Join us here in Torquay for the 125th Birthday Celebrations for the ‘Queen of Crime’, Agatha Christie.

Taking place this year at Torre Abbey, The International Agatha Christie Festival is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading literary festivals!

Her much-loved characters include Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot who have been portrayed on and off the screen for decades, as well as the lesser-known Tommy and Tuppence, Harley Quin, Parker Pyne and of course the inscrutable  Ariadne Oliver (who enjoyed eating apples in the bath!)

Agatha Christie is one of Torbay’s best-known and best-loved figures and by the time she died aged 85, on 12th January 1976 she had published an amazing 79 crime novels, 6 romantic novels, 22 short story collections, 19 plays and including her own auto-biography, 2 non-fiction works. Come and learn more about this wonderful author, visit some of her favourite haunts such as Greenway, Torre Abbey or Beacon Cove and maybe glean a little inspiration yourself!
