightened. It was an amazing.
