From 13th – 17th September 2017, join the festival team for  5 days full of intrigue and extraordinary art celebrating the life and fascinations of Dame Agatha Christie Mallowan.

This year’s theme takes it’s cue from Agatha Christie’s book, Come, Tell Me How You Live. Published in 1946, it chronicles her travels across the Middle East on archaeological digs with her husband, Max Mallowan.

As such, alongside the many wonderful happenings for the loyal fan of Agatha’s better known works, this year’s IACF brings an added international dimension with an eclectic range of extraordinary stories, performances, readings and more that Agatha Christie herself would have surely delighted in!

The full programme is now on the website so you can plan your visit to Torbay: join the team for a full 5 day Grand Tour giving access to the whole programme plus unique events such as a guided tour of Agatha Christie’s favourite cinema, the Paignton Picturehouse and a champagne breakfast at the Grand Hotel; or to just come along to our weekend Garden Party at Torre Abbey, with live music, open air cinema, stalls, delicious food & drink and more.

Various other ticket options are available, including Day and Weekender passes – click here for details. (Please note there will be limited individual event tickets for certain events made available closer the time).
