Welcome to the International Agatha Christie Festival
Exciting news for the International Agatha Christie Festival! Earlier this year the Festival was granted charitable status by the UK’s Charities Commission, in recognition of our mission to continue the memory of the world’s best-selling crime novelist and most successful woman playwright, and expand on our arts, cultural, educational and heritage activities linked to her work and interests.
To support our mission, as of 2017, the festival will become a biennial event. This will allow us more time to create an outstanding programme of events for Agatha Christie fans to enjoy, building on the success of the festival in 2015. The main festival will be complemented with an Agatha Christie Day on alternate years, taking place on Agatha Christie’s birthday. This year, a special event will be held on Thursday 15th September in Torquay. We’ll be back in touch with more details when they become available.
