After an online existence in 2020, which marked 30 years since it was first held, the International Agatha Christie Festival, funded by Arts Council England, returned to the English Riviera in September. The Festival is now over until 2022. Details of the programme will be announced next Spring and tickets will go on sale around the same time.
Among many highlights of the Festival in 2021:
- The UK professional premiere of THE STRANGER, Agatha Christie’s gripping psychological thriller;
- Award-winning authors ANTHONY HOROWITZ and KATE MOSSE in conversation;
- A NEW EXHIBITION ABOUT AGATHA CHRISTIE and her travels in the middle East, developed with the Christie Archive Trust;
- AN AGATHA CHRISTIE TREASURE HUNT AT GREENWAY, Agatha Christie’s beautiful home on the river Dart;
- Award-winning actress ANNETTE BADLAND in a special event on The Golden Hind in Brixham harbour;
- A new film, AGATHA CHRISTIE AND THE NEAR EAST, about the archaeological experiences of Christie and her husband Max Mallowan in Iraq and Syria;
- A HOST OF ACKNOWLEDGED AUTHORITIES ON AGATHA CHRISTIE’S LIFE AND WORK ON STAGE AND SCREEN AT A RANGE OF VENUES ACROSS THE ENGLISH RIVIERA.
There were several online events, including talks by authors Christopher Huang, Manjiri Pradhu and Sonia Feertchak, Christie experts Chris Chan and ‘Harley Quin’ and the 2021 Festival Fan Guest of Honour Scott Wallace Baker.
