Overview

Agatha Christie Festival Ltd is a charity, funded by Arts Council England and an Associated Partner of the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.

Our aim is to use the extraordinary power and reach of Agatha Christie’s global reputation to promote engagement and participation in literature and the arts, help the recovery and growth of Torbay’s local economy and wider efforts to increase tourism and support work to understand and promote the area’s literary and geological heritage.

To achieve this, and working with private, public and third sector partners in Torbay and South Devon, we stage an annual festival for local people and Christie’s legion fans across Britain and around the world to celebrate Christie’s life and legacy, including high profile speakers and performances of her plays and poetry.

Full details of the Festival programme and fringe events will be published in June when tickets will go on sale. To be among the first to find out, follow the Festival on Twitter and Facebook (@AgathaFestival).

Devon Open Studios

Devon Open Studios is a unique opportunity to meet artists in their studios in some of the most beautiful, unexplored parts of Devon or to connect with them online.  In addition to being able to buy art direct from the creator, many demonstrate, give talks or give you a chance to have a go. A cornucopia of art is on offer across Devon when over 200 resident artists and crafts people open their studios to show and sell their individual artworks to the public each September. The diversity of studios is remarkable; you can explore venues ranging from potter’s studios in meadows to medieval barns, sinuous sculpture gardens or garrets by the sea. These hidden havens reveal fascinating work in every medium that allows the opportunity to purchase affordable art, directly from the artist, and without gallery commission. Venture out on self-guided art tours using our free full colour event guide or just by spontaneously following the yellow arrows scattered about the countryside. Meet the artists, participate in workshops and events, or simply create your own journey of discovery in this most spectacular landscape.
