From murder ballads like Northumbria's The Twa Sisters (circa 1656) to Neil Young's Down by the River, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, Cole Porter's Miss Otis Regrets, and Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise, murder and mayhem have inspired songwriters through the ages, in every genre. Will you be next? Ben Please and Beth Porter, aka The Bookshop Band, write bespoke songs based on some of literature's biggest names. Find out how one of the country's most prolific bands craft lyrics and let them guide you in writing a song based on your favourite crime novel. You'll come away with the beginnings of a masterpiece of your own. Age: 16 and over only, unless accompanied by an adult with a ticket
