Children’s Crime Busting Workshop – Lindley

Sat 27 Apr, 2:30 pm3:30 pm

About the event

Bring your young super sleuths to this fabulous Crime Busting Workshop designed for 8-11 year olds, with children’s author Gabriella Gordon. 

After an introduction to Gabriella’s Sweet Crime, Sweet Justice book, children will get a chance to work in small groups or with their family to unravel a series of clues in order to solve a crime, similar to that in the book. 

They will have great fun calculating the height of the criminal from footprints, making deductions about the criminal’s personality traits from sweets and examining fingerprints. Older children can test their ability to analyse short witness statements for facts and inconsistencies. The session is active and fun, with the focus on making deductions and inferences through both reading and practical tasks.   

Ideal for families with children aged 8 to 11 years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult (no more than three children to each adult), additional siblings U12 months, free. 


Gabriella Gordon is the author of Sweet Crime, Sweet Justice, the first of four interwoven Casebooks packed with adventure, laughter and sadness, all set in a hidden Yorkshire world. 

A great read for 8–to 11–year–olds, and anyone with a curious mind.
