Coming to Torbay this summer, all the way from the British Museum, is a mysterious ancient arm-ring. This jewel was found along the local seashore but how did it get there? Who owned the golden arm-ring? What story lies behind it?

Join writers Sarah and Olivia for an immersive and fun packed creative writing workshop. Walk in the footsteps of Agatha Christie’s great detectives to uncover a great riddle. Follow a trail of cryptic clues in the stunning gardens of Torre Abbey and create your own story to solve The Mystery of the Golden Arm-Ring.
