Devon Prepares for Agatha Christie Festival

Mystery fans headed to the UK will want to check out the Agatha Christie Festival next month on the English Riviera in South Devon, from September 11 to 18.

Fans can enjoy exclusive visits to Christie's holiday home at Greenway, vintage bus rides, murder mystery dinners, tea dances, garden parties and more, and the play Agatha Christie’s Verdict will run at the Princess Theatre, produced by the Agatha Christie Theatre Company. The festival begins with the traditional Agatha Christie Fete on the 11th, where stall holders will dress in their 1920s/30s finery and where the day’s entertainment will include live music, magic, Punch and Judy and dancing.

Throughout the festival at Paignton Library, there will be a rare opportunity to view first hand an original manuscript for her book Five Little Pigs, which includes specific references to Greenway.
