Gala Opening of the Fringe Festival

Agatha Christie Festival & The Lucky 7 Club presents "Sparkling Cyanide - A Scintillating Soiree!"

Perfect partners, Agatha Christie Festival and The Lucky 7 Club present the gala opening of the 2024 Festival - an exciting & eclectic theatre event with vintage vibes; unique Lucky 7 Club styling combined with a drop-dead gorgeous stage show in Brixham’s beautiful heritage theatre.

Expect a scintillating soiree with oodles of vintage glamour...

Feisty flappers, femmes fatales, dapper daredevils, moustachioed marvels - innovative, intelligent, provocative, inspiring, jaw-dropping – marvel at the serious costuming and the glitterati - that’s just the audience!

A little party never killed nobody so let’s have drinks and a shimmy before the show and during the interval - the soundtrack mixes up a vintage bag of music including retro jukebox classics, soul, blues, mambo, rock ‘n’ roll, funk, electro swing, disco and cool cheese, the joint will be jumping!

Grab your friends, your foes, men of mystery, dangerous dames and your favourite detective for a night of thrills & spills!

Getting to the venue

The number 12 bus runs from Torquay harbour and along the seafront to Brixham and takes about 30 minutes. These depart every 20 minutes or so and stop right outside Brixham theatre (last stop). Buses run until 3am! Find out more from the Stagecoach website. It's also possible to travel over to Brixham earlier by boat (although you will need to return by bus or taxi). Find out more from the English Riviera website.

Eating and refreshments

Why not plan to visit Brixham a bit earlier and enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many bars and restaurants? You won't get fresher fish and chips anywhere in the UK.


There is non-assisted wheelchair access to the main auditorium via a lift (elevator), with step-free access to standard toilets and accessible toilets available. If you have any specific access requirements or questions, please email
