Agatha Christie Festival, Torquay, 2014

14th – 21st September 2014

Each September, the English Riviera transforms itself into the murder mystery capital of the country, with ladies and gents in their period finery immersing themselves in tea parties, theatre, dinners on steam trains and vintage bus tours. Why? For the annual Agatha Christie Festival in honour of the Queen of Crime, who was born in Torquay on 15th September 1890.

Murder Mysteries Aplenty!

The festival is a fabulous occasion for fans from all over the world to congregate and celebrate Dame Agatha Christie’s life and times. Round every corner there is a murder mystery: on steam trains, in spooky country inns, and in rambling seaside pubs.

Celebrations kick off with the traditional Agatha Christie Fete on Torquay seafront, when stallholders dress up in their 1920s and ‘30s best and there are jazz bands, Punch and Judy shows and fairground rides.

As the festival unfolds you’ll experience garden parties to die for, lunches at Burgh Island, exclusive Twilight Tours of Greenway and plenty of Devon Cream Teas (Agatha was a big fan of Devon cream!). You’ll also find competitions, book launches, panel events with guest appearances and there’s even an Agatha Christie Sea Swim – in aid of the Devon Air Ambulance, and a nod to Agatha’s love of bathing.
