One of the English Riviera’s major events of the year, the Agatha Christie Festival is next month, and one event is already fully booked. 

But there are still a fantastic range of interesting and stimulating events available, including performances of Verdict at the Princess Theatre, fetes, boat journeys up the River Dart, vintage bus tours to Greenway, lectures, movies and various tea dances and dinners. On 15 September, Agatha Christie’s birthday, there is a special afternoon tea dance in the Grand Hotel, where she and Archie Christie honeymooned, and a celebratory three course dinner at The Barcelo Imperial Hotel in the evening with a view of the firework display.
