Midsomer Tours on Facebook!

The Midsomer Walking Tours of Thame, inspired by the popularity of the long-running TV series Midsomer Murders, have become a well-established part of the local scene since they began three years ago. Feedback from people taking the tours has been 100% positive but, until now, it’s not been possible for anyone to comment about them on social media.

This has just changed, and on Friday 14th June a brand new Midsomer Tours Facebook page was launched, www.facebook.com/thamemidsomertours.

Thame Midsomer Tours would love to hear from people whether they’ve been on the tour previously or are planning to go on one. Tony Long, tours coordinator, said, ‘If everyone can ‘like’ the new Facebook page, write a review, perhaps including a photo taken during a tour, and spread the news about the page to friends and family, that will help us get well and truly on the social map. It will also help us assess the growing popularity of the tours and take note of any suggestions for how we can improve the visitor experience’.

The new Facebook page was created by Sarah Fletcher of Mushroom Souffle, a local social media consultancy, and funded through the South Oxfordshire District Council’s Councillor Grant Scheme.

In two years, Thame ‘s Midsomer walking tours have attracted 600 participants from the UK and other countries as far apart as Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands. This year, it’s hoped over 500 people will take part. Tony Long, tours coordinator, added, ‘We feel this shows how popular the tours have become. The new Facebook page can only increase their popularity’.

The tours take place every Wednesday at 11.00 am until 30th October. They start from inside Thame Museum (79 High Street, Thame, OX9 3AE), a filming location. Tickets cost £7.50 each and may be purchased online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/thamemidsomer. Alternatively, simply turn up on the day and pay at the Museum.
