A celebration of unheard voices both near and far gathered to “Come, tell me how you live”, this year’s International Agatha Christie Festival transforms Torre Abbey into five days of eclectic and unexpected song, stories, dance, extraordinary objects from ordinary lives, provocative lectures and other amazing journeys. All the while enjoy tea on the lawn, and other more adventurous and mysterious places to stretch out, curl up, and conjure up the missing clue.
