We aim to stage events at events with full access for people with disabilities. Where access is limited for reasons beyond our control, details will be provided in the information on each event when we publish the programme.
Can I bring my dog to Festival events?
The Festival’s main venue is at Torre Abbey, where dogs (excluding assistance dogs) are unfortunately not allowed in the house or gardens. Do look out for any events specifically aimed at dog owners and their four-legged friends, including the Wagatha Mystery.
Will there be food and drink available?
For events held at Torre Abbey there will be a range of food and drink available throughout the Festival week, and there are cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance of Torre Abbey. For events at other locations, please check on the venue’s website.
Where can I stay during the Festival?
There are a huge number of places to stay right across the towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, from hotels, to guest houses and apartments to B&Bs. Find recommendations on the English Riviera website.
Can I buy books and other merchandise at the Festival?
We have a book shop in the Spanish Barn at Torre Abbey that will be selling a range of relevant books, including those by our guest speakers. They will usually be delighted to sign your books for you.
We also have a range of Agatha Christie Festival merchandise on sale, which supports our charity and our work with local young people throughout Torbay and the rest of Devon.
