Greenway are celebrating the anniversary of Agatha Christie’s birthday with a 1950s fête in the style of Dead Man’s Folly, Christie’s novel which was inspired by the house, gardens and surrounding landscapes of Greenway. Come and enjoy the traditional fun and games in the Walled Garden.
At the Greenway fête, traditional fête stalls and activities will be in place in honour of the 1950s setting, from a coconut shy to a plant stall, a bird of prey appearance, second-hand book stall, to games like ball-in-a-bucket. A treasure hunt trail will be paying homage to the story’s staged murder hunt.
Normal admission to Greenway applies. There will be small charges on stalls and stands for some activities.
If travelling by car, please book your parking in advance at Greenway. Or also why not enjoy the wonderful experience of travelling to Greenway by the Dart Steam Railway departing from Paignton to Greenway Halt. Full train details and services can be found here.
